Scarlet auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Scarlet is the fourth studio album by American rapper and singer Doja Cat. It was released through Kemosabe and RCA Records on September 22, 2023. Disillusioned with pop music and dissatisfied with music critics questioning her status as a rapper, Doja Cat felt inspired to create a "masculine" follow-up to her third studio album, Planet Her (2021). Her first project with no features since her debut extended play, Purrr! (2014), the record marks a departure from the pop-driven sounds of its predecessor, being predominantly centered around the genres of hip hop and R&B.

Scarlet produced two singles. Its lead single, "Paint the Town Red", became a massive commercial success, and marked Doja Cat's first solo number-one on the US Billboard Hot 100, the UK Singles Chart, the Billboard Global 200, and several other national charts worldwide. It was followed by the top-ten single "Agora Hills". Promotional singles for the album include "Attention",[1] "Demons",[2] and "Balut".

Scarlet peaked at number four on the US Billboard 200, becoming Doja Cat's third top-ten entry on the chart. It received mostly positive reviews from critics, many of whom praised its production, lyrics, and versatility in comparison to her previous albums. To support the album, Doja Cat embarked on the Scarlet Tour, her first arena tour as a headliner. The album's deluxe edition, titled Scarlet 2 Claude, was released on April 5, 2024.


Doja Cat began her career as a rapper heavily involved with the underground scene in her hometown of Los Angeles.[3] She rose to prominence as an internet meme, following the viral success of her novelty song, "Mooo!", released in August 2018.[4][5] She continued to gain mainstream attention with her pop and R&B-infused second studio album, Hot Pink (2019).[6][7] The remix to its standout single, "Say So" featuring Nicki Minaj, became the first song by a female rap duo to reach number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.[8][9] Doja Cat's third studio album, Planet Her (2021), continued the pop-R&B blend and was met with critical and commercial success.[10] It became the most-streamed album by a female rapper on Spotify, and its lead single, "Kiss Me More" featuring SZA, won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.[11][12]

After being nominated for the BET Award for Best Female Hip Hop Artist in May 2021, Doja Cat was criticized by social media users who felt she was "too pop" to be considered as a rapper. She responded to the criticism on Twitter, by writing, "Don't ever fuckin [sic] disrespect me as a rapper. After the last song I dropped, you will respect my pen and that's fuckin [sic] that."[13] She weighed in further on the debate during a cover story with Rolling Stone in December, saying, "Anyone who says that I'm not a rapper is in denial. They don't know what they're talking about."[14] A few days after the profile piece was published, Doja Cat revealed on an Instagram livestream that she was interested in creating a double album; with one side focused on her pop rap sounds, and the other side containing 12 hip hop songs produced by 9th Wonder and Jay Versace.[15][16]

In an interview with Elle in May 2022, Doja Cat addressed claims that she was not a rapper in the "traditional sense" by stating that she has "rapped since the beginning, and I really couldn't even sing that well to begin with—I got a lot better. I use my voice as a tool to create these worlds, and it's fine if people think that I can't rap." She also confirmed that her upcoming fourth studio album will be "predominantly rap".[17] She doubled down on the album's main genre in April 2023 by stating "no more pop", and that she agrees with "everyone who said the majority of my rap verses are mid and corny. I know they are. I wasn't trying to prove anything, I just enjoy making music. But I'm getting tired of hearing y'all say that I can't, so I will."[18][19] Doja Cat also denounced her previous two albums as "cash grabs" and "digestible pop hits".[20] On April 26, radio personality Ebro Darden shared that he had the opportunity to listen to approximately eight songs from the album while it was in its "early stages", stating "I heard straight rap records".[21] After being asked about potential producers, he responded "I don't even think it's producers that we know. I think she's got her own batch of producers."[21] In April 2023, while drafting the tracklist, she revealed the titles of several tracks that would later make the final cut.[22] On August 27, she revealed that the album was finished,[23] and she announced the release of the album three days later.[24]



While recording the album, Doja Cat was heavily inspired by occult imagery, such as Fortunio Liceti's De monstris (1655).[25]

Leading up to the album's release, Doja Cat adopted a darker aesthetic and image, claiming that she had "a lot of pent-up feelings and anger" which she wanted to express through beauty, further describing her new style as "punk", "experimental" and "manic".[26] She initially shaved her hair and eyebrows,[27] and then got a number of tattoos,[28] including a creature from Fortunio Liceti's De monstris (1655) on her arm,[25][29] a scythe surrounding her ear,[30] and the skeleton of a bat on her back, which she claimed to symbolize a "new beginning".[31] At times she also wore red contact lenses and blood-like makeup.[32][33][34] She expressed similar imagery in the music video for singles "Attention"[35] and "Paint the Town Red",[36] the latter of which also depicted occult-like paintings by Doja Cat herself.[37] These changes in her persona received criticism from some fans,[38] who deemed these changes "demonic",[29][33][36] and accused her of being a Satanist,[39][40][41] and a member of the Illuminati.[42][43] She was unbothered by these reactions, tweeting in February 2023 that she enjoyed "playing with people’s ignorance and stupidity for [her] own happiness and personal gain",[44] and then in April 2023 addressed her fans in saying "Your fear is not my problem".[25] Jason King of All Things Considered wrote that on Scarlet, Doja Cat "delights in playing the 'demon' her haters and fans accuse her of being."[45]

Doja Cat shared a name for the album, Hellmouth, in March 2023.[46][47] By April, she was unsure of whether or not the name would stick,[48] and later clarified to Interview magazine that she did not have an album name yet, with the working title subject to potential change.[49] While speaking to Time for their annual list of influential people, she shared that she "might just mess with everybody and completely turn the tables on them. But I like the idea of Hellmouth because it sounds good. And it's provocative."[50] On May 9, she revealed another title, First of All, through social media, before retracting on May 15.[51][52] In an interview with Business Insider on May 26, Doja Cat revealed that the reason she kept changing the title is due to a combination of indecisiveness and crowdsourcing. She described her process for selecting an album title as her putting her "ADHD kind of on display — by accident, I guess. I thought that Hellmouth was the name of the album, but then it wasn't. But I'm good at doing things last minute. So I've been firing off random stuff and reading comments and seeing how people receive it and then, you know, saying 'no' a lot. 'Just kidding'." She concluded by saying she thinks she finally has a name for the album, and swiftly added, "It's not First of All."[53]

In an article for Harper's Bazaar, author Angie Martinez revealed the title to be Scarlet, on August 16, 2023.[26] "Scarlet" is the name to an alter ego adopted by Doja Cat which symbolizes rebirth, "the reimagination of the self", and "the birth of a new creative, or new thought, or new way of style that you're expressing".[1] After having tweeted "Scarlet is here" on June 16,[54] the alter ego made her debut in the music video for "Attention" where she was seen in the nude and painted head-to-toe in red blood.[1] Several wax figures of this Scarlet character began appearing in public locations around the United States, such as a subway station and Tompkins Square Park in New York City,[1][55] and both Wrigley Field and Riverwalk in Chicago.[56]


On August 29, 2023, Doja Cat initially shared an album cover to Instagram which featured a painting of a big pinkish arachnid and a small drop of blood; containing no text.[57] Fans then noticed that it looked almost identical to the cover for Of Gloom, the third studio album by German metalcore band Chaver, which was slated for release on the same day as Scarlet. Both covers were designed by American artist Dusty Ray,[58][59] whom Chaver wrote had "been with [them] since [their] first album". Doja Cat then deleted the post from her Instagram the following day, while Chaver's post remained online and the band continued to promote the album with this cover.[60] She revealed an "updated" cover the day after, which was also designed by Ray, featuring two pearlescent arachnids instead of the single pink arachnid.[61] The original cover is the album's alternate art for its CD packaging.

Notably, Scarlet is also the first Doja Cat album where she does not appear on the cover.


During a cover story with Variety in February 2023, Doja Cat expressed that Scarlet will diverge from the "pink and soft things" and "pop and glittery sounds" that she has been noted for; opting instead for a more "masculine" sonic direction.[62][63] She claimed to have purposefully misled journalists and fans into thinking that her album would be inspired by 1990s German rave music, rock, experimental jazz and R&B, rather than rap.[64] However, it was later confirmed that the upcoming album will blend various hip hop and R&B genres, although Doja Cat stated that this album would exclusively contain rap songs.[62][65] She admitted that she had become tired of creating pop songs, adding that the genre is not exciting to her anymore.[66][67]

In an interview with Rolling Stone in June 2023, Doja expanded on the influences and inspiration for her upcoming album, saying that she had been reconnecting with the music that she was raised listening to, such as Erykah Badu, John Coltrane and 90s hip hop.[68]

Doja Cat explained that "Attention", "Paint the Town Red", and "Demons" were all written during a period before she recorded the rest of Scarlet in Malibu, California within the space of ten days, noting that the songs recorded during the second period are very different in nature.[69]

Release and promotion


"Paint the Town Red", the lead single of Scarlet, was released on August 4, 2023, to commercial success.[70] The song became her first solo single to top the Billboard Global 200,[71] as well as the US Billboard Hot 100,[72] the UK Singles Chart,[73] the Canadian Hot 100,[74] and national charts in several other countries such as Australia,[75] Ireland,[76] and New Zealand.[77]

"Agora Hills" followed as the second and final single, released in tandem with Scarlet on September 22, 2023.[78] Its music video was co-directed by Doja Cat and Hannah Lux Davis.[79] It reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.[80]

Three promotional singles preceded the album's release as well. The first, "Attention",[1] was released on June 16, 2023, alongside an accompanying music video directed by Tanu Muino.[81] It reached the top 40 in Australia,[82] the United States,[83] and the United Kingdom.[84] It was followed by "Demons"[2] on September 1, 2023[85] alongside a music video co-directed by Christian Breslauer and Doja Cat and co-starring American actress Christina Ricci;[86] the trailer first premiered at Cinespia in Los Angeles on August 27.[87][88] "Balut" was released as the third promotional single on September 15, 2023.[89][90]

Tour and live performances

On June 23, 2023, Doja Cat announced The Scarlet Tour,[91] exactly 67 days before she officially revealed Scarlet as the title of the album.[24] The first headlining arena tour of her career,[92] it visited North America and Europe. Rappers Doechii and Ice Spice served as supporting acts on the North American leg while singer Hemlocke Springs opened for the Europe trek.[93][94] This comes after the Hot Pink Tour in support of her second album was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[95] The Scarlet Tour commenced on October 31, 2023, in San Francisco, United States, and will conclude on July 14, 2024, in London, England, consisting of 25 dates across the US, 15 in Europe, and 1 date in Canada.[96] Fan registration for the tour took place on June 25, followed by its presale three days later. Tickets went on sale on June 30 via Ticketmaster.[97]

At the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards, Doja performed a medley of "Attention", "Paint the Town Red", and "Demons", dressed in a grey suit and glasses, and trailed by multiple dancers resembling the blood-soaked "Scarlet" alter ego.[98] Justin Curto of Vulture highlighted the performance as one of the best moments of the night, describing the "preppy" outfit as "giving Joan Cusack in School of Rock",[99] while Joey Nolfi of Entertainment Weekly compared it to Britney Spears in the "...Baby One More Time" music video.[100] Pitchfork's Madison Bloom echoed Nolfi's sentiment while describing the dancers' choreography as "recall[ing] Luca Guadagnino's Suspiria remake" and praising the performance as one of the best of the night.[101] In late September, Doja performed "Ouchies" and "Attention" at the 2023 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which was released as a Prime Video special titled The Tour '23.[102] The following month, she performed "Paint the Town Red" and "Agora Hills" on the Live Lounge.[103]

Commercial performance

Scarlet officially debuted at number four on the US Billboard 200 dated October 7, 2023. The album moved 72,000 album-equivalent units in its opening week, of which 6,000 were pure album sales. This marked Doja's third top ten album in the United States. Scarlet also opened at number two on both the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Top Rap Albums charts, making it her first entry on the latter.[104]

Internationally, the album peaked within the top 30 in every territory it charted in with the exception of Nigeria, where it peaked at number 45. In the United Kingdom, Scarlet debuted at number five on the UK Albums Chart. The album also peaked within the top ten in New Zealand, Canada, Australia, Norway, Slovakia, Lithuania, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic, while reaching the top twenty in Poland, Switzerland, France, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Croatia.

Scarlet received generally positive reviews from music critics. On Metacritic, which assigns a weighted mean score based on ratings from publications, the album scored 70 out of 100 based on 13 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[106] Aggregating ten critic scores, AnyDecentMusic? rated Scarlet a 6.6 out of 10.[105]

Variety's Jem Aswad dubbed Scarlet as Doja Cat's best album, giving heavy praise towards her songwriting and the album's production. He found some "sags in a couple of spots," but wrote that the album "sets a new bar on multiple levels, and not just for female rappers."[115] PJ Somerville of The Line of Best Fit predicted that Scarlet would be a divisive listen, but lauded Doja Cat's ability to "paint a vivid picture" and "create a hit".[112] The Independent's Roisin O'Connor complimented how Doja Cat incorporated the styles of her musical influences, highlighting Nicki Minaj's "wide-eyed insouciance" on "Gun", D'Angelo's "gorgeous" croons on "Often" and Kendrick Lamar's "silky, dangerous tones" on "Demons".[111]

Nick Levine of NME found Scarlet to be an "overlong, slightly repetitive but ultimately compelling album of two halves."[113] Alexis Petridis for The Guardian disliked the album's "weird" structure and distorted approach to its love songs.[110] Rolling Stone's Larisha Paul deemed Scarlet to be "just another chapter" of Doja Cat "burning the pages of the rulebook on pop stardom."[116] Concluding her review for Clash, Madeline Smith wrote, "At its core, Scarlet is an interesting exploration into the world of ego trips, the trappings of fame, escapism and novelty, a welcome deviation with a heightened sense of maturity and finesse."[109]

Scarlet 2 Claude

Scarlet 2 Claude (stylized as Scarlet 2 CLAUDE) is the deluxe edition of Doja Cat's fourth studio album, Scarlet (2023). It was released through Kemosabe and RCA Records on April 5, 2024. The deluxe edition contains seven new tracks and features guest appearances by ASAP Rocky and Teezo Touchdown. It was supported by the singles "Masc" and "Okloser".

Background and release

During an interview on The Therapy Gecko Podcast in February 2024, Doja Cat confirmed that she was gearing to release the deluxe edition of Scarlet, tentatively named Scarlet 2: Claude Frollo.[165] On March 29, Doja Cat announced the deluxe edition's lead single, "Masc", and shared the album's cover art. Scarlet 2 Claude was released on April 5, 2024, containing seven new tracks. "Masc" featuring Teezo Touchdown was released simultaneously as its lead single, accompanied by a music video directed by Doja Cat and Jamal Peters.[166] On April 23, 2024, "Okloser" impacted rhythmic contemporary radio as the album's second single.[167] On May 17, 2024, alternate versions of the deluxe tracks "Disrespectful" and "Acknowledge Me" as well as the standard track "Shutcho" were added to Scarlet 2 Claude. All tracks feature South African a cappella group the Joy, with whom Doja Cat had performed during her Coachella 2024 set.[168]

Title and artwork

Scarlet 2 Claude is titled after Claude Frollo, the antagonist of Victor Hugo's 1831 novel The Hunchback of Notre-Dame. On The Therapy Gecko Podcast, Doja Cat revealed she chose to name the edition after Frollo because she felt that his tyrannical personality "connects to the story of Scarlet in some way," and serves as a "metaphor for the people that creatives endure on a daily basis in a bigger picture, a bigger scale."[169]

On March 29, Doja Cat shared the album's cover artwork. Some fans commented that the artwork resembled sheep's wool or pubic hair. In response, she criticized these comparisons and explained that "I had a photographer take a picture of the top of my head. And we blew it up and we made it so that my album cover is my hair. So my hair, to describe it, is 4C hair texture," referring to the classification according to the Andre Walker Hair Typing System.[170]

Doja Cat (2020)

Amalaratna „Amala“ Zandile Dlamini (* 21. Oktober 1995 in Los Angeles, Kalifornien), besser bekannt unter ihrem Künstlernamen Doja Cat, ist eine US-amerikanische Rapperin, Sängerin und Songwriterin. Nach Veröffentlichung ihres Debütalbums 2018 wurde ihre Single Mooo! und das dazugehörige YouTube-Video ein Meme. Mit ihrem zweiten Studioalbum Hot Pink und insbesondere der Nummer-eins-Single Say So schaffte sie 2020 auch den kommerziellen Durchbruch.


Dlamini kam 1995 in Los Angeles als Tochter des südafrikanischen Schauspielers Dumisani Dlamini und der jüdisch-amerikanischen Künstlerin Deborah Elizabeth Sawyer zur Welt. Dumisani Dlamini ist für seine Rollen im Musicalfilm Sarafina! und der kontroversen Jugendserie Yizo Yizo bekannt und verliebte sich während eines US-Aufenthalts in Sawyer, mit der er noch eine weitere Tochter hat. Laut eigenen Angaben wuchs Amala ohne ihren Vater auf.[1]

Als Kind zog sie mit ihrer Mutter nach New York City, wo sie einige Zeit in einem Aschram verbrachte. Später kehrte die Familie nach Los Angeles zurück.[2] Bereits in jungen Jahren erhielt Dlamini Ballett-, Stepp- und Jazztanz- sowie Klavierunterricht.[3] Daneben begeisterte sie sich für das Skateboarden und Surfen. Im Alter von zehn Jahren begann sie mit Breakdance und Popping und gehörte bis zu ihrer Highschoolzeit verschiedenen Dancecrews an. Mit 14 Jahren gab sie via YouTube Make-up-Tutorials, hörte aber auf Wunsch ihrer Mutter wieder damit auf. In der elften Klasse ging sie schließlich von der Schule ab und begann zu rappen.[2][4]


Doja Cat (2019)

Nachdem sie unter dem Namen Doja Cat begonnen hatte, regelmäßig eigene Songs auf SoundCloud und YouTube zu veröffentlichen, vermittelte sie ein Facebook-Freund an den DJ Yeti Beats. So unterschrieb die 17-Jährige beim Label Kemosabe des bekannten Produzenten Dr. Luke ihren ersten Plattenvertrag.[2] 2014 erschien mit Purrr! ihre erste EP, die Single So High brachte ihr erstmals Aufmerksamkeit ein.[3]

Ihr erstes Studioalbum, das selbstbetitelte Amala, erschien im März 2018 und sorgte trotz dreier Singleauskopplungen noch nicht für den gewünschten Erfolg. Vier Monate später veröffentlichte sie die Single Mooo!, die zusammen mit dem Musikvideo ein viraler Hit wurde und für sie den Durchbruch bedeutete. Das Video fühlt sich laut Los Angeles Times an, als hätte das Comedy-Duo Tim & Eric „einen PETA-Werbespot ausschließlich aus Hentai-Clips gedreht“ und zeigt Doja Cat in einem Kuhkostüm rhythmisch tanzend, rappend und essend vor einem Greenscreen.[5] Bis heute generierte das Video auf YouTube mehr als 90 Millionen Klicks und machte einflussreiche Kultur- und Jugendmagazine wie Noisey und The Fader[6] auf die junge Künstlerin aufmerksam. In der Folge wurde Amala Anfang 2019 in einer Deluxe-Version wiederveröffentlicht, die neben Mooo! die zwei neuen Singles Tia Tamera (mit Rico Nasty) und Juicy enthält.

Im Sommer 2019 veröffentlichte Doja Cat einen Remix von Juicy mit einem Gastbeitrag von Tyga, der nicht zuletzt dank Social-Media-Unterstützung von Katy Perry und Chance the Rapper Platz 47 der Billboard Hot 100 erreichte. Nach drei weiteren Singleauskopplungen, darunter das Blink-182-sampelnde Bottom Bitch, ließ sie im November ihr zweites Studioalbum Hot Pink folgen, das es in den US-Albumcharts bis auf Platz neun schaffte. Für das Album konnte sie einige hochkarätige Produzenten und Songschreiber verpflichten, die zuvor mit Künstlern wie Beyoncé, The Weeknd oder Amy Winehouse zusammengearbeitet hatten.[5] Ein Remix der fünften Single-Auskopplung Say So mit Nicki Minaj erreichte im Frühling 2020 Platz eins der Billboard Hot 100. Laut Guinness World Records waren Doja Cat und Nicki Minaj das erste weibliche Rap-Duo, dem das gelang.[7]

Bei den 46th US-People’s Choice Awards gewann die Sängerin in der Kategorie The New Artist of 2020.[8] Für die Grammy Awards 2021 erhielt sie eine Nominierung in der Kategorie Best New Artist,[9] konnte sich jedoch nicht gegen Megan Thee Stallion durchsetzen.[10] Ende Juni desselben Jahres veröffentlichte sie ihr drittes Studioalbum Planet Her, welches unter anderem Features von Ariana Grande und The Weeknd enthält. Bei den Grammy Awards 2022 war sie siebenmal nominiert und konnte gemeinsam mit SZA für den Titel Kiss Me More den Preis in der Kategorie beste Pop-Darbietung eines Duos gewinnen. Ein paar Monate später steuerte sie den Titel Vegas zum Soundtrack der Filmbiografie Elvis bei.

Im April 2023 nahm das Time Magazine Doja Cat in seine Liste der 100 einflussreichsten Persönlichkeiten des Jahres auf.[11]


Die Musik von Doja Cat verarbeitet Einflüsse unterschiedlicher Genres und Themen und bewegt sich zwischen Hip-Hop, Pop und R&B. Ihr frühes Werk zeichnet sich laut Allmusic durch einen verträumten, Meme-freundlichen Sound aus und entwickelte sich später in eine sexuell explizitere Richtung,[3] der von E-Girls und E-Boys rezipiert wird. Ihre musikalischen Einflüsse umfassen Künstler wie Rihanna, D’Angelo, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse, TLC oder ASAP Rocky. Als klare Inspiration nicht nur ihrer Musik, sondern auch ihrer witzigen, sexuell offenherzigen Persona, gilt die Rapperin Nicki Minaj.[5][4] Entscheidender Teil ihres Sounds ist Doja Cats Stimme, deren Ton je nach Track weich und chillig, peppig oder beinahe hektisch sein kann.[12] Dabei beherrscht sie sowohl das Crooning als auch das Rappen aggressiver Verse.[2] Ihre Texte, die sie großteils selbst verfasst, sind von Wortspielen und Sarkasmus geprägt, die von der Welt als „Hip-Hop-Dadaismus“ bezeichnet wurden. Die Durchbruchsingle Mooo! verdankt ihren Erfolg neben dem eingängigen Refrain „Bitch I’m a cow, bitch I’m a cow / I’m not a cat, I don’t say meow“ Anspielungen auf Songs von Kelis und Three 6 Mafia oder das berühmte Kinderlied Old McDonald Had a Farm.[6]

Daneben legt die Künstlerin großen Wert auf die visuelle Präsentation. Die einfallsreichen Musikvideos zeigen sie etwa als verspielt-schlüpfrigen Androiden (Cyber Sex) oder aufmüpfigen Skatepunk (Bottom Bitch). Im Video zu ihrem ersten Chart-Hit Juicy treibt sie das Spiel mit verschiedenen Obstsorten als Metaphern für das weibliche Gesäß auf die Spitze. Auf diese Weise schafft sie es, ihren absurden Humor mit den gegenwärtigen Hip-Hop-Trends und Einflüssen der Netzkultur zu verbinden.[12][5]


Es wird berichtet, dass Doja Cat versucht, ihr Privatleben komplett aus der Öffentlichkeit herauszuhalten.[13] Sie lebte in einem Haus in Beverly Hills, Kalifornien, welches sie 2021 für 2,2 Millionen US-Dollar erwarb.[14]

Für kurze Zeit befand sie sich in einer Beziehung mit dem US-amerikanischen Musiker Jawny, dies von August 2019 bis zur Trennung im Februar 2020.[15] Obgleich sie sich nie zu ihrer sexuellen Orientierung geäußert hat,[16] beruft sich Doja Cat immer wieder auf queere Themen. Sie sagt hierzu, dass sie „Menschen mag, mit denen man Sex haben kann. Und du kannst irgendwie mit jedem Menschen Sex haben.“[17]

Im Juni 2020 spendete Doja Cat 100.000 US-Dollar dem „Justice for Breonna Taylor Fund“, um auch die Familie des Opfers zu unterstützen.


Kurz nach ihrem musikalischen Durchbruch im Sommer 2018 tauchte ein mehrere Jahre alter Tweet auf, in dem sie die Rapper Tyler, the Creator und Earl Sweatshirt als „faggots“ (Schwuchteln) bezeichnet hatte.[18] Doja Cat verteidigte die Tweets zunächst, entschuldigte sich aber wenig später dafür und löschte die fraglichen Beiträge.[19]

Im Mai 2020 veröffentlichte Sängerin Lana Del Rey eine Nachricht auf Instagram, in der sie sich über Kritik an ihren Texten beschwerte, während andere Musikerinnen, darunter neben Doja Cat Beyoncé und Ariana Grande, mit ähnlichen Inhalten erfolgreich seien. Doja Cat reagierte als Einzige der Genannten mit dem kryptischen Satz „gang sunk that dunker“.[20] Wenig später tauchte ein Doja-Cat-Song aus dem Jahr 2015 mit dem Titel Dindu Nuffin auf. Dieser Ausdruck (abgeleitet von Didn’t do nothinghab’ nichts getan) wird in der Alt-Right-Szene gebraucht, um afroamerikanische Opfer von Polizeigewalt zu verhöhnen. Nach massiven Twitter-Protesten entschuldigte sich die Rapperin sowohl für das Lied als auch die Verwendung verschiedener einschlägiger Chatrooms.[21]
