 “…a clever crash course in black American pop culture…endless nostalgia-fueled fun… a bop.” – Pitchfork “The Ones”

 “[Doja]…takes to the podium to show off her potent lyrical ability and delivers a raunchy opening verse.” – Billboard

 “A new dynamic duo…the two artists complement one another’s fiery personas, with Doja relying on her literary wordplay and wit, and Rico bringing the rage…It’s raunchy, rebellious, and real rap.” – OkayPlayer

 Critical Praise for Amala:

About Doja Cat

Born and raised in L.A.,  Doja Cat made her first upload to Soundcloud in 2013 at just 16-years-old. She developed a knack for music by studying piano and dance as a kid and listening to the likes of Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and more. Soon, she went from obsessing over Catwoman (the Halle Berry version) to “crate digging” on YouTube. The budding talent taught herself Logic and how to compose on a midi controller.

Signed to RCA during 2014, she unveiled her acclaimed Purrr! EP. Its lead single “So High” impressively racked up over 30 million cumulative streams and garnered praise from tastemakers such as Fader, Vibe, Paper, Pigeons & Planes, and more. Averaging nearly half-a-million monthly listeners on Spotify, she further engaged that growing fan base by touring with the likes of Lizzo, Father and Theophilus London. Along the way, she assembled what would become her debut album, Amala.

Cooking up vibrantly, candy-coated beats, dropping bars doubled-up on double entendre,and singing with claws out, Amala unlocks a sweetly sexy world soundtracked by wild hip-hop, twisted pop, and smoked-out R&B. Asserting a feline-esque dominance and a style that can only be described as every color in a box of crayons, Doja Cat’s unapologetic charisma, charm, and confidence immediately take center stage.

In August 2018, she released what would become her viral hit “Mooo!” which enjoyed over 10 million views on YouTube and Twitter in just a couple of days and was met with critical acclaim. With co-signs from Chance The Rapper, Katy Perry, Chris Brown and J.Cole among others, “Mooo!” propelled Doja Cat forward and added many fans to her already feverishly loyal fan base. She went on to embark on a nearly sold out headlining North American tour this past fall and is gearing up for new music coming soon.
