Doja Cat Shifts Gears From Pop To Focus On Rap

April 10, 2023 | By Kali Girl

It looks like Doja Cat is about to shake things up! According to Hip Hop DX, she recently announced that she’s stepping away from the pop star label and focusing on improving her rap skills.

On April 8, she shared her plans for a fresh start when she tweeted, “no more pop.”

“I also agree with everyone who said the majority of my rap verses are mid and corny,” she continued, responding to her critics. “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.”

When asked by someone in the comments, what inspired her next move, she replied, “pop isn’t exciting to me anymore. I don’t wanna make it.”

Doja recently sat down with Variety and gave us a sneak peek into what we can expect from her upcoming fourth studio album, Hellmouth.

She let us know that she’ll be taking a “more masculine direction” this time, a creative direction she’s exploring following the success of her chart-topping 2021 project, Planet Her.

“I know that I’ve done a lot of pink and soft things, a lot of pop and glittery sounds,” she said. “But for this next era, I’m going in a more masculine direction.”

While keeping the release date under wraps, Doja shared the release will be a mixture of hip-hop and R&B.

“If you wanted a teaser into what I’ve been thinking about, that’s what I’ve been on a lot. And just to make it clear, Beastie Boys is a huge inspiration to me.
