Doja Cat has spoken about the new music she has been making as she works on her fourth studio album. Speaking to CR Fashion Book in a new interview, Grammy winner Doja said she is "very into this ’90s German rave kind of vibe right now," noting that it is "really fun."
Planet Her, Doja Cat's most recent album, was released in 2021. In the same interview Doja said the challenge facing her and her collaborators is that they have "so many ideas" making them "consistent" is proving difficult.
Heading in a club-ready direction is in style in 2022, with both Drake's Honestly, Nevermind and Beyoncé’s Renaissance pulling from house and disco with refreshing results. Doja acknowledged this but said she is doing something different. "I know that’s kind of the trend at the moment but I loved that stuff as a kid and now that I can express it (obviously, I couldn’t buzz my head and wear a furry bra and have a belly button piercing back then), I’m sort of embracing that," she said. "That’s kind of a hint to the album. Rave culture, not house."
Earlier this year, Doja was forced to pull out of a tour supporting The Weeknd after undergoing tonsil surgery. She also teamed up with Post Malone on his "I Like You (A Happier Song)" and contributed "Vegas" to the Elvis soundtrack. She is also rumored to be on M.I.A.'s next album, Mata.
