Doja Cat is an award winner, meme-creator, and headline generator. The LA-based “I Like You (A Happier Song)” singer/rapper has amassed over 25 million Instagram followers who regularly tune into her Instagram Live videos to hear her sing improvised songs about getting strep throat, animals, or really anything she’s in the mood for.
Besides her spontaneous social media songs, Doja Cat has created quite the catalog of music. Her impulsive, somewhat outrageous persona is alluring to many rap audiences, as she gives off nostalgic vibes and is sometimes honest to a fault. The “Freaky Deaky” performer even won a Grammy this year for her collaboration with SZA, “Kiss Me More,” and was up for seven other honors at the ceremony in 2022. While accepting the golden gramophone, Doja Cat got emotional (and almost missed her big moment because she was in the bathroom), telling the gathered audience of her peers, “I like to downplay sh*t. But this? It’s a big deal.”
