During a recent Instagram Live stream, she said that she feels pressured and hasn’t had an opportunity to make music for fun for years. Doja Cat said in he recent interview that she’s going to start being more selective with who she works with in the future.
“And I mean make music like willy nilly, like just have fun and just jam and make some shit. I haven’t done that in maybe five years, feels like.” “I’m doing all this shit that I don’t fucking wanna do. I don’t wanna take fucking pictures. Like, yes…planning a photoshoot is very fun. Capturing a concept, capturing a visual idea, like something like that, I love fashion, I do. I really do. I love to dress up, I love all that shit. Do I wanna do that shit because I have to? No! No, I don’t.” she said. She added, “But I feel pressured to do shit like that. I don’t fucking wanna do that. I wanna be home. … I wanna make music, I wanna play fucking video games.”
Doja Cat said in her recent interview that she’s going to start being more selective with who she works with in the future. She shared it with Extra TV during a conversation.
“I have been trying to be more careful about who I’m collaborating with,” she said. “Not to say that the people on my album are – they’re incredible. They are the perfect features on my album,” she added. “But I do want to be more choosy about what I’m doing because I feel like a lot of features are coming out. It feels like people are just getting on each other’s songs for the sake of having them on each other’s songs.” She continued.
Even after intense pressure in her career, she has made a remarkable position for herself in the music industry. In the last couple of years, she even surpassed Drake with the most monthly Spotify listeners in October. At the AMA this month, she picked up the Favorite R&B Album, Favorite Female R&B Artist, and Collaboration of the Year awards.
