Doja Cat is one of the most eccentric yet catchiest artists in all of pop music. While fans probably can’t imagine it, Doja Cat was all set to be featured on Billie Eilish’s “Bellyache,” which is a hit from her 2017 EP, Don’t Smile At Me.
Billie Eilish & Doja Cat collaborating is a huge deal, and if it happens in this day and age, fans would lose their mind. Cat’s featurette on the song was a done deal, but she explained that a writer’s block struck her at the wrong time and stopped her from meeting her end of the bargain.
Rolling Stone featured Doja Cat in an exclusive video. While the piece features 11 facts about the artist, the fact that she hit a writer’s block right when she had the chance to collaborate with Billie Eilish probably takes the cake.
I remember thinking it was so cute. I loved it. I just couldn’t think of anything to write. It was one of my writer’s-block moments. … And I remember seeing that song blow up and thinking, ‘Good for her. That’s awesome.’ I don’t think the song was for me, though. It was quite hard to write to.
Doja Cat further explained that she loved the song, but she had the writer’s block. She added that the song was not for her, and it was hard for her to come up with the right lyrics for it.
Eilish’s song was not as successful, as one might have hoped. However, that was relatively early on in the artist’s career. Perhaps a collaboration with Doja Cat would have taken it a long way, but seeing the success of Billie Eilish, she’s just fine on her own.
