Doja Cat, the 27-year-old Grammy-winning singer and rapper, has taken to Twitter to inform her fans that she is no longer interested in making pop music. In a tweet over the weekend, the artist wrote, “No more pop,” and added, “I also agree with everyone who said the majority of my rap verses are mid and corny. 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.”
Doja Cat has previously combined pop and rap to great success, with hit singles such as “Say So,” “Freaky Deaky,” and “Woman” that performed well on the charts. In 2021, she even became the first rapper to have three top 10 hits in the US Top 40. However, it appears that the “Vegas” rapper is now taking a decisive step towards the rap genre.
