American rapper, singer, and songwriter Doja Cat has released her new song, “Too Fast,” which features Moroccan-American rapper French Montana.
Born October 21, 1995, Doja Cat began making and releasing music on SoundCloud as a teenager.
Doja Cat’s song “So High” caught the attention of Kemosabe and RCA Records, with which she signed a joint record deal at the age of 17, subsequently releasing her debut EP Purrr! in 2014.
After a hiatus from releasing music and the uneventful rollout of her debut studio album, Amala (2018), Doja Cat earned viral success as an internet meme with her 2018 single “Mooo!”, a novelty song in which she fantasizes about being a cow.
Capitalizing on her growing popularity, her second studio album, Hot Pink (2019), reached the top 10 of the US Billboard 200 and spawned the single “Say So”, which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart following the release of a remix featuring Nicki Minaj.
Doja Cat was featured on the song “Scoop” from Lil Nas X’s debut studio album Montero (2021), which was released on September 17, and then on the song “Icy Hot” from American rapper Young Thug’s second studio album Punk (2021), which was released on October 15.
That same month, Doja Cat reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 Songwriters chart for the first time in her career, and also became the first rapper to place three top 10 songs on the US Top 40 radio chart, with “You Right”, “Need to Know” and “Kiss Me More”.
Doja Cat closed 2021 as the bestselling female R&B and hip-hop artist in the US, and the forth bestselling female artist overall, additionally placing six songs on the year-end Hot 100.
In 2022, Doja Cat won the awards for Female Rapper of the Year and Performer of the Year at the 2022 XXL Awards.
