BUILDING HER OWN EMPIRE IN THE MUSIC PLATFORM:
Doja cat spent years building her music career without reaching mainstream success. She first started releasing music on Soundcloud in 2013 dropping her debut singles so high. A psychedelic R&B song that got a decent amount of attention Spotify with around 30 million plays on Spotify in 2020. From there she was signed to RCA. just a few months later releasing her debut EP deeper in the summer of 2014.
More than four years before the release of mood and the start of her mainstream career. looking back, it’s difficult to find coverage or reviews of or anywhere. It’s not that it wasn’t good but journalists weren’t jumping to praise it either. And there wouldn’t be another major Doja cat release until 2018 when she started rolling out her debut album- AMALA. It is an energetic album nest which is definitely between moody Rab and high ten hip-hop. But it too failed to make a big impact in the industry he peaked at the number 138 on the billboard, 200 with no real hit singles or videos. But everything changed in august of 2018, just a year and half ago. When Doja cat spontaneously released Moo on you Tube, the song is for all intents and purpose a ship post. But it completely transformed her struggling career. She also stated in an interview that “I feel really lucky that this song has created a platform for my debut because that wasn’t the intention behind the song. My last album actually got no support. There is nobody trying to push it. Now KATY PERRY is tweeting me which is cool.
HOW SOCIALLY SHE GOT FAMOUS:
Now on looking on the Doja cat’s Instagram on august 18 2018 just a week after she dropped to mu when she had around 250000 followers. She was getting around 10 to 20000 likes per post. After a year and half she has around 4 million followers on Instagram. Now presently, she has around 10.9 million followers which a quite large number of followers she has.
Hundreds of millions of streams and she’s touring he world and none of that would have been possible without a 4-minute video of her rapping about cows in front of a green screen.
