Doja Cat says she will be more selective when picking features

Doja Cat has been discussing her future work and admitted that she’s decided to be more selective when picking artists to link up with on upcoming releases.

On her last album, Planet Her, Doja enlisted help from The Weeknd, Ariana Grande, Young Thug and JID. However, the 25-year-old made it clear that it’s not necessarily the musicians appearing on her projects that she needs to reconsider, but the features she jumps on instead.

“I have been trying to be more careful about who I’m collaborating with,” she said in a conversation with ExtraTV. “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.”

“I want to be really careful about that,” she continued. “Sometimes it’s too much collabs and remixes and things like that.”

Earlier this month, Nicki Minaj has revealed that she almost collaborated on Doja’s hit song, ‘Get Into It (Yuh)’. The rapper made the revelation during a conversation she had with fans on Twitter Spaces, where she explained the reason for her absence being that she “could bring anything to it”.

“It’s just that there were, like, middle people involved in that situation,” she noted. “If it was like how me and BIA were direct and we dealt with each other directly, it would be different,” she said, referring to her remix of BIA’s ‘Whole Lotta Money’.

“But I didn’t love that song because I didn’t think I could bring anything to it. So I asked them to send me something else. I think that was the second song they sent me, I asked them to send me something else and they didn’t send me anything else.”
