Doja Cat is not any stranger to controversy. Final month, her social media posts relating to her followers proved polarizing. However maybe the ruffled feathers are one thing she lives for. On her new single, “Paint The City Crimson,” Doja seemingly alludes to the emotional penalties of the superstardom she’s achieved in recent times.
Over a jazz-influenced, Dionne Warwick beat, Doja addresses every little thing — fame, opulence, and pop-star standing.
“Yeah, b*tch, I stated what I stated / I’d somewhat be well-known as an alternative / I let all that get to my head / I don’t care, I paint the city pink,” she raps on the tune’s refrain.
Elsewhere on the tune, she seemingly alludes to the incident through which she stated she didn’t love her fans, rapping, “Followers ain’t dumb however extremists are / I’m a demon, Lord / Fall off what? I ain’t seen a horse.” Nevertheless, the title “Paint The City Crimson” first appeared on an alleged tracklist Doja shared again in April, so it’s possible the tune was written and recorded a very long time in the past.
Maybe her anti-fan tirade was a part of the tune’s promotional marketing campaign?
Who is aware of? However this new period of Doja sounds promising. Whether or not she desires it to or not.
Within the tune’s accompanying video, she channels the satan she’s consistently made out to be, conquers demons — each internally and inside the video’s universe — and lays down the regulation of the land.
