Amala is the debut studio album by American rapper and singer Doja Cat. It was released on March 30, 2018, via Kemosabe and RCA Records. The album's deluxe version was released on March 1, 2019, and featured her breakthrough singles "Juicy", "Tia Tamera", and "Mooo!".[1] Doja Cat herself has expressed a strong dislike towards the album, claiming that it doesn't entirely represent her as an artist.[2] Doja Cat believes that Amala isn't a "finished album", partially due to her constantly partying and taking marijuana during recording the album.[3][4]

A lot of people liked Amala, and that's great. However, I don't think it was a finished album. I was smoking hella weed. I was high all the fucking time and it wasn't even helping me perceive what was going on musically. I was just really out there partying and it was a crazy time for me.
