Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini[3] (born October 21, 1995),[4] Stage name Doja Cat, is an American rapper, singer and songwriter.[5] She has written many songs, including "Mooo!", which became an internet meme. Doja Cat's song "Say So" went viral on TikTok when a user of the site known as Haley Sharpe created a dance to the song.[6][7][8] After a hiatus from commercial music and the uneventful release 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. Her second studio album, Hot Pink (2019), reached the top 10 of the US Billboard 200. The album's single "Say So" was at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart after the release of a remix featuring Nicki Minaj. This album was followed by Planet Her (2021), which spent three.

She is also well-versed in the internet herself, and is famed for her absurdly humorous personality and online presence. She has received numerous accolades throughout her career, including a Billboard Music Award, two American Music Awards and three MTV Video Music Awards, among nominations for three Grammy Awards.
