Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini[3] (born October 21, 1995),[4] known by her stage name Doja Cat, is an American rapper, singer-songwriter and record producer.[5] She has written many songs. These include "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] There was a hiatus from commercial music and the uneventful release of Doja Cat's first studio album, Amala (2018). After that, Doja Cat earned viral success as an internet meme with her 2018 single "Mooo!", a novelty song where 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 after the release of a remix featuring Nicki Minaj. Hot Pink was followed by Planet Her (2021), which spent three.

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