Hot Pink is the second studio album by American rapper and singer Doja Cat. It was released on November 7, 2019, by Kemosabe and RCA Records. A departure from the dancehall sound of her debut album Amala (2018), Hot Pink mainly has a funk and R&B feel to it. It was written by Doja Cat alongside other songwriters and producers, with production from Yeti Beats and Dr. Luke (under the pseudonym Tyson Trax). Guest appearances are made on Hot Pink by Smino, Tyga, and Gucci Mane.
