Talk about a viral sensation! 22-year-old LA-Based artist Doja Cat dropped a video for her song “MOOO!” last week.
This week, it became the most talked about music video of the summer.
One word… iconic. The song itself references a ton of classic tracks, like Wu-Tang Clan’s ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ and Kelis ‘Milkshake’, to even Ludacris ‘Move! (Get Out The Way)’.
“I got this costume for an upcoming tour that I’m about to go on in September”, she explains to the Fader. “I cheat sometimes and I like to wear my costumes beforehand on Live when I make music. I had this top from the costume on and didn’t know what to sing about, but the shirt was so ridiculous that I was like, “Maybe that would be cool if I just made a song about cows.” I thought “Nobody’s gonna care about it.” It’s just funny. It sounded kind of cute. I came up with some mooing harmonies.”
Chance the Rapper approved of the new bovine banger, tweeting, “So now im a big doja cat fan,”

“After making the song I was craving a cheeseburger so I ordered delivery and it made it to my house in time for filming,” she added. “That’s why I’m eating and drinking a strawberry milkshake throughout the video. The whole process of making the video took about five hours max. The song took about six.”

Doja Cat is actually VERY talented. She produces her own music even. Don’t let that Moo song don’t think baby girl is playing
