Doja Cat is a rising star in the Hip Hop and R&B genre of music. Even though she started way back in 2014, it wasn’t till 2018 that she went viral. Not that Doja is a famous name, she is showing no sign of stopping.
As of 2024, Doja Cat has a net worth of an estimated around $4 million, as per Celebrity Net Worth report. Most of her income comes from music sales and live shows.
The singer started music on SoundCloud where her single “So High” caught the attention of an RCA records official and got her signed. Starting from there, Doja started climbing the music industry ladder and released her debut EP Purrr!.
After taking a few years of hiatus from music, Doja came back in 2018 with the album Amala. It charted at 138th position on the Billboard 200. The single “Candy” made the Billboard Hot 100 chart at 86th position.
Doja’s experimental single “Mooo!” was a groundbreaking success. Following the success of a few more singles, she released her second album Hot Pink. It opened at number 9 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album sold over 500K album-equivalent units in the US. Also, it was gold certified by the British Phonographic Industry.
In January of 2024, Doja came up with her third album Planet Her and got nominated for three Grammy Awards at the 63rd Grammy ceremony. Even though she missed by a narrow margin, TIme’s 100 Next list gave her a place following her success. The album garnered more than 27 million views and made her the first female rapper to have 113M+ streams on Spotify within a week.
Doja Cat was born in LA, California on October 21, 1995. Born to a painter mother and actor father, the singer grew up in an artistic environment. Living in an ashram in Agoura Hills, Doja and her family practiced deep Hinduism for a period. At this time, our singer trained in an Indian classical dance form named Bharatnatyam.
She has been taking singing lessons from the age of 11 and very soon became more interested in art than anything else. As a result, Doja dropped out of school and went full-time on music.
Doja Cat has been a subject of controversy more than once. She has been accused of using slurs regarding homosexuality, insensitivity towards Covid-19 and joining public gatherings, and some sort of mild racial slurs.
It is important to understand the singer’s extreme personality and eccentric sense of humor, but it is also necessary to have some control over sensitive topics that affect people emotionally.
Doja bought her first home for a whopping $2.2 million in Beverly Hills, California.
