Doja Cat covers the April 24, 2021 issue of Billboard Magazine, and she shared new details about her highly-anticipated third album Planet Her in an accompanying interview with journalist Meaghan Garvey:

• Planet Her, due out this summer, "tones down the genre-hopping experimentation" of its predecessor, 2019's Hot Pink, while still serving as a showcase for Doja's artistic versatility

• The album's forthcoming second single, "You Right," features guest vocals by The Weeknd. An additional song named in the article, "Need to Know," features the line "I heard from a friend that dick is a 10 out of 10!"

• Doja feels that Planet Her is her first project that feels fully individualistic, explaining, "I think in the beginning, I was just trying to be solid and be what a pop artist already was: what I'd seen on TV and what I thought was the right thing to do... I want to introduce things to people as opposed to just re-create and rehash. It’s just more inspiring to start from a more innovative spot."

• Doja and her creative director, Brett Alan Nelson, approached the album's futuristic aesthetic carefully, in an effort to avoid retreading ground covered by Lady Gaga (with Chromatica) and Beyoncé, whose Sasha Fierce era featured iconic, robotic pieces by Thierry Mugler

With a string of chart-scaling singles and showstopping performances, @DojaCat didn’t just ride out the pandemic -- she proved an internet weirdo can become a pop star.
