Doja Cat’s long-awaited music has arrived, delighting fans who have been eagerly anticipating its release. The announcement, made through her Twitter account, was accompanied by eye-catching cover art featuring a chaotic, blood-streaked triangle. Naturally, fans have been offering their own interpretations of the intriguing imagery. Adding to the excitement, Doja Cat revealed that the single, titled “Attention,” would be available on June 16.
Speculation about the project’s nature has been rampant, with theories ranging from a lead single for her upcoming album to the possibility of a surprise full album release.

However, it has now been confirmed that “Attention” is indeed a standalone single.
Doja Wants Attention, But The Right Kind
For those who thought Doja Cat’s collaboration with SZA on “Kill Bill” hinted at a musical shift, they were partially correct. While the new single showcases a different sound, it still retains the essence of Doja Cat’s signature style. Doja herself has teased the music’s divergence, leading many to anticipate something completely unexpected. However, “Attention” stays true to Doja Cat’s artistic identity.
Sleek, sexy, and dreamy, “Attention” explores the perils of being in the public eye. Doja Cat confronts the attention she has garnered over the past year, expressing frustration that people seem more interested in superficial matters than the music itself. This sentiment has been a recurring theme in her recent online rants.
If this frustration is what sparked her new musical direction, perhaps more artists should channel their anger. Doja Cat shines on the track, effortlessly weaving her flow around sampled drums and ethereal harps. “Now I feel like I can see you btches is depressed,” she raps confidently. “I am not afraid to finally say sht with my chest.”
