In support of her 2019 sophomore LP Hot Pink, Doja Cat is hitting the road. The “Juicy” rapper announced her forthcoming Hot Pink Tour on Instagram.
“Going on tour,” she wrote on Monday (Feb. 24). “Tickets on sale Friday at 10am.”
The two-month trek will include 15 stops between Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Philadelphia, Boston, Nashville, Atlanta, Dallas, San Francisco and more. Doja will also hit up Coachella for two weekends in April. She will be supported by Big Klit and singer Ashnikko.
Hot Pink wrapped up a breakout year for Doja, after tipping from success over viral singles. Within the year, she released a deluxe version of her debut album Amala, which included her Tyga-assisted hit single “Juicy.” Besides her tour announcement, she’s kept her momentum rolling into the new year with the Jax Jones-collaborated “Say So” and contributed to the Birds Of Prey The Album soundtrack with “Boss Bitch.”
Upon the release of her sophomore LP, the Los Angeles native spoke with Elle about wanting to make the rap genre more “colorful.”
“It’s the perfect time for people to be colorful and animated,” she told the outlet. “We need people who are open to doing something with theme, something with a cartoonish twist. [Rap] is very one dimensional right now.”
She also spoke about her signature flow and drawing inspiration from the likes of Busta Rhymes.
“I really pull from everyone. I’m absorbent. I’m not saying I’m even half as talented or a quarter as talented as any of the people I’m inspired by, but if I hear a beat Busta Rhymes would absolutely kill, I’ll use my voice to do a flow similar to his,” she said, describing her sound as “very sexually driven, very tongue in cheek. Sort of soft but also really, really aggressive in some aspects, and really fun.”
Tickets for Doja’s tour go on sale on Friday (Feb. 28) at 10 a.m. EST. See all of the dates in her post below.
