Back in June, Doja Cat dropped off her third studio LP Planet Her, which initially contained 14 tracks with additional features from Young Thug, Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, JID, and SZA — a couple of days later, she would unveil a deluxe edition of the project with five additional songs and added collaborations alongside Eve and Gunna. To no one’s surprise, Planet Her quickly became Doja Cat‘s most commercially successful album to date, landing her at the number two spot on the Billboard 200 thanks to 109,000 album equivalent units sold during the first week of its release. While it’s yet to score a plaque in the United States, it’s already earned Doja several Platinum and Gold certifications in other countries around the world, solidifying her position as a bonafide international superstar.
Yesterday (Dec. 4), Doja Cat unveils a new visual from Planet Her for the Aynzli Jones, Crate Classics, Linden Jay, and Yeti Beats-produced opener “Woman,” an Afrobeats-inspired ode to women and why they’re truly the most important in regards to society and the world as a whole:
“What you need? She give tenfold, come here, papa, plant your seed, she can grow it from her womb, a family, provide lovin’ overlooked and unappreciated, you see, you can reciprocate, I got delicious taste, you need a woman’s touch in your place, just protect her and keep her safe, baby, worship my hips and waist, so feminine with grace, I touch your soul when you hear me say, ‘Boy,’ let me be your woman…”
The accompanying clip for “Woman” comes courtesy of child. and begins with an orderly telling a queen — played by Teyana Taylor — that her throne is in jeopardy. Following a titillating exchange between Doja and Taylor, much of the video sees the “Say So” talent engaging in some absolutely breathtaking poses and joining a group of women for some choreographed dancing.
