“I was just trolling, out of boredom, and then the memes were everywhere”
If you’re someone who keeps up with social media, and like most people, you don’t live underneath a rock (no offense, Patrick Star), then chances are you’ve heard the famous lyrics, “Bitch I’m a cow, Bitch I’m a cow. I’m not a cat, I don’t say meow”. Catchy, right? This fun song instantly went viral, within mere minutes. The song was so catchy in fact, that multiple unknown artists remixed it and placed it on Spotify before the actual artist could! With a song as trivial as Mooo, people started to question who the artist, (Doja Cat) actually was, and what she had to offer, while others wrote her off as a viral sensation.
Anyone who knows anything about Doja Cat knows that she has much mooore to offer than her recent viral hit. Doja Cat, known for her song So HighSo High, has been on the music scene for a while now, with many other musical accomplishments. The 22 year old, California native recently released her sophomore album in March with RCA Records.
When interviewed about the popularity of Mooo, Doja admittedly said that she never expected it to be such a BIG deal. “I was just trolling, out of boredom, and then the memes were everywhere.” If this is the offspring of boredom, then I wish many more hours of boredom upon this budding star. The video’s release couldn’t have come at a better time: right before her announcement of a 2018 tour! From what’s been seen so far, tickets are going pretty fast, and with good reason. Die-hard fans who’ve been supporting Doja since her SoundCloud days were no doubt the biggest reason for the tour’s high demand, but let’s not forget the new bandwagon fans, whose contribution and Mooo’s can be heard nationwide!
If you haven’t checked her albums, Purrr! and Amala out, then really, what are you doing with your life? You’re sitting on your couch, and your life is just passing you by (for my people old enough to remember those Everest College commercials). Seriously though, if you’re into the indie-R&B/neosoul vibe, give the albums a listen.
