After teasing fans for months, Doja Cat finally released her fourth studio album, Scarlet, today (Sept. 22).
The project was preceded by multiple singles, including “Attention,” which peaked at No. 31 on the Billboard Hot 100 and earned six MTV Video Music Awards nominations. Meanwhile, “Paint The Town Red” debuted in August and landed a No. 1 position on the chart.
In the lead-up to the album’s release, life-sized mannequins resembling the Los Angeles rapper appeared in major cities as a promotional tactic. It also experienced a behind-the-scenes hiccup when Doja decided to change the cover art at the last minute due to its resemblance to another band’s artwork.
Moreover, the musician will be supporting the LP with “The Scarlet Tour,” which is set to begin on Halloween at San Francisco’s Chase Center. The 24-date tour will conclude on Dec. 13 at Chicago’s United Center. Ice Spice and Doechii were also announced as opening acts.
