What happens when you take two powerful, badass artists and put them on one glamourous, 70’s inspired track? Absolute dynamite, that’s what.
Doja Cat’s smash hit, “Say So” once climbed the charts thanks to a viral TikTok dance challenge, and now Nicki Minaj has given the track her signature pink touch on a new remix.
The original version of the retro-inspired disco track came out as a single in 2019 but didn’t hit it big until TikTok skyrocketed it to fame. Doja Cat had millions of people around the world body rolling and punching to the song’s irresistibly catchy chorus, “Didn’t even notice, no punches left to roll with/You got to keep me focused, you want it, say so.” In the original music video, she paid homage to the viral dance and even featured a cameo from the teen choreographer/TikToker Haley Sharpe who launched the trendy movement.
In the new rendition of this already iconic summer bop, Nicki Minaj brings the heat with a couple spicy verses that remind us all why she’s still at the top of her game. “Every time I take a break, the game so boring/ Pretty like Naomi, Cassie, plus Lauren/Spittin’ like Weezy, Foxy, plus Lauryn,” the rapper proclaims––and honestly, we can’t disagree. Minaj’s sweet and salty rhymes perfectly pair with Doja’s upbeat, sassy vocals. We really couldn’t ask for a better collaboration in which each artist shows off just how dynamic and fun they can be. Give it a listen once and you’ll have these queens’ catchy hooks and melodies on repeat for the rest of summer!
