Paint the Charts Red: Doja Cat Secures Hip-Hop’s First No. 1 Single Since Aug. 2022
It took 54 weeks, but Hip-Hop is officially back on top of the Billboard Hot 100. The last single to top the chart was Nicki Minaj’s “Super Freaky Girl.” The new Queen on top is Doja Cat with her single “Paint the Town Red.”
“Paint the Town Red” hit the top spot in its fifth week on the charts after a debut at No. 15. Tying the two rap queens together, Cat’s previous No. 1 single was “Say So,” which featured Nicki Minaj in 2020.
Doja Cat delighted her fans by releasing her new single and music video, “Paint The Town Red,” under Kemosabe Records / RCA Records. The visually stunning music video, directed by Nina McNeely in collaboration with Doja Cat, was shot in vibrant Los Angeles, CA. The video revolves around three captivating paintings designed by Doja Cat, with each scene beautifully reimagining the artwork.
Last month, Doja Cat showcased her artistic talents as she painted the single’s artwork during an interactive Instagram Live session, engaging with her fans while giving them a sneak peek of the upcoming song.
“Paint The Town Red” marks Doja Cat’s first official single since announcing her highly anticipated North American headline tour, The Scarlet Tour, set to kick off this fall. The tour promises to be exciting, with special guests Ice Spice and Doechii joining her on stage.
Earlier, Doja Cat treated her audience to the scorching track and video “Attention,” which received widespread critical acclaim. She also graced the cover of V Magazine, further cementing her status as a global music sensation. With “Paint The Town Red,” Doja Cat continues to captivate her fans and solidify her place as a multifaceted artist and visionary in the music industry.
