Doja Cat says she collaborated with Smino and J.I.D to help them grow their platform.
“I care about rap, I do,” she said in a new interview with Apple Music’s Ebro Darden. “I feel like with Hot Pink, I put Smino on there because I know he’s out of this world talented. Putting J.I.D on this album, was the same thing. I feel like these rappers need a platform — they need to be shown to the world more and if I can do that, I’m gonna do it.”

Doja isn’t wrong about her platform. Planet Her is expected to sell 100,000 total album-equivalent units and debut on the Billboard 200 at the No. 2 spot, behind Tyler, The Creator‘s Call Me If You Get Lost.
