Doja Cat has (finally) announced the title of her forthcoming album; “First of All.” Fans previously believed the title of her upcoming project would be called “Hellmouth” following the change of her Twitter header name. The “Say So” singer has now set the records straight with an update she provided via her Twitter account.
On May 9, she tweeted, “its not called hEllMoUth either its called “First of All” and yes I’m announcing the album title right now.”

Before making the announcement, Doja referred to her last two projects “Hot Pink” and “Planet Her” as “cash grabs.” She went on to tweet, “yall fell for it. now i can go disappear somewhere and touch grass with my loved ones on an island while yall weep for mediocre pop.”
Doja has recently been in the limelight for a series of controversial reasons. There were the divisive fashion statements she made during Paris Fashion Week earlier this year; the viral 30,000 red Schaparelli pearls she wore on her skin for instance. As well as her 2023 Met Gala cat costume that immediately sparked conversation. Meanwhile, Doja has also been accused of devil worship. She’s also received criticism for tattoos some have called demonic. All in all, these incidents continue to keep her in name in the headlines and shift the perspective of how she is viewed as an artist.
As we anticipate her upcoming body of work, here is all you need to know about it:
More Rap, Less Pop
Doja has always fought to be recognized as a rapper instead of being kept strictly in the pop category. The musical artist intends to take a more rap-focused direction for “First Of All.” She’ll tap into her rap influences and create a work fully representative of her skill and ambitions as a rapper.
“First of All” Is Set To Release Later This Year
While an official release date is yet to be announced, “First of All” is speculated to be out later this year. The list of collaborators has also not been released yet.
A New Creative Era
From all indications, “First of All” will see Doja Cat enter a new, highly experimental era in her craft. Her recent antics online point to this possible change. As do her most recent creative decisions that have opted for dark, camp and edgy imagery over the light, airy aesthetics that once defined her craft,
