Songfacts®:

  • Here, Doja Cat tells her love interest how to act with her. He's already earning brownie points by taking her out "dining on nothing but the best" and looking good in his off-white apparel, but Doja encourages to him keep doing it, promising she'll repay him.
  • When Doja Cat first announced the track list for Hot Pink, she blurred out the featured artist on "Like That." Many fans speculated it would be Nicki Minaj because of the album title and were surprised when the guest turned out to be Gucci Mane.
  • During his verse, Gucci Mane compares his lovemaking technique to Elvis Presley's iconic use of his hips while dancing.

    Shakin' like Elvis, damn near broke my pelvis
  • Though Doja's label originally earmarked the song to be serviced to radio in May 2020, it entered the charts before its release thanks to its popularity on TikTok.
  • Dr. Luke produced the track along with Mike Crook. Once an in-demand producer known for working with the likes of Kelly Clarkson ("My Life Would Suck Without You") and Katy Perry ("E.T."), Luke's career was derailed after Kesha accused him of physical, verbal and sexual abuse. Her lawsuits against the producer were dismissed, and he made a commercial resurgence thanks to his work with Doja Cat (Luke produced five Hot Pink tracks including her #1 hit, "Say So").
  • Backed by masked dancers (a nod to coronavirus quarantine) Doja Cat performed this song and "Say So" at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2020. She took the trophy for Best New Artist at the ceremony.
