Doja Cat has long talked about how she's been heavily inspired by Nicki Minaj. When she announced a surprise guest on the Hot Pink
cut "Like That," many fans were surprised it turned out to be Gucci Mane and not the Queens rapper.
"People thought the surprise feature was going to be Nicki, because I blurred the name out at first - and, well, the album is titled Hot Pink
," she told Billboard
. "Also, I'm just a huge fan of Nicki. I blurred out the name, but it wasn't necessarily to create a sense of anticipation specifically around the feature."
A few months later, Doja's fans got their wish when Minaj jumped on the remix for "Say So," marking the first collaboration among the two artists.
