Everybody knew that Doja Cat’s brand new album ‘Planet Her’ was on the way. But now, we have an official release date. Doja Cat released the full tracklist and the release date of the album with only two weeks of preparation for her fans.
‘Planet Her’ is Doja Cat’s third studio album following ‘Amala’ and ‘Hot Pink’ albums in 2018 and 2019 respectively. ‘Hot Pink’ album went Gold in the US and Australia. However, ‘Planet Her’ is expected to her most successful album yet.
One reason for the projected success of the album is the success of the lead single “Kiss Me More” featuring SZA. The single reached #5 in the US and #3 in the UK, and #1 in Singapore and New Zealand. The second single off the album titled “You Right” was announced but remains unreleased as of now.
Instead, Doja Cat announced the release of the “Need to Know” promotional track and music video releasing on June 11, 2021.

Doja Cat ‘Planet Her’ Album Review
We are going to go on a limb and say that ‘Planet Her’ is all about Doja Cat. It’s her planet and we are taking a trip through her extraterrestial lifestyle through this album. Supporting evidence for this theory is the music video for “Kiss Me More,” where both Doja and SZA are some massive and powerful beings from a strange planet.
In an interview with Audacy, Doja Cat explained the ‘lore’ behind her new album;
“so basically ‘Planet Her’ is the center of the universe, and it’s where all races of space exist and its where all species can kind of be in harmony there. That’s kind of the lore.”
She also explained that the name ‘Planet Her’ did not have any feminist POV, rather she was “just trying to be cute. It’s not a planet for women.”
