Hot 100: Doja Cat Captures Her Highest Solo Debut & Fifth Consecutive Top 40 Hit with ‘Need to Know’

Published: Thursday 24th Jun 2021 by Rashad

Doja Cat is sitting on top of the world!

As buzz reaches a feverish pitch for the release of her third studio album, ‘Planet Her’ (due to June 25), the GRAMMY-nominated rapper-singer already has much to celebrate thanks to the success of its lead singles ‘Kiss Me More’ and ‘Need to Know.’

Details inside:

On the wings of its Miles Cable & AJ Favicchio-directed music video (seen above), the June 11-released ‘Need to Know’ hit the charts running with an impressive #38 premiere on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.

The entry not only marks the 7th time she’s visited the chart territory over her short career, but it’s her fifth consecutive trip inside the top 40 and follows previous hits ‘Best Friend,’ ’34+35 (Remix),’ ‘Streets,’ and ‘Kiss Me More.’

Speaking of the latter, the SZA-assisted tune jumped to #4 on this week’s Hot 100 – boasting its highest mark yet and the second-highest rung Doja’s reached on the tally as a leader in her career (following the 2020 #1 hit ‘Say So’).

Fun fact: The #38 arrival of ‘Need to Know’ is her highest solo/unassisted debut to date.  Among all Doja-led songs (including features), it follows the #7 premiere of ‘Kiss.’

    It’s weird that you say short career … she’s been making music for over a decade now.
