It’s barely been two months since Doja Cat‘s third studio album, ‘Planet Her,’ was launched to digital music outlets, but in that time it’s managed to become one of the top-performing projects of the year.
Marking a career high for the rapstress upon its #2 debut (as we reported here), the set’s fende off new contenders in the time since its Billboard 200 landing to maintain placement in the tally’s top 5.
Now, thanks to sustained sales and streaming, ‘Planet’ may be planted atop the chart’s next iteration if industry analyst reports are to be believed.
According to HDD, three of music’s leading ladies – Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, and Doja – are in a tight race for the Billboard 200 championship. And while Rodrigo’s ‘Sour’ has the slight edge due to the release of its vinyl edition (as of time reported), the publication acknowledges the rest of the tracking week could still see the LP outpaced by Eilish’s ‘Happer Than Ever’ or Doja.
If the prediction comes true, it will mark her first chart-topper.
While the rapper’s fans – affectionately called #Kittens – celebrate the potential win, the updated Hot 100 reveals the GRAMMY nominee already has great news on her hand.
As if occupying the Hot 100’s #4 and #16 spots with her hits ‘Kiss Me More’ and ‘You Right’ respectively isn’t enough to trumpet, the ‘Planet Her’ track, ‘Need to Know,’ has pounced to to #20 – marking her 7th career entry into the chart region.
