Pop star was among performers at annual event
Doja Cat is prepping to release a genre-bending remix of “Alone.” The pop star shared the news over the weekend at Audacy’s 8th Annual We Can Survive.
“I feel like I should keep it a surprise… I remixed ‘Alone’ in a way. I changed the genre of it,” Doja Cat shares during a backstage interview with Audacy’s Julia & Bru on Saturday (Oct 23rd). “I guess I don’t have to tell anybody what style it is. I did that the other day, it’s nice. We’re working on it.”
The singer also says “doja cat” has no meaning.
“I used to smoke a lot of weed. And I like cats. And that’s what happens when you give a 16-year-old the freedom to come up with a name.”
Coldplay, Maroon 5, Black Eyed Peas, Shawn Mendes, The Kid LAROI, Saweetie and Young in a Million all performed at the event at the Hollywood Bowl. The concert raised over $800,000 for American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), the nation’s largest suicide prevention organization that gives those affected by suicide a nationwide community empowered by research, education and advocacy to take action against this leading cause of death.
The show continued Audacy’s commitment to normalizing conversations about mental health and suicide prevention coupled with its annual I’m Listening special, a live national broadcast that brings together artists, athletes, medical specialists and others with intimate conversations about mental health through authentic, open dialogue led by some of the nation’s top influencers.
