Which Grammy Awards Is ‘Say So’ Singer Doja Cat Nominated for?
Few musical artists are impacting the music industry in 2020 like Doja Cat. The singer/rapper — whose real name is Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini — landed a record deal as a teen. But the now-25-year-old has come a long way since then. Doja Cat is up for a few categories at the 2021 Grammy Awards. But which trophies is she nominated for at this year’s ceremony?
Doja Cat’s ‘Say So’ became one of 2020’s biggest hit single
Doja Cat released her first EP, titled Purrr!, in 2014. But it’s taken a few years for her to build up to her breakthrough release. Her first studio album, Amala, hit in 2018 but was a commercial disappointment. The singer has since basically disowned the album, although it did spawn hit singles “Candy” and “Mooo!” But she got another chance to make a first impression the following year.
2019 brought Doja Cat’s follow-up Hot Pink. And far from a sophomore slump, the album has put the singer on the map in a big, bad way. Tracks like “Juicy” and “Like That” have made the charts. But without a doubt, her instantly classic “Say So” has been among the biggest hits of the year. A number one smash, the song caught the attention of listeners as well as the Grammy Awards.
What is the singer’s net worth?
Although she was still a rising star just two years ago, the singer has become a major part of the current music scene. The singer’s net worth has naturally risen with her stardom. And now, barely a year after “Say So” hit the airwaves, Doja Cat is worth roughly $4 million. That’s a hefty sum for a star whose years of effort finally came to fruition all at once.
Doja Cat does have music in her blood, however. Her father is Dumisani Dlamini, a composer in his own right. So perhaps her success in the industry was inevitable. Still, the singer’s meteoric rise in the business is among the biggest success stories of the year. It stands to reason the Grammy Awards would choose to recognize her achievement.
How many Grammys does Doja Cat have?
So far, Doja Cat doesn’t have any Grammy Awards to her name. But the ceremony is clearly considering Hot Pink her mainstream debut. After all, Best New Artist is among her three nominations at the 2021 Grammy Awards. In that category, she faces a ton of competition, including stars such as Noah Cyrus, Phoebe Bridgers, and Megan Thee Stallion.
Doja Cat’s other nominations are for Best Pop Vocal Performance and Record of the Year, both for “Say So.” The latter category, of course, is among the biggest awards of the night. So fans will have to tune in on March 14 to see whether the singer can triumph over Beyoncé, Black Pumas, DaBaby, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Post Malone, and Megan Thee Stallion.
