Doja Cat has taken on Hiatus Kaiyote’s 2021 track ‘Red Room’ while appearing in the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. The singer does a fairly faithful rendition of the Melbourne future-soul/jazz purveyors’ original – appropriately bathed in bright red light – her voice gliding along the elastic bass (although there are some pitch issues later in the cover).
Doja Cat – real name Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini – also performed two tracks from her latest album Scarlet, including the viral hit ‘Paint The Town Red’ and ‘Agora Hills’. Watch all three tracks below.

Scarlet was released in late September, reaching #4 on the Billboard album charts and #5 on the ARIA charts in Australia. The rollout wasn’t without some controversy, with Doja Cat forced to redo the album cover after people noticed it was almost an exact copy of a new album from German band Chaver. The singer’s team quickly changed the cover.
Speaking of Hiatus Kaiyote, the band recently announced a one-off show at Melbourne’s Hamer Hall alongside the Dreamboat Orchestra. Nai Palm and co. will play a range of tracks from their three albums – 2012’s Tawk Tomahawk, 2015’s Choose Your Weapon, and 2021’s Mood Valiant – and have promised to preview some unreleased material.
