Doja Cat Collects Her Second Career Top 40 Hit Thanks to Ariana Grande’s ‘Motive’
2020 has proven itself to be the breakout year for Doja Cat. From blazing the stages some of the year’s top award shows to rocking radio by her lonesome and as a featured artist.
Yet, for all her growing popularity (which includes three Platinum singles as of time reported), many would be surprised to learn the 25-year-old only boasted one top 40 hit to her credit – the #1 hit ‘Say So’ – before this week.
Thanks to Ariana Grande, the count has increased.
Every song from Grande’s sixth studio album, ‘Positions,’ impacted the Hot 100 this week. The second highest debut among those LP cuts was the #32 arrival of ‘Motive,’ the GRAMMY winner’s duet with Doja.
Its inaugural appearance not only marks the rapper’s highest premiere placement to date (besting her previous chart triumph with Bebe Rexha), but also marks her first top 40 debut (second career top 40 hit overall).
