Wanna know what it’s like? If you’re referring to the genre of Doja Cat’s fourth album, you’re out of luck because she appears to be keeping that information on a strictly need-to-know basis right now. Doja revealed last month that the project will be titled Hellmouth. This past weekend, she also took to Twitter to tease three song titles — “Wet Vagina,” “Balut,” and “Agora Hills” — and announced that the full project will have “10 tracks total +5 extras.” But what seemed to be a pretty standard rollout transformed into something a bit more chaotic after Doja tweeted that the album would be “rap only.” “i also agree with everyone who said the majority of my rap verses are mid and corny,” she added. “I know they are. I wasnt trying to prove anything I just enjoy making music but I’m getting tired of hearing yall say that i can’t so I will.”

Just as people were beginning to mourn Doja’s pop career, the singer andprofessional troller began tweeting a series of additional album updates. First, she joked that her album had a new title: Moist Holes. Then she declared she was quitting music (and took it back) three times. She also kept announcing that the album’s genre had changed, telling fans that the new sound was everything from “rock/spoken word” to “french conceptual experimental country/bohemian fusion with the essence of blue-grass.” Maybe Doja will eventually circle back and confirm she’s putting out a rap album called Hellmouth, but as of publication time, her two most recent tweets simply say “album” and “album?” Relive the (t)rollout below.
