Doja Cat has released a new tune named ‘Vegas,’ which is taken from Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Elvis biopic soundtrack.
Doja’s new single, which was released on 6th May, reinvents the well-known song, which was first performed by blues musician Big Mama Thornton in 1952 and famously covered by Elvis Presley four years later. The rapper incorporates Thornton’s vocal samples into her cover, as well as her own blazing bars and a cutting trap rhythm.
Look it up below.
Doja debuted the song at Coachella last month before announcing it as her contribution to the Elvis soundtrack, which will be released this summer by RCA. On the soundtrack, Kacey Musgraves will perform a cover of Elvis Presley’s ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love With You.’
Tom Hanks, Olivia DeJonge, Austin Butler, Dacre Montgomery, Maggie Gyllenhaal and others star in the film, which hits theatres on 24th June. Check out the trailer below.
‘Vegas’ is the first new track from Doja since February, when she collaborated with Tyga on his tune ‘Freaky Deaky.’ Post Malone has since revealed clips of himself and Doja working on new music, which will be featured on his upcoming album ‘Twelve Carat Toothache.’
Last year, Doja released her third studio album, ‘Planet Her.’ ‘Get Into It (Yuh)’, ‘You Right’ with The Weeknd, and ‘Kiss Me More’ with SZA were among the tracks featured. She won a Grammy for the latter collaboration in the Best Pop/Group Performance category at this year’s ceremony.
