Doja Cat has faced criticism for working with Dr. Luke in the past, but now the singer has seemingly distanced herself from the producer.
In an extensive profile feature with Rolling Stone, Doja addressed her relationship with Dr. Luke, who was accused of sexual assault and abuse by Kesha shortly after Doja joined Luke’s RCA imprint Kemosabe Records. Dr. Luke is credited as both a songwriter and producer on a large number of Doja's output, including "Say So" and "Kiss Me More" with SZA.
Asked if she was on the same page as Saweetie, who said she wouldn’t work with Dr. Luke again, Doja replied, "That’s not a question I feel really comfortable answering." After a brief pause, she went into more detail and suggested she’s already reduced her ties to him somewhat.
"I haven’t worked with him in a very long time," she continued. "There’s shit that he’s credited for, where I’m like, 'Hmm, I don’t know, I don’t know if you did anything on that.'" Pressed for more, she implied that some of his credits on her tracks don’t make much sense to her.
"The point is he's gotten some credit for shit. And, you know, it's whatever. I don't think I need to work with him again. I don't think I need to work with him in the future. I know that," she said, later adding with a laugh, "I think it was definitely nice of me to work with him."
Some have speculated that Doja signed a contract with Dr. Luke prior to the allegations, leaving the singer lawfully unable to escape her relationship with the producer.
