The eight accounts in question belong to SZA, French Montana, Megan Thee Stallion, Ariana Grande, Saweetie, A$AP Ferg, Young Thug, and The Weeknd. It’s possible that Doja’s tweet is meant to tease the features on her album.The Recording Process
“I’m always kind of winging it,” she told MTV about her recording process back in August. “But I have my album coming. I can’t say when. But that’s pretty much it. I really want to make it a surprise. I don’t want to say too much. It’s very similar to Hot Pink in the sense that each of the songs do have their own personality to them, and sound. It’s not gonna be perfectly consistent. I’ve never been anyway. But I definitely wanted to kind of have fun and just do that again.”
During the interview, Doja broke down some of the genre inspirations. “We have some dancehall stuff on there, and some afrobeats stuff. We have some funk, house kinda stuff,” she said. “I’m trying to cover all bases is what I’m saying. I’m having a lot of fun doing this album and I can’t wait for people to hear it and I think my fans are excited.”
