On this #1 peaking hit, Doja Cat enlists the help of veteran rapper Nicki Minaj. The official remix was teased on Twitter by Doja Cat prior to its official release on May 1, 2020. This highly anticipated remix marks the first collaboration between the two artists.
On the remix, Nicki adds a new verse on a fresh new beat not present on the original. She shouts out her fellow peers, emphasizes her status as a legend within hip-hop, and even makes references to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent quarantine. Doja’s original second verse is kept intact, while Nicki provides singing vocals and a few bars for the outro.
Two versions of the remix exist, with the older version having an entirely different first verse by Nicki. Doja addressed this on Twitter, saying the proper current version would replace the older versions after its release.
