Doja Cat to command the Atlantis stage

Superstar’s exclusive outdoor concert set for New Year’s Day

Atlantis has snagged the artist known for “cooking up” colorful and candy-coated beats, dropping bars doubled-up on double entendre, and singing with claws out for an exclusive outdoor concert event on New Year’s Day at the resort’s Royal Deck overlooking Paradise Beach.

Three-time Grammy nominee Doja Cat’s performance, scheduled for January 1, 2022 at 9:30 p.m., is part of the resort’s acclaimed entertainment series, Atlantis LIVE.

Doja Cat’s unapologetic charisma, charm and confidence will be taking center stage on “her planet” and you are invited to embark on what is expected to be a thrilling ride with an electrifying performance from the singer, songwriter, and producer.

Also scheduled to perform during the festive season on New Year’s Eve, at the Royal Deck at 9:30 p.m., will be guest DJ Tony Okungbowa, The Modern Gentlemen – a pop group; and Bond Quartet – the original electric string quartet.

Doja Cat made her first upload to Soundcloud in 2013 at just 16 years old. Having grown up in and around the Los Angeles (L.A.) area, she developed a knack for music by studying piano and dance as a kid and listening to the likes of Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and more. Soon, she went from obsessing over “Catwoman” (the Halle Berry version) to crate digging on YouTube. The budding talent taught herself Logic and how to compose on a midi controller. Signed to Kemosabe/RCA in 2014, she released her “Purrr! EP” and followed that with her debut album “Amala” in spring 2018, but it was her August 2018 release of “Mooo!” which catapulted her into the mainstream and was met with critical acclaim.

Doja Cat released her sophomore album “Hot Pink” in November 2019 to mass critical acclaim. The album was a platinum success with over 14.5 billion streams worldwide. “Hot Pink” features “Juicy” which hit number one at Rhythm radio; “Say So”, her Grammy nominated number one smash record and “Streets”, the viral sensation that soundtracked the “Silhouette Challenge” – one of the biggest TikTok trends to date.

The success of “Say So” which hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and has been RIAA certified four-times platinum and streamed over 6.7 billion times catapulted Doja into global superstardom. She has taken home the Best New Artist Award at the MTV VMAs, the MTV EMAs, the AMAs (where she also won the Best Female Soul/R&B Artist Award) and the iHeart Radio Awards. She has been nominated for countless awards including three Grammy Awards, nine MTV VMA Awards, five Billboard Music Awards, four American Music Awards, two BET Awards, and two People’s Choice Awards.

Doja’s creativity and showmanship as a performer have been praised time and time again, she has delivered unique and show stopping performances on nearly all the major Award Show stages including the Grammy Awards, the American Music Awards, the Billboard Awards, the iHeart Radio Awards and the MTV VMA and EMA Awards. Her last tour sold out in 10 minutes and she has played numerous festivals including Rap Caviar Live Miami, Posty Fest, Day n Vegas and Rolling Loud LA.

Doja Cat’s new album “Planet Her” came out in June 2021 and dominated the charts, debuting at number one on the Billboard Top R&B Albums chart and number two on the Billboard Top 200 and Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, marking Doja Cat’s career best and highest debut to date with 109,000 in total activity in the United States alone.

Spanning a range of genres “Planet Her” also generated the highest first day Spotify streams for an album by a female rapper, was the top Pop album upon release based on consumption according to MRC data, and marks both the biggest debut for female rapper and the top female R&B debut of 2021. “Kiss Me More” featuring SZA, the lead single off “Planet Her” is certified platinum by the RIAA and hit number one at Top 40 and Rhythm radio with over 2.8 billion streams worldwide. Doja Cat recently became the first rapper to have three songs in the Top 10 at Top 40 radio.
