In the new video for “Need to Know,” a single off the upcoming album, Planet Her, Doja Cat playfully grinds the air to dance in her undies, then plays her PlayStation 5 alongside her troupe of baddies. The small detail is yet another example of how the pop artist and TikTok viral sensation threads video games into her work.
The music video is a relatively standard concept: Doja and her girls have a night out on the town. There’s just a slight twist: They’re all aliens — Doja herself resembling Aayla Secura from Star Wars — and it takes place in a retro-futuristic Blade Runner-esque world. Instead of depicting them getting all glammed up and putting on makeup, we see the group lounging on the couch, and pregaming with video games. It’s sexy. It’s cheeky. And most of all, it’s oozing with Doja Cat’s usual playfulness as she dances on the sofa and smoothly grinds the air to dance alongside her girls.
