Song of the Day #5,022: ‘Woman’ – Doja Cat

Returning to my look at ‘What the Kids are Listening To’ on this week’s Billboard Hot 100, I pick up with a pair of songs from Ed Sheeran. Sheeran’s ‘Bad Habits‘ and ‘Shivers‘ sit at #10 and #11, respectively, after peaking at #2 and #4.

That brings us to #12, and Doja Cat’s ‘Woman.’ This is the fourth single from Doja Cat’s 2021 album Planet Her, and the third to reach the top ten (it peaked at #9).

A sultry Afrobeat track that features vocals and rapping by Doja, this song has a strong Rihanna vibe (and includes a namecheck of Rihanna to boot). It is also accompanied by a video full of Doja Cat eye candy, an area in which she has repeatedly delivered.

I like Doja Cat’s music, but I’ve become an even bigger fan of her presence on TikTok, where she is relatable and hilarious.

[Intro]
Hey, woman
Hey, woman

[Chorus]
Woman
Let me be your woman
Woman, woman, woman (Ayy)
I can be your woman
Woman, woman, woman (Ayy)
Let me be your woman
Woman, woman, woman (Ayy)
I can be your woman
Woman, woman, woman (Ayy)

[Verse 1]
What you need?
She give tenfold, come here, papa, plant your seed
She can grow right from her womb a family
Provide lovin’ overlooked and unappreciated, you see (Yeah)
You can reciprocate
I got delicious taste, you need a woman’s touch in your place
Just protect her and keep her safe
Baby, worship my hips and waist
So feminine with grace
I touch your soul when you hear me say, “Boy”
Let me be your woman

[Chorus]
Woman
Lеt me be your woman
Woman, woman, woman
I can be your woman
Woman, woman, woman
Lеt me be your woman
Woman, woman, woman (Ayy)
I can be your woman
Woman, woman, woman

[Verse 2]
I can be your lady, I’m a woman
I’m a motherfucker, but they got a problem
Put some babies in your life and take away the drama
Put the paper in a picture like a diorama
Gotta face a lot of people of the opposite
‘Cause the world told me, “We ain’t got the common sense”
Gotta prove it to myself that I’m on top of shit
And you would never know a god without the goddesses
Honest as fuckin’ honest get
And I could be on everything
I mean I could be the leader, head of all the states
I could smile and jiggle it ’til his pockets empty
I could be the CEO, just look at Robyn Fenty
And I’ma be there for you ’cause you on my team, girl
Don’t ever think you ain’t hella these niggas dream girl
They wanna pit us against each other
When we succeedin’ for no reasons
They wanna see us end up like we Regina on Mean Girls
Princess or queen, tomboy or king (Yeah)
You’ve heard a lot, you’ve never seen (Nah)
Mother Earth, Mother Mary rise to the top
Divine feminine, I’m feminine (Why?)

[Chorus]
Woman (Daddy)
Let me be your woman (Let me be your—)
Woman, woman, woman (Let me be your—)
I can be your woman
Woman, woman, woman (Daddy)
Let me be your woman (I know)
Woman, woman, woman (Daddy)
I can be your woman (I know)
Woman, woman, woman

[Outro]
Eee, eee, eee (Hey, woman)
(Woman)
Eee, eee, eee (Hey, woman)
Hey (Hey woman)
Mm-hmm, mm-hmm (Woman)
(Hey, woman)
(Hey, woman)

    She was one of many exceptional artists on last night’s Grammys. I must say that the music the kids are listening to of late is as strong as ever.
