Anne-Marie Taps Doja Cat For ‘To Be Young’
Doja Cat offered some commitments to British pop singer Anne-Marie’s new song, “To Be Young,” which investigates all the high points and low points of growing up.
Bringing out a very recognizable lighthearted chaos, “To Be Young” illustrates reckless youth. “Fall in love, broken heart/Break the rules, drink too much,” Anne-Marie sings on the chorus. “We’re all a mess, but I guess/This is what it feels like to be young.”
While Doja’s verse is brief, she echoes this equivalent subject of teenage restlessness. “This can’t be real life, don’t even feel high/Maybe if you take one with me then it will feel right,” she sings. “Don’t wanna know what staying still would even feel like.”
Albeit generally viewed as a rapper most importantly, Doja has developed increasingly more into a hip-hop-pop hybrid of sorts, with songs like her raving success “Say So” taking on a genre-fusing quality. On “To Be Young,” Doja inclines significantly more into her pop sensibilities while flaunting her vocal ability.
Look at “To Be Young” below and told us what you think.
Dye my hair a million colours
Dream I’ll make a billion dollars
I swear that they can’t come soon enough
In the meantime, we just
Fall in love, broken heart
Break the rules, drink too much
