Sugar Fact

How did Doja Cat rise to fame?

Doja Cat is a known singer, rapper and songwriter now, but have you ever wondered what brought her recognition?

Doja expressed her interest in music and ballet since she was a child. In her youth, she was downloading beats from YouTube and started creating her own music.

She released her debut single “So High” on the streaming platform SoundCloud in 2013 and quickly rose to prominence. Consequently, she signed a recording deal with RCA Records. She released her debut EP “Purrr!” in 2014 which produced one more single “No Police.”

Doja Cat released her debut album “Amala” on 30 March 2018, but it failed to perform well on charts. The release was followed by her second album “Hot Pink” in 2019, which turned out to be a commercial success and peaked at no. 17 at the US Billboard 200.

The singer planned to embark on a tour and participate in Coachella, but this has been cancelled due to the on-going pandemic. However, Doja Cat continues working and creating new music, which confirms that she will have a place in the music industry for years to come.

Sugar Quiz Answer - Did You Get It Right?

Legacies: which character was affected by black magic in season 2?

Answer: Josie Saltzman.

In the course of season 2, Josie Saltzman was becoming more and more dependent on black magic. After the first attempts with this dangerous type of magic, Josie sacrificed herself to save her family and friends from a prison world.

Consequently, Josie was forced to absorb the enormous amount of black magic, which changed her completely as a person. The dark persona took advantage of her lack of self-confidence and preyed on this.

The real Josie was eventually found by Hope Mikaelson. With the help from Hope, Josie was able to take a stand and defeat her dark alter ego. This has, however, left Hope’s life hanging in the balance. Will Hope survive the journey to Josie’s mind and eventually wake up? Fans were left with a cliffhanger and need to wait until the premiere of season 3.
