The wait for Doja Cat’s third studio album just became a little more bearable.

The Grammy-nominated artist released her much-anticipated “Need to Know” track and accompanying video. Doja announced the drop earlier this week on social media, sharing a sneak peek of the futuristic video.

Shortly after the teaser, Doja took to Twitter to clarify that “Need to Know” wasn’t her next single, but rather a track that would hold fans over until she released “the next more important single.”

need to know isn’t even the next single is just some shit before the next more important single comes out for you to enjoy.

“Need to Know” will land on Planet Her, the follow-up to Doja’s 2019 project Hot Pink. The upcoming effort will deliver 14 tracks, including the previously released “Kiss Me More” with SZA along with “You Right,” her collaboration with The Weeknd. Other guest artists include Young Thug (“Payday”), Ariana Grande (“I Don’t Do Drugs”), and J.I.D (“Options”).

Doja spoke about the album during an interview with SZA for V magazine. She touched on the project’s overall tone (“divine feminine”) as well as the handful of featured artists.

“It’s people that I respect and I’m extremely excited about having on the album and it’s a full-circle moment for me, basically,” she said. “Just knowing that I have you on it is just sexy. It’s perfect. I feel confident. It doesn’t feel like something out of myself, you know? I feel like I’m doing what I want to do.”
