TikTok helps Doja Cat to her first Aussie radio hit
American rapper Doja Cat has her first Top 5 radio hit in Australia, with ‘Say So’ breaking into the upper spots on the TMN Hot 100 powered by Radio Monitor.
Real name Amalaratna Zandile Dlamini, the 24-year-old RCA-signed artist rises two spots to #4 this week, 10 weeks after first breaking the chart.
‘Say So’ is a single from her second studio album, 2019’s Hot Pink. The track has already been certified ARIA Platinum in Australia whilst cracking the Top 10 of charts in the US, Canada, Ireland, the UK and New Zealand.
The 2019 tune has been benefiting from its popularity on TikTok, with popular creator Hayley Sharpe creating a dance to accompany ‘Say So’ on the booming social media platform last year.
Doja Cat copied the dance in her official music video for the track in February of 2020.

Meanwhile Tones And I has broken Australian radio’s Top 10 songs for the third time, and is eyeing off her third #1 Hot 100 placing with ‘Bad Child’.
‘Bad Child’ climbs four places to reach #9 on the chart.
The podium places on the chart remain as tight as ever, with The Weeknd’s unstoppable cross-genre hit ‘Blinding Lights’ racking up yet another week at #1.
The single holds off competition from Harry Styles with ‘Adore You’ (#3) and Aussie radio royalty Justin Bieber who sits just a stone’s throw away in second place, up two spots this week for ‘Intentions’ ft. Quavo.
