Doechii hit the ground running this year, and with her EP she / her / black bitch the Tampa native cements herself as a distinct voice whose versatile talents range from quick-fire bars to seductive singing. On the EP Doechii outlines different layers of her life experience: from villainous to confident to soft and sad, and to overall proving that she matters. As NPR stated “Doechii reclaims and spits back at anyone who dares to diminish her power.”
The self-proclaimed ‘Swamp Princess” received a standing ovation on her very first BET performance this year, of which Vulture said, “While everyone in L.A.’s Microsoft Theater rose to their feet, I felt invigorated, like I could kick someone’s ass…Doechii’s fiery performance didn’t just snatch her own wig: It snatched everybody’s.”
She also performed at the prestigious Essence Festival in New Orleans, was nabbed as the RADAR US Cover Artist at Spotify, the VEVO DSCVR Artist for June, the BET Artist of the Month for June, named a Billboard Queer Game-Changer for Pride, and MTV’s Push Artist.
Rolling Stone and The LA Times named “Persuasive” as one of the ‘Best Songs Of 2022’ while Complex listed “Crazy” as one of the ‘Best Songs of 2022’ and NPR picked her as an artist to watch, stating “and “Crazy” lets us know she’s coming in swinging.”
“Persuasive” and “Crazy” and are testament to the breadth of Doechii’s sound and talents. Doechii has dominated the internet since the release of her unwaveringly original EPs— 2020’s Oh the Places You’ll Go and 2021’s BRA-LESS—and the single “Yucky Blucky Fruitcake.” In addition to featuring on Isaiah Rashad’s “Wat U Sed,” she was named one of Spotify’s “Most Necessary Artists to Watch in 2022”, was the cover star of the Los Angeles Times fall preview, and tipped as an Artist To Watch by Complex, XXL, Rolling Stone, Pigeons & Planes, and Hiphopdx.
Doechii’s acclaimed EP she / her / black bitch features an alternate version of her song “Persuasive”, featuring SZA, named as one of the best songs of 2022. The upbeat R&B anthem showcases Doechii’s impressive ability to flex her signature versatile flows into Grammy-winner SZA’s immaculate vibes.
