Several major artists have distanced themselves from producer Dr. Luke after he was accused of rape by pop singer, Kesha.
Initially, Doja Cat seemed unprepared to choose a side, but in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, it seems she may have had a change of heart.
“That’s not a question I feel really comfortable answering,” she said when asked whether she would be following in Saweetie’s footsteps and refusing to work with the embattled beatmaker.
Dr. Luke has several credits for Doja’s work, including her smash hit single, “Say So,” and her SZA collab, “Kiss Me More.”
“I haven’t worked with him in a very long time,” she continued. “There’s s—t that he’s credited for, where I’m like, ‘Hmm, I don’t know, I don’t know if you did anything on that.'”
According to Doja, he hasn’t had much of an input in her music.
“The point is he’s gotten some credit for s—t. And, you know, it’s whatever. I don’t think I need to work with him again. I don’t think I need to work with him in the future. I know that,” she said. “I think it was definitely nice of me to work with him.”
She added, “When asked about Luke I may have said something that someone could interpret as me saying that he had taken credit on things he didn’t deserve to,” she said. “I just want to be clear that I have no firsthand knowledge of that being the case and I don’t want to participate in the rumor mill. The credits on my music are accurate, and I don’t want to imply anything else.”
In 2014, Kesha sued producer Dr. Luke asking for all of her contracts with him to be nullified because he allegedly “sexually, physically, verbally, and emotionally abused [Kesha] to the point where [she] nearly lost her life.” He then countersued shortly.
Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga have publicly supported Kesha.
