Thirsty fans won’t be getting a look at Doja Cat’s breasts despite her “Say So” track’s success. After previously claiming she would show her boobs “real hard” if the song hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, the RCA Records artist acknowledged she was merely trolling in an Instagram livestream on Monday (May 11).
“I just realized I have to show my boobs real hard,” she laughed. “I’m just gonna be honest with you guys — I did play you. I’m not showing my boobs real hard, man. You got fucking played! You got fucking played! Look at yourself.”
We were played, duped, bamboozled ? @DojaCat

Doja originally made her declaration via Twitter on May 5. At the time, “Say So” — fresh off a remix featuring Nicki Minaj — was competing with Megan Thee Stallion’s Beyoncé-assisted single “Savage” for the No. 1 spot in the country.
“If say so hits #1 I’ll show you guys my boobs really hard,” Doja tweeted.

Billboard confirmed Doja and Nicki’s “Say So” reached the top of the latest Hot 100 on Monday. According to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, the track experienced a 966 percent increase in sales for the week ending on May 7.
The song ascended from No. 6 to No. 1 thanks to 66,000 downloads and 30.3 million streams in the U.S. “Say So” originally appeared on Doja’s 2019 album Hot Pink, but the remix featuring Nicki wasn’t released until May 1.
Doja and Nicki’s collaborative single is the first No. 1 song of both women’s careers. The latter also broke a record for a Billboard-charting artist’s longest wait to attain a No. 1 hit.
Nicki finally reached the top of Hot 100 with the 109th entry of her career, demolishing the former benchmark set by Justin Bieber. The Canadian singer formerly held the record after earning his first No. 1 song for his 47th entry on the chart.
After the news was broken to disappointed fans, jokes started flying on Twitter with Doja even retweeted a meme referencing the situation.
