Have Doja Cat and Grimes collaborated before?

This is the first time Doja Cat and Grimes have collaborated on a project together.

They haven’t made any music together, as of yet. Given the new album Planet Her will feature plenty of other artists, it’s not a far out thought that Doja and Grimes could collaborate in the future.

Doja Cat has been spotted listening to Grimes’ music in the past, so they clearly share similar musical tastes!
