CRITIC REVIEWS

Exclaim!

Planet Her has no skips, not even the previously released singles. It showcases many sides to Doja but remains cohesive — if you don't consume it in its entirety, you'll definitely miss out on truly understanding her world.

Entertainment Weekly

A record so fizzy and golden that its release the same week of the summer equinox hardly seems like a coincidence.

80
Evening Standard
This album is overloaded with the kind of startling couplets and zingy melodies that could soundtrack the next viral dance challenge.
80
NME

Throughout this intoxicating third album, the artist born Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini pivots effortlessly between deceptively sweet singing ... and fierce, filter-free rapping ... It’s a breezy affair, 14 tracks fly by in under 45 minutes and that gives Doja an ample opportunity to show off her range.

Rolling Stone
The singer’s third album feels like a debut, inviting us deeper than ever into her exquisitely strange and spectacularly camp world.

AllMusic

Doja Cat tries something new with almost every orbit on Planet Her. When the production magic keeps up with her boundless spirit, the songs reach a unique hotspot of fun and infectiousness.

78
Pitchfork
The third album from the extremely chaotic pop star, battle rapper, and edgelord is a thrilling ride that puts her eclecticism on full display.
78
Beats Per Minute

Of all current pop stars, Doja Cat is the one to unite her naturally ‘casual’ image with that of Afro-futurism, composing ‘space-age’ music on her third album Planet Her.

70
The Forty-Five

The record, much like its creator, is resilient and convincing enough to withstand more than a gentle gust – on Planet Pop 2021, anyway.

70
Clash

A chaotic, unpredictable, and ridiculously entertaining compendium.

70
DIY

‘Planet Her’ is certain to be all over the internet faster than you can say “Bitch, I’m a cow”, but whether the record’s legacy will hold past the next trend cycle is not quite written in the stars.

70
The Line of Best Fit

Overall, Planet Her is less of a sci-fi concept album and more an exploration of new genres for the star, offering up beautiful music videos and album artwork, but losing its promised intergalactic concept completely.

60
Slant Magazine
The songs comprise a nebulous mass not unlike the swirling galaxy of the album’s cover art.
60
The Guardian
With her unerring ability to kickstart TikTok crazes, Doja Cat’s sci-fi concept album – with guest turns from Ariana Grande and SZA – shines as a paragon of 2021 pop.
60
Gigwise

Planet Her is a passable collection of pop songs, but as a part of the Doja Cat universe, it’s unrepresentative of her bold, charismatic personality.

58
A.V. Club

Unfortunately, on Planet Her, Doja Cat throws what she knows to the wayside, opting to dive into the crystalline pool of predictable pop sounds.

50
Loud and Quiet

It’s a high-budget chart album in every sense, often to its detriment.

50
The Needle Drop

Outside of its strong first leg and closing lead single, Planet Her lacks as a showcase for Doja Cat's personality.

'Planet Her' tem um problema muito específico: ele não funciona.

Suas músicas não funcionam, sua ideia não funciona, sua execução é um desastre. De toda essa geração de artistas em ascensão impulsionados pelo TikTok, Doja Cat é uma das mais limitadas e sem o menor sentido artístico. Seu grande hit 'Say So' provou de uma fórmula de sucesso que não pode ser replicada e, infelizmente, Doja ... read more

While this is mostly on the level of Hot Pink, and while it may be more consistent and have fewer low points, it just doesn’t have as many highlights or as much personality, and ends up being a little generic and disappointing as a result.

Doja Cat had a huge 2020, as Say So was a monster hit, she had major collaborations with artists like Ariana Grande & The Weeknd, and she got multiple Grammy nominations. I also really liked her album, and also loved her “Tia Tamera” ... read more

'Planet Her' is Doja Cat's most anticipated album so far after she blew up during 2019/2020 through Tik Tok for the most part and although I wasn't close to a fan at first, her music really grew on me as time passed. She's creates super catchy songs with ease, having the ability to sing and rap, helping her make music at a high quality. 'Hot Pink' was her big break, having almost every song on the album go viral on Tik Tok at different times which is a case like no other as she always had a hit ... read more

Sorry in advance if this review isn't perfect this is my first one :)

So I've been reaaaaally hyped for this album ever since she announced the tracklist and the visuals/theme. Kiss me more is my third most played track of the year so far. So obviously, I prepared myself to embark for a fun summer trip on Planet Her only to find out that unfortunately there's not much to explore there.
First of all, the visuals and theme diverge too much from the music in my opinion. The production here is ... read more
