Viva Las Vegas.
Doja Cat drops “Vegas,” the lead single from the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming ELVIS biopic. The song, which she debuted during Coachella last month, incorporates Big Mama Thornton’s “Hound Dog,” which was re-recorded by Elvis in 1956.
“I ain’t playin’, that’s hide and seek / High school, when you finally peak / Hound dog, come find a treat / I’m a bad bitch but…,” raps the Grammy winner.
“Vegas” appears on the soundtrack to ELVIS starring Austin Butler and Tom Hanks, which hits theaters June 24.
Doja performed the song for the first time at Coachella last month, where she also brought out gospel artist Shonka, who plays Big Mama Thornton in the movie and is featured on the soundtrack as well.
