Say So was already a bonafide hit; firing up the charts thanks largely in part to a popular TikTok dance, it started the trajectory to bring Doja Cat to mainstream attention (outside of Mooo!). So where to go next, but of course, a remix with Nicki Minaj. It was almost too much to handle – both the Megan Thee Stallion/Beyonce and Doja/Nicki remixes dropping in the same week – but in this locked down world, these remixes have been a light in the dark.
The Say So remix is pretty good. It does tear the fabric of the song apart disrupting the flow, but Nicki’s verse adds to the song. It’s a remix that doesn’t just feel like the rap has been tacked on the side; it’s integrated into the track and it results in a remix that feels like it’s meant to be, not just created to boost the song on the Billboard Top 100. The result: a remix that creates a new version of the song that compliments the original.
