Doja Cat to cover Elvis Presley hit for new album

Doja Cat will cover a classic Elvis Presley track for a new album, Music News reports.

The 26-year-old rapper is reportedly set to release a cover of iconic song ‘Hound Dog’ and join a host of other current stars as part of an album celebrating the late King of Rock n Roll’s back catalogue to coincide with upcoming biopic ‘Elvis.’

A source said: “It’s hugely controversial. Elvis fans are diehard and see any tampering as sacrilege, but Warner Bros wanted to bring his music to a new audience. He is one of the most successful musicians of all time, but this album will help introduce his music to a new generation of kids.”

Other stars reportedly set to join the ‘Woman’ hitmaker on the soundtrack include Swae Lee, who is one half of the hip hop duo Rae Sremmurd and is known for having collaborated with Madonna on her ‘Madame X’ album.
