This song is part of our “THE SUMMER 97 (1998 x 2023)” playlist. Check out the full list.

There are plenty of creative ways to express the essence of the infamous phrase “suck my dick,” rather than saying it flat out. Doja Cat delivers a rousing reminder of her rap talent on her most Hip-Hop single in ages, “Attention.” Sparse in production but with no shortage of bars, Doja Cat puts everyone on notice with the sexiest rendition of Lil Kim’s “Suck My Dick” to date. No, it’s not a sample or a cover, Doja Cat never says “dick,” the attention instead is on her— though she never says that word either, she ain’t pussy.

Watch the “Attention” video, stream it, or get Doja’s last album on vinyl.

In celebration of summer, the staff at THE 97 has compiled a playlist containing some of our favorite summer songs, from then and now. Each day we will reveal one song, rotating daily between past and present with pairings from 1998 and 2023, for a total of 97 days/songs. Since we love nostalgia, we’re celebrating summer songs from 1998 as they turn 25, alongside new songs that we feel deserve some shine. Pairings could be thematic, sonic, or based connections between the artists.
