Young fans of rapper Doja Cat are flocking to church after watching her disturbing new “Demons” music video.
Dressed as a demon, the 27-year-old singer joins others in the industry like Sam Smith and Lil Nas X, in a music video praised by critics but rejected by man Gen Z fans who say it’s gone too far.
“The Doja Cat’s latest demonic song inadvertently caused millions of people to consider going back to church and beginning to pray again,” Christian rapper Ruslan said in a YouTube video.
One of the top comments on Doja Cat’s music video — released last week and has over 8 million views — is, “Thanks Doja to making me wanna go to church everyday.”
“Thanks Doja for reminding me to definitely read my Bible and go to church,” one user commented.
“Doja got me going to church daily now,” another said.
“Going straight into a gospel playlist right after here,” someone else added.

The artist, whose real name is Amala Zandile Dlamini, started alluding to the dark theme in March when she changed her profile picture on TikTok of her dressed as a demon and started posting stills from the music video on her Instagram.
Tens of thousands of fans shared their concerns for her in the comments and said her content was pushing them to seek Jesus.
You don’t need to see the music video for yourself to know it’s intentionally disturbing by paying homage to horror films like “The Shining” and “Poltergeist.”
This reminds me of the theme from the Bible, what the enemy meant for evil, God will use for good.
I thank God for shining the light in the darkness, and I pray for Doja and anyone involved in this project.
