Doja Cat is keeping her fans happy while she heals from the tonsil surgery she had in May by putting out a new song that was inspired by the movie “Sin City.” “Hound Dog” is sampled in “Vegas,” a single from the upcoming Elvis soundtrack. The Grammy-nominated lyricist calls out fake men who want to keep their dirty secrets hidden.
Doja Cat tells the dogs she’s dated, “I’m losing my patience/This ain’t staying in Vegas/There are more sides to the story/I’m going to tell everyone.” This is a clever twist on the slogan of Elvis Presley’s home away from home.
Shonka Dukureh, who plays “Big Mama Thornton” in the Baz Luhrmann movie and will also be on the soundtrack, is in the music video for the single. Both will come out on Friday, June 24.
Austin Butler plays the title character, the “King of Rock and Roll.” Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Alton Mason play B.B. King and Little Richard, who are also kings in their own right. Colonel Tom Parker, who works for Elvis Presley, is played by Academy Award winner Tom Hanks.
- Dog, player, ah, get it
- Fraud, player, ah, get it
- I understand, I understand
- You ain’t the man, you ain’t a man
- (You ain’t nothin’ but a)
- Hound dog, hound dog, hound dog…Full Lyrics
