This interactive Doja Cat music video lets you try coding

Doja Cat is taking music videos to a whole new level.

For her new single Woman, the rap artist collaborated with nonprofit organization Girls Who Code to create an interactive experience they're calling the first-ever codable music video.

You can try editing the music video for yourself at dojacode.com where you can try three different programming languages, including CSS, JavaScript, and Python.

At the site a.k.a. Planet Her, Woman will start playing and when it stops, you can fill in the blanks besides lines of code to affect the visuals. For instance, you can change the color of Doja Cat's nails.

There's another prompt that asks you to type in the name of any city which will then tweak the color of the sky based on your chosen place's real time.

Once you're done coding and putting your own spin on the music video, you can download it and share it on social media.

Empowering women to code

"Learning to code enables you to change the world around you, and we’re thrilled to partner with global superstar Doja Cat, beloved by young people everywhere, as we invite girls to experience ‘Planet Her’, a place where they get to be in control," said Girls Who Code CEO Tarika Barrett.

"We want to get more girls to try coding. But there are a thousand other things that girls care about more than coding. And Doja Cat is like 999 of them. So we were like...can Doja make learning to code cool?” added Emily Berger, Creative lead at Mojo Supermarket, which developed the code with digital studio Active Theory.

Doja Cat joins the trend of pop stars partnering with tech companies to spark their fans' creativity. In the past, Grimes teamed up with WeTransfer while Billie Eilish collaborated with Adobe.
