Doja Cat Changes ‘Scarlet’ Art After Striking Similarities to Chaver’s Album Cover

Just two days after Doja Cat unveiled the cover art for her upcoming album, Scarlet, the star has updated the illustration.

“Updated cover,” the singer wrote on Instagram on Thursday (Aug. 31) alongside the new art, which features a hand-drawn, spider-like creature with pearls as a head and abdomen against a white background. See the post here.

The original art featured a fittingly scarlet-colored spider, but Doja seemed to have deleted the post and changed the cover after fans noticed that German hardcore band Chaver also used the same spider on the artwork for their upcoming album cover.

According to Stereogum, both Doja’s original album art and Chaver’s LP cover were designed by the same person, Portland-based artist Dusty Ray. An even stranger coincidence is that both albums will be dropping on the same day, September 22.

Fans have already heard two songs from Doja Cat’s album: lead single “Attention,” which was released in June and has so far peaked at No. 31 on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as “Paint the Town Red,” which reached the Hot 100 top five this week. “Red” also moved 5-1 to top this week’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. She’s set to release another single, “Demons” on Friday (Sept. 1).
