Did James Charles meet Doja Cat when she tested positive for Covid-19? Fans wonder as he teases a collab
Charles' covers have shown that he has an amazing voice and if he is stepping into the music scene officially as a singer, he deserves it
YouTuber James Charles teased some form of collaboration with rapper-singer Doja Cat. As of now, it's not clear what the teamed up effort is going to be exactly, but we do know that it is "coming soon", according to Charles.
Charles took to his Instagram Story account to tease the collaboration on August 1 with a short video. The black-and-white clip shows Charles and Doja Cat side-by-side on a video camera screen among recording equipment with the former announcing "Coming soon" and the latter blowing a kiss.
Although Doja Cat has an evident love for fashion, the upcoming tie-up could either mean she is dipping her toes into the industry alongside Charles or the two are working on music together. Charles, who is most commonly known as a YouTuber in the realms of beauty who focuses on make-up, has also sung in front of the camera. In June 2019, Charles posted a video on YouTube with him singing a cover of Foster the People's hit 'Pumped Up Kicks'. He used make-up products as his instruments and added harmonizing layers of his own voice.
James Charles has also collaborated with musicians before. Last year, he also teamed up with sister band Cimorelli to perform an acoustic rendition of 'Never Enough' from the 2017 musical film, 'The Greatest Showman', which was originally performed by Loren Allred‘s character in the flick, Jenny Lind. The video was then followed by a medley of Demi Lovato‘s all-time greatest hits. In 2018, one of Charles' first notable covers was his rendition of Ariana Grande's 'God is a Woman' from her fourth studio album. 'Sweetener'.
Charles' covers have shown that he has an amazing voice and if he is stepping into the music scene officially as a singer, he deserves it. But not all of the social media is up for a collaboration with Doja Cat as she has recently tested positive for the coronavirus. Back in early March, during an Instagram Live on her account, the rapper said she didn't fear the virus and said, "It's a flu." She added, "You just take some Mucinex (a cold and flu medication) and drink water and tea and sleep. That's all you gotta do."
On July 27, she has revealed that she contracted coronavirus and noted, "I'm okay now. It was a four-day symptom freakout, but I'm fine now." Although she stated that she is okay, several users on Reddit and Twitter feel her and Charles' collaboration is unsafe and risks spreading Covid-19. Reacting to the teaser clip, Reddit users said, "As if he didn't already catch it from one of them Tik Tok parties" and "Anything to keep bringing that YouTube ad money in. Even if it means catching Covid." One commenter asked, "Or maybe they had this filmed before she was diagnosed?"
Over on Twitter, the duo aren't getting many positive reactions either. "pls doja don't do it," says a user while another wrote, "when they both have racism scandals." One user said they are "majorly disappointed."
