Doja Cat and Girls Who Code (a non-profit organisation that aims to get more women interested in coding and computer science) have collaborated on the rapper’s music video, Woman, to make a codable music video.

Fans can visit Dojacode.com to experience the interactive video-game like experience, where three different coding languages are presented to the user in different colours; CSS, (yellow) JavaScript (blue) and Python (pink).

Upon pressing play, users can watch the video until it is paused at specific times throughout, where fans can choose what happens in the video by filling in a word or number to complete the coding sequence.

First up? Choosing the colour of Doja Cat’s nails, which will change in front of your eyes. Users can also change the name of the city, the time of day, and the colour of the sky, with all changes reflected – a fun way for beginners to experiment with coding in an artistic outlet.

“We know first-hand that girls and young women are some of today’s most powerful creators and change-makers. However, too few know that they can have a career in computer science,” Tarika Barrett, CEO of Girls Who Code, told Dazed Beauty. “Most girls haven’t heard of coding, but they are passionate about activism or dance or music. Our job is to show them the connection between learning to code and pursuing those interests.”
