INDIO, CALIFORNIA - APRIL 24: Doja Cat performs on the Coachella stage during the 2022 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival on April 24, 2022 in Indio, California.

Doja Cat’s “Vegas” will be the first single from the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Elvis Presley biopic. The song — which interpolates Big Mama Thornton’s 1952 rock and roll classic “Hound Dog,” a song that Elvis famously covered — will be the first taste of the ELVIS Soundtrack when it drops on May 6.

Doja debuted the single during her Coachella performances over the past two weekends and brought out gospel singer Shonka Dukureh — who plays Thornton in the film — for the sets. The movie, which stars Austin Butler as Elvis and Tom Hanks as the late rock icon’s controversial manager, Colonel Tom Parker, will open in theaters on June 24.

Check out a preview of the song in Luhrmann’s Instagram post below.
