Let’s be real – 2017’s end-of-the-year-recap will most definitely include Danielle Bregoli’s infamous words on Dr. Phil’s TV show “Cash me ousside – how bow dah?”. What no one knew or could have ever expected from the viral sensation, is a testament to the power and clever use of the internet and an applause for the millennial generation. Dannielle Bregoli’s alter ego, Bhad Bharbie, officially debuted not just one but both of her first ever singles on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
While These Heaux, an anthem for independence, managed to reach No. 77, Hi Bich, the unarguably catchy hard-hitting base-driven track, earned the highest-ranking entry in the charts in October. Not only did Bhad Bhabie successfully make a name as a rapper on the most important charts of today, she is also able to claim a reputable record deal as her own as she officially signed a multi-million dollar record deal with none other than Atlantic Records.
However, Bhad Bhabie isn’t the only one to ride the wave of social media fame. Cardi B for example first gained international recognition by making videos on Instagram and even The Weeknd started on YouTube. So only time will tell where Danielle Bregoli aka Bhad Bhabie will take her career. If These Heaux and Hi Bich are any indicator for the power of streaming, she might just be around for a while.
