Somehow, someway, rapper Bhad Bhabie keeps her name in these streets. Whereas others like herself have fallen off, Bhad Bhabie has been able to maintain a viable social media presence. And with music being one of her passions, Bhad Bhabie has found success in that area as well. On the music front, fans are raving that the rapper may have put forth her best effort, and she’s celebrating with an infamous dance.
Florida native Bhad Bhabie, born Danielle Bregoli, began her social media reign as a pre-teen. Along with Bhabie’s mother, the rapper first appeared on the Dr. Phil episode, “”I Want to Give Up My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding, Twerking 13-Year-Old Daughter Who Tried to Frame Me for a Crime.” This would birth the instant viral-catchphrase meme “Catch me outside, how about that?” after she attempted to engage the audience in a physical altercation.
Bregoli’s attempts to profit off the “Cash Me Outside Gurl” momentum proved effective, especially after signing a deal with Atlantic Records. The name “Bhad Bhabie” was then adapted as she pushed to move away from her initially perceieved image. The release of Bhad Bhabie’s first single, “These Heaux”, was a monumental time for the rapper. The single appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 at #77 and Bhad Bhabie would be labeled the youngest female rapper to have a debut single on the charts.
There are those that discredit the rapper’s musical efforts, however. According to Bhad Bhabie, she feels the criticism of her music is due to her being white. Once taking to Instagram, the rapper expressed that other female rappers are promoted more than she is because of their looks, but they are sometimes no where near her talent. But even though there are those who don’t like her, Bhad Bhabie has plenty of fans that love her. Currently, her monthly listener count on Spotify stands at almost 2.7 million. One of the rappers latest singles, Do It Like Me, gained the support of a few of her celebrity friends. Artists like Demi Lovato, Pia Mia, Charli XCX, and reality star Blac Chyna joined in the party and danced along with Bhad Bhabie for the song’s visualizer.
Her 2018 single “Geek’d Up” also resurfaced in 2020 on the popular social media app TikTok and garnered a massive amount of traction. Influencers on the app charged the #GeekdUp hashtag, helping to produce over a quarter of a million videos of people dancing to the song. These videos amassed millions of views, and helped the Lil Baby assisted song to achieve over 86 million streams on Spotify. On top of that, Bhad Bhabie has seen more success with OnlyFans. When the rapper turned 18, she launched an account on the popularized app and broke various records on the platform in under 6 hours. From subscriptions, she pulled in over $750,000 while messaging costs brought in over $250k within that time.
The rapper gave Rain Mag an exclusive interview where she expressed joy in the fact that people thought she would only be around for “15 minutes.” But, she’s been able to thrive amongst life’s ongoing viscissitudes. “Being able to provide for myself and my family I think, for me, was something I accomplished and was big,” Bhad Bhabie said. “Now, it’s more about the freedom of being able to do what I want with my music. I just bought a house at 18 so I’m really proud of myself. I feel like I’m the true definition of self-made.”
But with her recent OnlyFans success, Bhad Bhabie still gives attention to her music. The rapper latest effort in music is a feature on Lil Candy Paint’s “22 (Remix),” which has garnered much fanfare. Taking to Instagram, Bhad Bhabie shared that she had no idea why fans love her verse so much. Nevertheless, as the lyrics to her verse plays in the background, Bhad Bhabie begins to dance in the video clip. She even does it while on a handstand, before hopping away in a seemingly joking manner.
