According to TMZ, the teen meme star caught the attention of record executives after the success of her recently released track “These Heaux.” The video has more than 21 million views and took Bregoli to No. 77 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Signed under her rap name “Bhad Bhabie,” Bregoli launched to viral fame after she insisted, “Cash me ousside, how bow dah” on Dr. Phil. Her debut track disses the “bitches” and “hoes” in her life.
Her record deal “includes multiple albums and is worth millions,” TMZ reported.
But will Bregoli face the same ill fate of Kreayshawn, a Bay Area rapper whose song “Gucci Gucci” garnered over 38 million views on YouTube, only for her debut album to flub on the Billboard charts? Unless she has a few more viral hits in her, it may be a similar end result.
Bregoli joins Ed Sheeran, Paramore, Charli XCX, Coldplay, and many other popular artists on the label.
