At just 14-years of age, Danielle Bregoli, made famous by the viral appearance on Dr.Phil, has signed with Atlantic Records. After releasing her debut single "These Heaux" in late August under the newly adopted Bhad Bhabie, the single peaked at #1 on Spotify's Viral US and Global Charts, briefly outpacing Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do," and earning more than 3.6 million streams on the service. The video, released two weeks later, exploded with 2 million views in the first 24 hours and has already racked up more than 20 million views in three weeks. This week, Bhad Bhabie became the youngest female rapper to debut on the Billboard Hot 100 when "These Heaux" landed at #77 and earned the teen a record deal with Atlantic Records.
Bhad Bhabie found notoriety in 2016 when a video of her appearance on Dr. Phil went viral, spawning a "Cash Me Ousside (Remix)" that reached #73 on the Hot 100. Since falling into viral fame, Bhad Bhabie has taken her popularity into her own hands, building up her social media brand and becoming one of the fastest-growing accounts in Instagram history, multiplying from 400 to 11.2 million followers in just 6 months and reportedly making millions of dollars in endorsement and promotion deals. With virtually no promotion, her emoji app BHADMOJI charted at #1 in the App Store in the US and Canada.
