Bhad Bhabie’s rap career so far has been colourful to say the least. The ‘Cash Me Outside’ viral meme turned rap iconoclast could not be more polarising to music fans.
However, true fans of Bhad Bhabie — real name Danielle Bregoli— will know this was all entirely her plan. Music executive Adam Kluger, who signed Bregoli in 2017, told The New York Times: “The initial idea was to brand her. To take this villain—relentless, crazy-attitude kid—and just brand her as this supervillain.”
Anyone who has taken the time to listen to tracks like the Lil Yachty-featuring ‘Gucci Flip Flops’ and ‘Bestie’ featuring Kodak Black will not be surprised to read of Bregoli’s latest sign-post moment.
As reported by TMZ, Bhad Bhabie has inked a US$1 million exclusive songwriter and co-publishing agreement with Pulse Music Group (Ty Dolla $ign, Run The Jewels, Rich The Kid), a subsidiary of BMI.
The deal, inked June 12, sees the Floridian teenager receive US$350k up front, followed by two US$325k instalments when she hits certain revenue targets.
Her publishing contract also states that she receives 70 percent of her future record sales, licensing fees and digital streaming.
Bhad Bhabie has gone from strength to strength since she dedicated her energy into her music. ‘Bestie’ is now the third most streamed female rap song on Spotify right now – go Bestie!
