You rappers are in trouble now.
A couple weeks ago, “Cash Me Ousside” girl Danielle Bregoli jumpstarted her rap career as Bhad Bhabie with her debut single “These Heaux.” She followed it up a week later with the video, and now, she’s hit the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
“These Heaux” debuts at No. 77 on the chart dated Sept. 23. Other notable debuts on this week’s chart include DeJ Loaf’s “No Fear” at No. 100, The Weeknd’s “Reminder” at No. 99, Miguel and Travis Scott’s “Skywalker” at No. 97, Young Thug and Future’s “Relationship” at No. 90, and Chris Brown’s “Questions” at No. 89.
Nowadays, people who gain social media fame are parlaying the attention into a rap career. Before Cardi B had a hit single with “Bodak Yellow,” she was making viral videos on Instagram. The social currency appears to be translating to real dough.
Whether Bhad Bhabie will be around for very long remains to be seen, and her entry on the chart may very well be a result of everyone listening to the song just once to satisfy their curiosity.
In case you missed it, listen to Bregoli’s remix of Kodak Black and XXXTentacion’s “Roll in Peace” if you’re into that kind of thing.
