"Full offence she does NOT deserve success..."
Last month, it was revealed that Danielle Bregoli had launched a rap career and shot a music video to go alongside it. To be quite honest, the song (iconically titled 'These Heauxs') wasn't actually that bad. (Don't tell anyone I said that.)
Cut to one month later and here she is standing in a room at Atlantic Records with her mum and a bunch of producers thanks to THAT song. Yes, the controversial thirteen year old, who started out life as a meme, has just signed a MULTI MILLION dollar record deal.
Danielle, or Bhad Bhabie as she will be known henceforth, will now join the ranks of hard working, talented artists, musicians and songwriters such as Ed Sheeran, Wiz Khalifa, Bruno Mars, Twenty One Pilots and Sia.
According to TMZ, the social success of her single 'These Heauxs' caught the attention of record execs who jumped at the chance to sign her to the label. The song has almost 30m views on YouTube (music video and audio track combined) and is currently charting inside Billboard's Hot 100 at #77. She's the youngest female rapper, at age 14, to appear on the chart.
The record deal is said to include multiple albums (god help us all) and is apparently worth MILLIONS of dollars. Not bad for a fourteen year old internet star with a criminal record, is it?
Needless to say, people are absolutely fuming about the news.
full offense she does NOT deserve success. i’m not generally one to hate but she’s famous for being insanely disrespectful to her mother https://t.co/mVddA6cc3A— antonio (@antoniodelotero) September 17, 2017
People are pissed off at the way a white girl has managed to profit off black culture and succeed in places in a way ACTUAL talented people of colour would probably never be able to.
In fact, everyone in general is pissed off at the way the label has favoured her social buzz over actual talent.
These are the execs at Atlantic Records who signed the "Cash me outside" girl to a REAL record deal for when u ask "who did this to music?" pic.twitter.com/hubeESbRXC— Jensen Karp (@JensenClan88) September 16, 2017
Like, whatever... we get that's how it obviously works these days but... for some struggling artists, it's kinda demoralising.
Cash me outside girl got a contract with Atlantic Records for disrespecting her mom while artists with actual talent are being slept on— Rihanna News (@RihannaSpot) September 15, 2017
Some people thought there were better things to spend money on than enable a troubled teen.
Atlantic Records just gave the "Cash Me Outside" girl a record deal. They should've donated those millions to a Hurricane relief fund.— NUFF (@nuffsaidNY) September 15, 2017
Others are just employing the 'don't hate the player, hate the game' mentality and honestly, they're right.
I'm not mad at the girl from Cash Me Outside being signed, she had an opportunity and ran with it.— Clout Strife (@WavyUltima) September 15, 2017
I'm mad at the opportunity for existing.
So, to summarise, the Cash Me Outside girl is now a millionaire, with a real-life genuine record deal, 11.3m followers on Instagram, able to command up to $50k per sponsored post... and she's only fourteen. GOODBYE FOREVER.
