Bhad Bhabie (real name Danielle Bregoli) stopped by the Billboard office to discuss her Billboard Music Awards nomination, reflect on her breakout appearance on Dr. Phil, reveal if she would ever consider collaborating with labelmate Mason “Yodel Boy” Ramsey and to dish on what fans can expect from her new music, which will be released “very soon.”
Bregoli reveals to Billboard’s Kevan Kenney that she was asleep when news broke that she was nominated for her first Billboard Music Award, for top rap female artist. “[I got] a call from my manager,” she says, “and I had just did some really stupid shit, so he was like, ‘I thought there was nothing that could save you, but congratulations, kid, you were just nominated.’ I was like, ‘Huh? OK.’”
Asked if she thinks that she and her fellow nominees Nicki Minaj and Cardi B are the top three female MCs in rap right now, the 15-year-old responds, “I would say so … because what other rap female artists are really on the Billboard [chart]?” Bregoli’s recent release -- “Gucci Flip-Flops,” featuring Lil Yachty -- is her third single to hit the Billboard Hot 100.
