Troubled Florida teenager Danielle Bregoli, who first gained fame for her “Cash Me Outside” catchphrase, is branching into rap. How bow dah?

The 14-year-old from Boynton Beach announced the release of her first single on Instagram on Friday, boasting, “Now da whole game scared,” and adding a link on her account to a 30-second sample of the song called “These Heaux.”

Bregoli goes by the stage name “Bhad Bhabie,” which has been her Instagram account name since her catchphrase caught fire.

A warning here that the new song, whose title is predictably pronounced “hoes,” contains graphic lyrics and language.

BHAD BHABIE HERE NOW DA WHOLE GAME SCARED 👅🎤 CLICK LINK IN BIO 🔥🔥‼️‼️

Bregoli was scheduled to appear in Fort Lauderdale as part of her “summer tour,” but that performance in July, which was expected to include the teen lip-syncing and rapping to songs, and a live Q & A with the audience, was canceled.

The teen was sentenced to five years probation last month, until she’s 19-years-old, after pleading guilty to juvenile charges stemming from four separate arrests, the most recent of which happened in April.

She was found in a car with marijuana, according to the state attorney’s office.

“I was with a friend I shouldn’t have been with, a friend from my past … ” Bregoli said. “I regret it very much.”

On three separate occasions last year, Bregoli allegedly stole her mother’s purse, stole her mother’s car and called the police to falsely report that her mother had been using heroin, officials with the state attorney’s office said.

Two additional charges were dismissed by the state attorney’s office in June.

‘Oh Happy Day’ singer Edwin Hawkins dead at 74

Remembering Edwin Hawkins

Edwin Hawkins, the gospel singer best-known for the song “Oh Happy Day,” has died at age 74. 

The New York Times reported that Hawkins’ publicist, Bill Carpenter, said the musician died of pancreatic cancer in Pleasanton, California.

Hawkins brought gospel music to the mainstream when “Oh Happy Day” reached No. 4 on the Billboard pop chart and No. 2 on the Billboard R&B chart in 1969.

The 18th-century hymn was given an infectious new arrangement and released on “Let Us Go Into the House of the Lord,” an album by Northern California State Youth Choir, a group put together by Hawkins and friend Betty Watson, to raise money to travel to Southern California for a gospel competition.

The Modesto Bee reported in a 2008 profile of Hawkins that the song took a life of its own when an underground radio DJ in San Francisco played it.

“It was recorded on a friend’s little two-track machine,” Hawkins told The Modesto Bee. “It was never intended for commercial purposes at all.”

The song earned the youth choir -- renamed the Edwin Hawkins Singers -- their first Grammy. It got the award for Best Soul Gospel Performance in 1970.

“Oh Happy Day” went on to be recorded by artists across multiple genres, including Elvis Presley, Johnny Mathis and Glen Campbell, The Associated Press reported.

The song saw a resurgence decades later when used in the 1993 Whoopi Goldberg comedy “Sister Act 2.”

Hawkins continued to make music after the success of “Oh Happy Day,” winning three more Grammys and getting voted into the Christian Music Hall of Fame in 2007.

Fast Eddie Clarke, a former member of the British rock band Motorhead, has died at age 67.

The New York Times reported that the death of the guitarist in the best-known lineup of the band was confirmed by manager Todd Singerman. 

Clarke was being treated for pneumonia in a London hospital Wednesday when he died.

“We are devastated to pass on the news we only just heard ourselves earlier tonight...Edward Allan Clarke - or as we all know and love him Fast Eddie Clarke - passed away peacefully yesterday,” a post on the Motorhead Facebook page said. “Ted Carroll (who formed Chiswick Records) made the sad announcement via his FB page, having heard from Doug Smith that Fast Eddie passed peacefully in hospital where he was being treated for pneumonia.”

Past members of the band reacted to the news, as did Metallica co-founder Lars Ulrich and others in the rock music community.

“Just heard the sad news that fast Eddie Clarke has passed away,” Phil Campbell, who was the guitarist in Motorhead from 1984 to 2015, said in a statement. “Such a shock, he will be remembered for his iconic riffs and was a true rock n roller. RIP Eddie.”

“Thank you for the riffs. Thank you for the solos. Thank you for the attitude. Thank you for being in the coolest band,” Ulrich said on Twitter Thursday. “Thank you for inspiring me to go down the same path.”

Clarke was the last living member of the band’s original lineup, which was pointed out in a statement from Mikkey Dee, who was a drummer for Motorhead from 1992 to 2015 and is currently a drummer for the German rock band Scorpions.

“This is terrible news, the last of the three amigos. I saw Eddie not too long ago and he was in great shape, so this is a complete shock,” Dee said. “Me and Eddie always hit it off great. I was looking forward to seeing him in the U.K. this summer when we come around with the Scorps…now Lem and Philthy can jam with Eddie again, and if you listen carefully I’m sure you’ll hear them, so watch out!!! My thoughts go out to Eddie's family and close ones.”

After leaving Motorhead, he formed the hard rock group Fastway in 1983. The group issued its condolences on Twitter.

“We have lost a legend,” Fastway said in a tweet Thursday. “Our thoughts are with his family and friends. He will be sorely missed.”
