But to her surprise the video went absolutely VIRAL and racked up over 1 million views & thousands of comments in just a couple of days. Because of the song's popularity, A music producer offered her a trip to Paris, France and Amsterdam, Netherlands to shoot another video for her official single "Barbie Girl '' which reached over 3 million views within a week of posting. But with all the fame comes hate as well, so her comment section was filled with negativity especially with her being a “white female rapper” which is not common in the hip-hop world. This had an impact on Barbie Billion emotionally which made her want to stop rapping just as fast as she started rapping. But she knew full well that they were just mere obstacles.
Since then, she has released 3 more videos on Facebook and each of the videos reached over 3 million views within a week of posting.
It was all uphill from there but an unexpected pregnancy changed her life forever. She knew that she would have to take a backseat for a while so she shot 1 more video entitled “Mommy Barbie Doll” which for the 4th time in a row went viral on Facebook.
