When the duo began focusing on their solo music, Gabi released her debut EP, Gabroadway, in June 2020, which contains 3 covers and a medley.[18] In September 2020, she gave an interview for Forbes following the lead single "Champagne Dreams" of her upcoming debut studio album, Beautiful Mess.[5] The song was followed by the second single "Pretty Little Mind" the next month.[19] She also has launched her first fragrance that has the same name as her album Beautiful Mess.[20] In June 2021, Badgley Mischka collaborated with Gabi and K9Wear and launched a clothing collection for dogs, and Gabi served as an ambassador for the canine collection.[21][22] Badgley Mischka has also worked on the design of her wedding rehearsal dinner dress and a coordinating outfit for her dog Lilian "Lily" Rose.[23][24] In August 2021, Gabi released the third single "Not Today" off of her debut studio album, and was the opening act for Russian-German DJ Zedd at his concert in Musikfest.[25][26][27] The same month, Pumpkin & Spice partnered with Gabi and launched their skincare line.[28] In October 2021, Gabi released her 'cancel culture anthem' single titled "Immaculate".[29] She also appeared on the Facebook show Red Table Talk|Red Table Talk: The Estefans in November.[30] In December 2021, DeMartino collaborated with Kenny Screven on a Christmas single titled "Barbie and Ken".[31]

Controversies

In September 2020, Gabi was criticized for a video titled "BFF Income Challenge" in which she was accused of flaunting her income. In the video, she compared her spending income with a friend revealing a "spending disparity of thousands of dollars per week". She later issued an apology.[35]

In December 2020, Gabi made a nude video of herself at the age of 3 available for sale for $3 on the content subscription platform OnlyFans.[36][37][38][39][40] She was accused of duping her fans about the contents of her video which was teased with the caption "won't put my panties on", distributing child pornography and setting up unsuspecting purchasers for felony possession of child pornography.[41] OnlyFans suspended her account for violating their terms of service. Gabi initially attempted to downplay the incident as "trolling", stating to Business Insider|Insider, "Drama channels are trying to make something out of a childhood video of me, that's hilarious", and claiming her OnlyFans "was not a sexual page",[42] though her previous posts were sexual in nature.[43]
