Suck-cessful

adjective; blending blending of “suck” and “successful”
(of product or performance) bad but successful. This word is pronounced the same as “successful”, but a slight pause in delivery after the first syllable conveys its true playful meaning. When written down, its meaning is seen more quickly with the word “suck” right at the beginning.
 
“BUT SHE CAN’T SING! I don’t understand why she’s so suck-cessful.”
Etymology : suck (Slang meaning "person who is easily deceived" is first attested 1836), success (1530s, "result, outcome," from Latin successus "an advance, a coming up; a good result, happy outcome".)
