Rebecca Black, who gained fame with her YouTube hit “Friday” is about to release a new single. The new song, “My Moment” will drop on July 18th according to MTV.
The song will be titled “My Moment,” and you don’t have to venture too far to guess what it’ll be about. That’s right, because she’s clearly been around long enough now to be self-referential, the single will tell “the story of her sudden rise to fame,” according to a statement. “It’s a fairy tale story, but it happened in real life.”
The video, though, is probably what everyone is wondering about, given that her first clip was so darn memorable. Will the video for “My Moment” be as intriguing? Sadly, unlikely; early reports imply that it will include images from her real life, like her attending red-carpet events and receiving an award at her junior high school.
But wait! There’s more: Black is also set to drop a five-track EP in August. Few details have trickled out about what that release will include. But we did get this little teaser from her earlier this year: “I really like Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez; all just the fun upbeat stuff, teenager songs,” she told MTV. “My dream duet would be Justin Bieber. Even just doing something with Taylor Swift, or any of my favorite artists would be so cool.” So, basically, pop music?
She had ONE SONG. Does that really qualifiy as a “rise to fame”?
The thing that’s so sad is she really became famous off of being just plain annoying. Not that eager to hear the rest of her five-tracks.
What about you?
