Rebecca Black, 'Next Bieber' & singer of 'worst song ever', has the world talking but at least, it has made her a millionaire
A couple of weeks ago, Rebecca Black was a relatively an unknown thirteen year-old American. But things have changed when she sang her heart out for a song that says Fridays come after Thursdays and that tomorrow is a Sunday if today was a Saturday.
‘Silly’ as it may sound as millions of listeners have agreed after downloading what is now considered the worst song ever written, Black’s first single has now made her a millionaire. And the teen singer could be saying now, ‘thank God, it’s Friday’ that she braved herself singing for her first video.
“Friday’ went viral in the last couple of weeks, now raking in approximately 30 million views on its official video on YouTube. The teen singer, now being compared to Canadian teen sensation, Justin Bieber, has dwarfed not only Selena Gomez’s beau’s video on YouTube, but also the ones performed by Lady Gaga.
But Friday has earned Rebecca some cruel criticisms not only for the lyrics but by the manner in which the story line of the video has been laid out.
Playing back the video [click here for the video], and putting the lyrics of the whole song aside, an interesting sequence that have put everyone off of Black’s first video is that footage of Rebecca standing by the bus stop while her lyrics goes as ‘her friends coming over to pick her up for school’. This sequence alone has raised questions like why would the writer come up with a sequence with Rebecca standing and waiting for her friends at the bus stop if her lyrics were saying her friends were coming to pick her up for school.
This and many other questions have intensified more curiosity among the viewers after the Friday, created by Ark Music Factory, has been uploaded to YouTube barely over a month ago.
And the song has made her a millionaire after it hits online store Monday.
According to Defamer.com.au., Black’s “Friday” has already raked in an astounding number of downloads from iTunes. The website sad that it has now recorded over 2 million downloads.
