It was on September 16, 2011, when Rebecca Black‘s life changed forever. She was only 13 years old on that fateful day when the music video for her single “Friday” was first uploaded to YouTube. Not only did the auto-tuned jam totally become viral in what seemed like a blink of an eye, but it also quickly became center of any and all jokes at the time.
“I spent so long only feeling like I was this internet girl, this meme,” the singer later said in a 2017 interview. “Right now, I just want to get to a spot where people can refer to me as a musician, as a songwriter.”
Despite the negative backlash she received for her debut single, Rebecca didn’t hide from that experience. In fact, she did the total opposite. Rebecca has evolved into quite the artist with tons of exciting things going for her, and she has sure been up to a lot these days. Most recently, she dropped a song called “Do You?” — and it’s super raw and emotional, if we do say ourselves.
