The 23-year-old singer dropped a glitched-out remix that also features Dorian Electra and 100 Gecs' Dylan Brady on the 10th anniversary of her ultra-viral debut.
Ten years ago today, the world met then-13-year-old Rebecca Black. They watched as she woke up at 7:00 a.m., had some cereal, waited for a bus and contemplated which seat she should take in her friend's car. Now, Black is ready to revisit her debut and remake it into a modern pop anthem.
On Wednesday (Feb. 10), Black dropped her "Friday Remix," a glitched-out, star-studded revision to her 2011 viral hit "Friday" on the original's 10th anniversary. Produced by Dylan Brady of 100 Gecs and featuring new vocals from Big Freedia, 3OH!3 and Dorian Electra, the new song morphs the original's simple pop aesthetic into a hyperpop overload. The official video arrived a few hours later.
Black's original vocals are distorted and pitched-up to the point where they're hardly recognizable, while Brady laces the track with a pounding bass kick and pixellated synth line to give it a fresh, modern refurbishing. Electra joins in on the fun, giving the "story" from the original a sight detour; "It's 7:45, we're driving on the highway/ I got this, you got this, my friend is by my right, aye," they sing.
