“Weren’t you the one who said that I would be nothing?” Rebecca Black asks at the beginning of her new single, “My Moment.” “Well, I’m about to prove you wrong.”
After becoming a viral sensation with the easy-to-mock music video for “Friday” last spring, the Ark Music Factory phenom has returned with an earnest mid-tempo pop song that reached YouTube on Monday afternoon (July 18).
The clip finds the 14-year-old Black basking in her newfound glory, as she attends movie premieres, takes pictures with fans and going shopping with friends. Although the lyrics to “My Moment” don’t feature anything as laughable as “Tomorrow is Saturday / And Sunday comes afterwards / I don’t want this weekend to end,” Black does offer a bit of vitriol to those who wrote her off as a one-hit Internet wonder. “Haters, said I’ll see you later/Can’t talk to you right now, I’m getting my paper,” Black sings with a sassy grin on her face.
“My Moment” precedes the release of a new five-track EP from Black that will be self-released next month. Black — who also co-starred in Katy Perry‘s “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” music video last month — earned 167 million YouTube views for “Friday” before it was pulled from the site for copyright reasons last month.
