    Cool Rebecca Black - "Friday"/Debut Album Era

    So...Godbecca's legendary smash "Friday" has just passed 60 million in views on Youtube, beaten Justin Bieber featuring Ludacris' "Baby"'s most disliked record, goin' for its most discussed/commented record and is soaring on the all-time views chart. She also broke Britney Spears' record (with "Femme Fatale") for the longest trending 'object' (non-stop) on Twitter and is currently the #5 on the all-time trending tally. She's also reached as high as #15 on iTunes last Friday (an IMPROVEMENT over last last Friday) and is very likely to go higher on the Hot 100 (possibly to enter the Top 50). It's also charting in the United Kingdom, New Zealand (where it hits the Top 40 already). It's also Top 10 on UK Independent Chart, #2 on US Billboard Heatseeker Chart, and broke the record for highest debut on Buzz 100 on Billboard. She's also received praises from people like Lady GaGa, Chris Brown (could be a sacrastic one) and Simon Cowell.

    IMO, although the lyric to the track is pretty trashy, espcially the breakdown part, but the song itself is very catchy and I seriously don't think she's all that bad of a singer, considering what we have now (Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Rihanna etc.). Vocally I think her problem is so much 'nose' voice, she actually sounds pretty promising unplugged. She also sang a small part of the "Star-Spangled Banned/Nation Anthem" on Good Morning America and it was decent.

    On other news, rumor has it that her second single's gonna be called "L.O.L." and she will definitely be releasing a debut album. You can follow her on Twitter on @msrebeccablack for her latest news. Oh, and her dream duet partner would be Justin Bieber (and I heard that he sang a part of "Friday" during one of his concerts). Oh, and, I actually think the chorus to "Friday" resembles Bieber's "Baby" (which is his only song I like) A LOT! And of course its repeativeness can't even compare ("It's Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday" vs "Baby, baby, baby, oh; Baby, baby, baby, oh; Baby, baby, baby, oh") so I don't get how people are trashing Godbecca like she's the only one who's produced such music (and she did not even write or produce the track).

    #Godbecca4Life

    By the way, I think this coming Friday the track could actually reach Top 10 on iTunes and snatch Lady GaGa ("Born This Way", already passed her on Youtube views), Jennifer Lopez ("On The Floor" featuring Pitball), Katy Perry (+ Kanye West with "E.T."), Ke$ha ("Blow"), Adele ("Rolling In The Deep"), Britney Spears (already passed her, though), Chris Brown's wigs.

    lol people don't hate her because she's famous, she's famous because people hate her

    "friday" went viral because of how many popular music sites trashed it and dubbed it the worst song ever.

    Haha, I know. But I'm sayin' "Friday" is actually just as 'bad' as many of our current pop hits are, and she's not exactly the worst singer in the world.

    Btw,

    For those wondering if Rebecca Black's "Friday" moment in the sun has passed -- it hasn't. The tune jumps 57-38 on Digital Songs with 50,000 sold (up 35%).

    #GodbeccaGetsThat$

    She has no airplay, can it possibly give her a Top 50 placement? I believe it should be Top 60 though (last week it was at #72), espcially with massive streaming (up from 40 million to 60?) and Billboard counting Vevo views.

    This girl has a record deal?? Good lord, what in the world is happening here?? Her "Unplugged" performance was absolutely one of the worst I've ever heard. So sad in so many ways.

    The confirmed second single is rumored to be renamed "LOL" and reported to contain a line of lyric like "BFF you got me LOL" in the chorus.

    No she doesn't. She's working indepedently but obviously there will be interested labels as long as her 15 minutes haven't passed completely. Or she could simply pay Ark again to release an album for her. Or, better, simply releasing everything digitally off iTunes on her own a la "Friday".

    I finally caved and watched Rebecca's Friday video to see what everyone was talking about, and it was nearly 4 minutes of my life I'll never get back lol. What a terrible song! Her voice is so autotuned it's unbelievable. I can't believe this is what the music industry has come to, and that anyone would consider purchasing this song and supporting this nonsense when there are plenty of incredibly talented individuals who get no media attention and work hard to sell their music.
    The sad thing is that she will likely get a major label deal, and sell a ton of records.

    Which is the problem here. It's not illegal downloading that's ruining the music industry, but America supporting people like Rebbeca Black who are under the delusion that they can sing because people are buying their record to see what the fuss is about.

    It's times like this that I cannot believe people have the nerve to say crap about shows like American Idol, when they give TALENTED people a chance, who actually help the music industry, but taking a spot away from another talentless singer.

    ...Because 'voice' is always only a part of music instead of playing a dominant role in them. Of course I'm not sayin' "Friday" is anywhere remotely close to being considered an average piece of 'music', but still.

    I saw yesterday the narniafans page (think Cfans but Narnia) made an April fools joke that Beiber was singing the lead pop track for the next Narnia film, and that he and RB were the lead actors, lol...

    Also, yesterday comedian Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, and Taylor Hicks sang the song on Jimmy's show

    Which is also part of the problem. Not only can the girl not sing, but her natural voice doesn't even come through because of the layers of autotune. The attention she's getting is negative; is that enough for a record deal nowadays? It diminishes real talent.
