  • 10 years ago, Rebecca Black released her song "Friday."
  • "Friday" was mocked online when it first came out, but quickly became a sensation.
  • Black just released an anniversary remix featuring buzzy music stars.

10 years ago, Rebecca Black became a household name with her song "Friday." The autotuned track was mocked online at the time of release, quickly launching the then-13-year-old into the public eye - and becoming a nightmare scenario for Black, she later said.

Black has now returned to music, releasing songs with themes about LGBTQ love, self-destructive tendencies, and more. For the 10th anniversary of "Friday," Black released a remix of the original track, which mixes a hyperpop take on her tween singing and features Dorian Electra, Big Freedia, and 3OH!3.

The new "Friday" remix is also produced by Dylan Brady, one-half of the buzzy hyperpop duo 100 Gecs. It's clear that the genre, which is an absurdist, maximalist take on pop music, has had an impact on Black's sound. The new "Friday" would fit in well at a dark nightclub or on a pump-up playlist.
