About Rebecca Black

Sure, we all remember the viral sensation that was “Friday,” but Rebecca Black has grown out of the more childish side of music, releasing her hit single “The Great Divide” in 2016 partially because “she just wanted to prove everybody wrong.” She succeeded, getting positive reviews for her seeming u-turn into serious pop music, not to mention over 2.5M views of the YouTube video. It is hard to overstate how different this Rebecca Black is from the one we met in 2011. But her many vlogs prove that she’s the same goofy girl, who shows her 1.3M+ subscribers how to “GET READY WITH ME” in her series of makeup and fashion videos, and shares her favorite music obsessions with “These Songs WILL Change Your Life!”
