Rebecca Black to Release ‘My Moment’ on July 18
She’s baaaaaack! Maligned YouTube sensation and web celeb Rebecca Black will release her next single, dubbed ‘My Moment,’ next week.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the follow up to ‘Friday’ will be released on July 18 — which is a Monday, mind you — at 8PM via the 14-year-old’s YouTube channel along with her official website. A day later, Blackholics can purchase the song via iTunes and other digital platforms.
‘My Moment’ was penned by the songwriting team of Brandon “Blue” Hamilton and Quinton Tolbert, the former of which has a credit on Justin Bieber‘s ‘Never Say Never: The Remixes.’ Charlton Pettus, a producer for Hilary Duff, twiddled the knobs for the track.
An official statement reveals that the video for the single will boast the singer receiving an award at her junior high school as well as attending red carpet premieres in effort to “tell the story of her sudden rise to fame.”
The video hopes to portray her moment as a “fairytale story,” but show that “it happened in real life.” Becks, that’s called 15 minutes of fame. You’re about 7 or so minutes into yours …
… Or maybe not.
Maybe Black has some legs, as she was featured in the video for Katy Perry‘s paean to teen life, ‘Last Friday Night,’ and her own ‘Friday’ video eventually amassed 167 million views on YouTube, making it the most played clip in the site’s history, surpassing even the Biebs’ videos. Lady Gaga also gave Black a shout out, too.
In addition to ‘My Moment,’ Black is readying a five-track EP, which she will self-release in August.
In all seriousness, though, we can’t wait to see what lyrical direction Black goes in with ‘My Moment’ now that she has some new life experiences under her belt, other than deciding where to sit in the car and what to do on Friday night.
