Rebecca Black Has Dropped A Remix Of 'Friday' For Its 10 Year Anniversary
Remember Rebecca Black's divisive earworm 'Friday'? Somehow the song turns ten years old this week - although it doesn't feel like it can possibly be that old.
Still, in honour of the banger, Black has decided to release a new remix.
Writing on Twitter, the singer said: "Surprise this week FRIDAY turns 10 AND has gone GOLD. Seen cooking up a very special remix featuring some iconic people...........it drops on the 10 year anniversary TOMORROW NIGHT @ MIDNIGHT."
The 23-year-old has teamed up with Big Freedia, Dorian Electra and 3OH!3 to sing vocals on the remix and has enlisted the help of Dylan Brady to produce it.
People were pretty impressed by the line-up and it looks like Twitter simply can't wait for the new version of the song to be released.
One person tweeted: "This is too much to comprehend."
Another added: "The features!! I cannot wait."
A third wrote: "this is a defining moment for the future of music... it will never be the same after this."

The song wasn't universally adored on its original release, it's safe to say, and recently Black has opened up about the bullying and hate she received in its wake, admitting at the time that she felt 'completely overwhelmed'.
A decade ago 'Friday' made the then-13 year-old one of the most talked-about new singers in the world, although not all of the commentary was positive.
The video for the song was streamed more 30 million times on YouTube in the first month of release and it climbed to number one on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.
But she quickly found herself subjected to online hate comments, and even death threats.
"I just remember being completely overwhelmed and not knowing what to do with it," Black recalled in an interview with VT. "I was really too young to understand it so a lot of it has been understood in hindsight."
Black only publicly came to terms with how the attention of keyboard warriors affected her as a child in an Instagram post a year ago, saying her 13-year-old self was 'terribly ashamed of herself and afraid of the world' and that she felt depression that she was unable to talk to anyone else about'.
Now she says she's tougher when it comes to online comments, adding: "I think there's a very traditional storyline of somebody going through a lot of adversity and them becoming tougher or them becoming stronger or having a thick skin.
"I have developed a thicker skin, I guess. But I don't think that that is what really helped me grow from it. I think it was learning to accept my vulnerability that made me a stronger person."
