It's been almost a decade since Rebecca Black became an overnight sensation with the track 'Friday'. Ever since she became an unintentional internet sensation, the singer's fans have been begging for a throwback - and today's their lucky day.

Giving the pop song a ukulele make-over, the singer posted a video on TikTok saying: "Okay! Okay! But only because you asked nicely."
She then launches into the rendition which, despite using the same lyrics, honestly sounds like a completely different track.
Although her career is booming, Rebecca has been outspoken about the mental health issues she suffered as a result of her stardom.
'Friday' may have became a viral sensation upon its release in 2011, but it was described as 'bizarre', 'inept' and even 'the worst song ever'. Things got so bad that the singer even received death threats.
During her appearance on reality competition show The Four: Battle for Stardom, the young star opened up about her experience.
She said: "After it went on the internet, it blew up in the blink of an eye. The hate comments were everywhere. No one can prep you for that kind of thing.
"There is something so brutal when you're 13, about people telling you don't belong here.
"There was definitely a moment where I got really close to giving up on my music. You should never let anyone tell you what you love to do is wrong."

Rebecca battled against the trolls and haters and continues to enjoy success as a singer and YouTuber.
More recently, she posted a heartfelt message to her followers on Instagram to discuss the topic of mental health.
The 23-year-old wrote back in February: "[Nine] years ago today a music video for a song called 'Friday' was uploaded to the internet.
"Above all things, I just wish I could go back and talk to my 13-year-old self who was terribly ashamed of herself and afraid of the world.
"To my 15-year-old self who felt like she had nobody to talk to about the depression she faced.
"To my 17-year-old self who would get to school only to get food thrown at her and her friends.
"To my 19-year-old self who had almost every producer/songwriter tell me they'd never work with me.
"Hell, to myself a few days ago who felt disgusting when she looked in the mirror!
"I'm trying to remind myself more and more that every day is a new opportunity to shift your reality and lift your spirit.
"You are not defined by any one choice or thing. Time heals and nothing is finite.
"It's a process that's never too late to begin. And so, here we go! This might be a weird thing to post but the honesty feels good if nothing else."
