Rebecca Black to Release New Single, "My Moment"
First a starring role in Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night" video, now a brand spanking new single called "My Moment"! Rebecca Black's follow up to her hit (?) "Friday" debuts July 18. Apparently the 14-year-old YouTube star is also finishing a five-song EP that should be out in August. No word yet on whether the new song will be death-threat-worthy, but we're pretty sure Black is hoping for even half the success of her video "Friday" which, before it was pulled off YouTubem was the most played Youtube clip of all time, with more than 167 million views. According to the Hollywood Reporter, "My Moment" will debut on Black's Youtube channel and her official site, RebeccaBlackOnline.com at 8 p.m. on July 18. The song will be available for purchase on iTunes and other online retailers the next day.
Written by Brandon "Blue" Hamilton, whose credits included a track on Justin Bieber's Never Say Never: The Remixes, and Quinton Tolbert and produced by Charlton Pettus (Tears for Fears, Hilary Duff), its accompanying video features footage of Black receiving an award at her junior high school and attending red carpet premieres to "tell the story of her sudden rise to fame," according to a statement. "It's a fairytale story, but it happened in real life."
