Rebecca Black – Friday UPDATE Black is already a millionaire

Posted by iusbvision on March 18, 2011

UPDATE – Forbes reports that 13 year old pop sensation Rebecca Black already a millionaire. Black’s catchy tune “Friday” crushed the iTunes top 100 netting Ms. Black over $1.4million, not including YouTube ad revenue sharing on her video which has netted over 31 million views. Black is still accelerating on the iTunes top 100 chart.


What a charming first video for a 13 year old girl who had a dream and took a risk.

The video went viral.

Ms. Black comes across as charming and approachable. The production value of the video is pretty good especially considering the budget used. I wish her well. Let us hope that the coming attention and money does not exceed her character.

ARK Music Factory made this clever rap remix of the song. It is quite good.

The critics are done. The word is in. Simon Cowell loves the song.
