Ten years ago today, the world was forever changed thanks to a girl named Rebecca Black.
Children and teens all over North America began torturing their parents by singing along to what was then dubbed by many as “the worst song ever.” The song? Friday.

In celebration of the single turning ten, Black has released a hyper-pop remix featuring Dorian Electra, Big Freedia, and 3OH!3.
The new take on the song semi-parodies her original tune, with additional verses and heavy autotune — this time, very intentional.
Black also debuts a much more adult-like image, dressed in a leather-looking unitard, fishnets, blue braided hair, and spikey accessories. She is also taking the driver’s seat this time, which could be a nod to her going viral on her own terms.
Here are the two videos for you to compare for yourself:
Twitter seems to be loving Black’s 2021 comeback. Here are some reactions to the icon reclaiming her song:
