Rebecca Black’s got a new single coming, and no, it has nothing to do with a day of the week.
The 14-year-old – whose name became inescapable after she starred in the music video for the song the Internet loved to hate – will drop a new track called “My Moment” on July 18 at 8:00 p.m. on her YouTube channel and website, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Brandon "Blue" Hamilton (who penned a track on Justin Bieber's "Never Say Never: The Remixes") and Quinton Tolbert wrote the song, about the teen's rapid climb to stardom.
The music video for "My Moment" will show Black getting an award at her junior high school and hitting red carpet events. As a statement puts it, "It's a fairytale story, but it happened in real life."
If you like what you hear, the song will be available on iTunes and e-retailers the following day.
“My Moment” is just the warm-up for Black – she's also set to self-release a five-track EP in August, bypassing signing with a label.
