Wiki

"Friday" is a song written by Clarence Jey and Patrice Wilson, and performed by Rebecca Black, a 13-year-old American singer. It was released as a single on March 14, 2011. "Friday" was produced by the ARK Music Factory, a company owned by Jey and Wilson.

The music video for the song became a viral hit, mostly due to negative reaction towards the lyrics, visuals and use of Auto-Tune to Black's singing, starting on Friday, March 11, 2011, when the video's view count on YouTube jumped from around 3,000 views to 18 million a week later. As of March 28, 2011 (2011 -03-28), the view count was over 60 million and the video had over 950,000 comments. The catalyst for the sudden surge was attributed to a Tosh.0 blog post titled "Songwriting Isn't for Everyone", posted on March 11. Since the growth in popularity of the song and video, there have been numerous parody videos and remixes. Forbes stated that the notoriety of the song is another sign of the power of social media – specifically Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr, in this instance – in the ability to create "overnight sensations." Despite the poor reviews, celebrities such as Chris Brown and Simon Cowell have supported Black.
