Over 442,000 copies of her debut song, “Friday,” were sold in the US alone. After two weeks of release, the song reached its highest position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at Rank #58. She’s thought to be connected to ARK Music Factory. Her involvement in some of the ARK Music Factory controversies has made her a hot topic in the media. The popular video was taken down, but it was uploaded again and has since received almost 240,000,000 views. Since she was young, she has enjoyed singing and dancing. Her mother, in particular, has given her singing career strong encouragement. She is a frequent user of social networking sites, particularly Twitter, where she enjoys using the platform to express herself.

Early Childhood & Life

On June 21, 1997, in Irvine, California, Rebecca Renee Black was given the name Rebecca Black. John Jeffery Black and Georgina Marquez Kelly, both of her parents, are veterinarians. She is of Italian, English, Mexican, and Polish ancestry.

Through the sixth grade, she spent her early years in a private school. She transferred to a public school where she actively participated in the musical theater program after leaving a private school because of bullying. She claimed that joining the program made her feel like she was meant to be in musical theater.

Later, though, she stopped attending since she was being homeschooled and because her classmates were constantly making fun of her. She was able to focus more on her career as a result. She failed her English class as a result of her busy schedule, which was another factor.

Rebecca Black’s Career

With the release of her first single, “Friday,” Rebecca’s career began. She worked along with the ARK Song Factory to record the music video. Her mother encouraged her to create the film and gave ARK $4000 to help. After being posted on YouTube, the film received 1000 views in its first month. However, it later became popular and received a ton of views and subscribers.

Later, in early 2011, she was chosen by MTV to host the first-ever online awards program, O Music Awards Fan Army Party. She went on to release a number of other songs, including “My Moment,” “Person of Interest,” “Sing It,” and “In Your Words.”

She was sent to Australia by Telstra in 2012 as their ambassador to advertise their 4G service. In the same year, she also joined Maker Studios YouTube Network.

She and Dave Days released the follow-up to “Friday” before the end of 2013. It was referred to as Saturday. In the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Saturday peaked at position #55. But it didn’t remain there for more than a week.

She posted a lot of covers on her YouTube account after “Saturday.” We Can’t Stop, Wrecking Ball, and Wild were a few of them. In the 2012 documentary “Katy Perry: Part of Me,” she portrayed herself. A 3D autobiographical documentary about Katy Perry was presented here.

In the animated movie “Legend of a Rabbit” in 2013, she provided the voice for the character “Penny.” Later, in 2014, she was chosen to play herself in the web series “Fine Brothers.” She portrayed herself in the web series “Life after Friday” in 2016.

She stated that she had been working on an album since the release of “Friday” and that it would be released in 2015. After “Saturday,” she didn’t release an album or even a single. But she made a comeback in 2016 with the release of “The Great Divide,” which was followed by “Foolish” in 2017.

Rebecca’s Bigger Works

“Friday,” Rebecca’s debut song, is her most well-known composition. In association with ARK Music Factory, this video was made public. Later, there were disputes about the song’s ownership rights. The film was taken down from ARK’s YouTube page after legal arguments between The Blacks and the company over it. Rebecca later posted it on her own channel. In 2015, there were around 240,000,000 views in total.

She released “Saturday” after “Friday,” her lone single to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. It is “Friday’s” follow-up. Even higher on the list, it attained positions.

Rebecca’s Individual Life

After Friday’s release, Rebecca received death threats via phone calls and emails. She frequently feels harassed online. She did have Lady Gaga and Simone Cowell’s support, though. She has been dancing since she was a young child and enjoys it.

Estimated Net Worth

Rebecca Black is a singer and YouTuber from the United States. Her estimated net worth is $500,000. She rose to popularity in 2011 as a result of her highly mocked and derided hit song, “Friday.” Her net worth didn’t come easily because she had to endure a year or two of being considered the laughingstock of America.
