Rebecca Black Has Dropped A New Single And It's Actually Pretty Good

​The former child singer has returned to the music industry with an EDM-inspired single that's a million miles away from her 'Friday' years

Phrases and words that have been ruined by pop music:

'Hello' (Adele)

'Question' (Destiny's Child)

'What time is it?' (Chico) 

The worst of all? Friday.

Before the Spring of 2011, the word 'Friday' was synonymous with post-work drinks, half-hearted attempts to work and a chance to pig out on burritos at lunch with colleagues because 'after all, it's practically the weekend'. 

But a 13-year-old Californian singer called Rebecca Black ruined the precious word when her video for her single 'Friday' went viral on Youtube (with over 99 million views to date) and scarred humanity for life.

If you skip past the first minute of Black gushing about her patient fans, her rock-chick hand gestures and the sickening background piano music, you finally get to hear her new EDM-inspired music.

Gone are the cheesy rhymes and faux leather jackets – the 19-year-old can be seen walking through a smokey warehouse sporting shorter brown hair, smokey eyeshadow, double denim and a lot of hair swishes while her Demi Lovato/Ellie Goulding/Katy Perry'esque song plays in the background. 

And it looks like Black's fans are equally impressed with her new musical direction:
