Don’t call it a comeback, but here’s a name you haven’t heard in a while: Rebecca Black.
First bursting onto the viral scene in 2010, with the cheesy-bad single “Friday,” Black spent the weekend once again heating up Google searches; thanks to the debut of her appropriately titled follow-up — “Saturday.” The video has amassed more than 8 million views since its premiere on Dec. 7.
The South Korean rapper’s hit single, “Gangnam Style,” has become the first YouTube video to surpass one billion views. The official promo has hit the milestone just five months after it became one of the signature songs of summer. Just this week, “Gangnam Style” was also named the top trending YouTube video of 2012.
