Rebecca Black is not just a musical sensation, she’s an internet legend. Dropping a debut studio album, Let Her Burn, on Feb. 9, Black told Passionfruit in an interview that multiple songs on the album were inspired by lessons learned as a creator throughout her many eras online.

Beyond her “Friday” backstory, Black is truly a conqueror of internet culture. Aside from her original music, she became a successful YouTuber with over a million followers—posting vlogs, Q&As, and stripped-back song covers in her early days. She then quickly climbed the ladders of TikTok, Twitter, and Instagram, amassing millions of followers who tune in for her latest takes on trends.
