Rebecca Black Takes Vocal Lessons, Covers Rihanna’s ‘Stay’

Perhaps we have not heard much from Rebecca Black since her song “Friday” went viral back in 2011 but don’t worry — she is back with something new.

Ms. Black, alongside fellow YouTube personality Dave Days, covers Rihanna’s “Stay,” featuring Mikky Ekko. The video was uploaded on Thursday afternoon (Apr 18) and is already spreading across the web.

From Rebecca’s cover, one thing I must admit is that her voice has gone through some changes and it sounding better than ever! Frankly, anything sounds better than that cacophonous ”Friday,” butI really think she sounds…good.

Clearly, Rebecca has invested in some type of vocal lessons and I’d say it was money well-spent. I think she actually sounds pretty close to Rihanna. :)

Doesn't matter what we think. She made straight bank last time, and she can use the money she made to break in. Props to her.

Mine too, but I still think she'll forever be known by the general public as the girl who sang the comically awful song.

If she wants the fame, she needs another Friday. Being a typical singer won't get you far.

Yeah, because she really is quite diversified to be unique in the proverbial sea of performers.

One of the comments said that she was really good during the national anthem.

People were way too vicious to her for a thirteen year old girl or however old she was when she released Friday. I feel bad for how badly she was bullied.

She may have a long way to go, but it shows what hard work does because this cover is miles better than what she did before. Great she had the confidence to stick with what she liked doing. :)

Well, if memory serves me right, she already had a vocal coach during her Friday era and that music video was just something fun that her parents gave to her as a present.

It's not like her voice was ever awful. She was just young and untrained.

Friday was awful because the song was an inane piece of garbage - not because of her voice.

Pretty good voice. I wonder if it was auto-tuned.

Now continue wasting that ability on trying to be a pop-shitter. :P

This girl went to school with my niece and the were in choir together in middle school. She has a good voice and was apparently a very nice person. Shame she had to drop out of public school because of the ordeal. People tend to forget when making fun of her that she was very young and vulnerable and it probably scarred her deeply. Hopefully she can get a real career out of it one day.
