“I’d had the idea to do this remix of ‘Friday’ for years leading up to now, but honestly it was also mildly insane for me to think anyone else would want to be a part of it,” Black explained in a statement. “As I started talking about it with other artists and producers, I couldn’t believe how stoked people were about it. I am thrilled to have some of my favorite artists (and people) as a part of this moment.”

“Missed opportunity not to have this drop at 7am,” one fan told the singer. 

“LETS GOOOOOOOOOO,” another wrote. 

“Honestly this is such a serve we love a queen that leans into the meme,” a third fan said.

“People were writing things all over the internet, on social media and they were laughing at me on TV shows, and making fun of me in YouTube videos. It was open season and I was the target.

Black made the video with Ark Music Factory in Los Angeles, Calif., after a classmate made a music video and didn’t think many people would see it. Black told Slate that when the video went viral for all the wrong reasons, Ark offered to delete it. 

“God knows why, but I said no,” the Youtuber said. “I think something told me, ‘Ugh, if you do that, then everybody else wins, and you’ve just immediately given up any sort of little bit of power you had.’”

Earlier this year, Black released “Girlfriend” which is about bumping into an ex at a protest and then briefly getting back together after Black came out as queer in 2020.
