Iconic internet personality Rebecca Black has opened up a new chapter in her career as she paves her way as a pop star with the release of her debut studio album, Let Her Burn, available to stream now HERE.
Let Her Burn
The dynamic album opens with track “Erase You,” sharing a new side of Black to listeners as she blends pop motifs with futuristic electronic production. “Crumbs” — the introductory single from Let Her Burn — follows Rebecca as she explores the vulnerability brought upon by her journey to find balance amongst submission, dominance and sexuality.
Pop-driven hits “Destroy Me” and “Misery Loves Company” offer a deeper and darker side to the artist, sultry “Doe Eyed” delivers an upbeat anthem and “Sick To My Stomach” bares Black’s soul on the ballad for broken hearts.
“Not lying when I say I’ve spent about half my life dreaming of this day,” Black captioned an Instagram post on the day of the project’s release. “It’s almost unreal to wake up and see it finally here. Seeing so many of you listening already and talking about your favorites … I don’t know if I’d ever be able to articulate to my 13 year old self just how sweet this warmth feels. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

While Rebecca saw a wild amount of fame and attention for her megahit “Friday” that took the world by storm in 2011, various challenges arose that pushed back the release of a full-length album until now — despite the long wait being worth it for the star.
“I know looking back that, as an 18-year-old, as a 16-year-old, as a 23-year-old, I was desperate to put out a full-length album,” the singer shared on the project’s release in an interview with NPR. “Especially as somebody who enjoys music and is so interested in music culture as I am, I have always died to express myself in that way … but as an independent artist for a long time, it was hard to convince anybody that it was even worth it for me to do that. Of course, I guess I could have just put out something on SoundCloud and called it a day. But I knew that I wanted to do something that was bigger than that.”
She continued, “So as much as I would have loved to say I was ready to do this, the last few years have been the most important creative years of my life. Because I finally believed that I could do it, and knew what I had to say.”
