Patrice Wilson is the man who wrote “Friday,” the infamous single that put Rebecca Black on the musical map. And, as you might imagine, he took a lot of flak for penning such a ridiculous anthem.

The controversial teenager – best known for what many consider to the worst track in the history of recorded music – will be all over the news again this week because her latest song, “Sing It,” gets released tomorrow on iTunes.
That familiar voice/It speaks to me/Tells me everything is gonna be ok/It’s meant to, meant to be… Sun is out/ And the darkness fades/Got my headphones on and I’m under/In a dream but I’m wide awake, sings Black over the course of verses that actually don NOT sound overly auto-tuned.

Wow. Kids can be so cruel, can’t they?
