The 23-year-old teamed up with Big Freedia, Dorian Electra, 3OH!3 and Dylan Brady to revamp the track. 

The "Friday" remix dropped yesterday but the music video will premiere on YouTube at midday on Wednesday, February 10.

"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.

Black was only 13 years old when the original version of “Friday” was released in 2011 and was heavily criticized and branded "the worst song ever."

"The onslaught of negative attention I received was so sudden and so intense that I wasn’t sure I would survive," Black recalled to NBC News in 2017.

"One minute, I was a normal girl and then, in the next, millions of people know who I was and they were ruthless in hurling the most vile words my way.

"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. The fact that there was a human, a person — a 13-year-old girl — on the other side of the screen seemingly escaped so many people’s attention."

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.'"

Months later, Katy Perry invited her to star in her music video for "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)," and Black released "Saturday" two years later to poke fun at the iconic track. 

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.
