Rebecca Black's acoustic 'We Can't Stop' cover: Listen
A song by viral video star Rebecca Black that won’t make your ears bleed? A song by viral video star Rebecca Black that is, in fact, supremely pleasant, well-sung, and catchy?
Well, now I’ve heard everything.
For real, though: Black has clearly come a long way from “Friday.” (Which makes sense, since it’s Tuesday.) Like her infamous first single, this gentle, acoustic cover of Miley Cyrus’s “We Can’t Stop” — a duet between Black and “Jon D.,” her shaggy-haired guitar player — is a serious earworm. But unlike “Friday,” it’s the type of tune you won’t mind having in your head all day long… or all week… or all of 2011. Theoretically.
It seems that Black finally made her mind up about which seat she’ll take — the one that doesn’t come with terrible production values and a nasal, Autotuned whine. Though if she wants to do the Miley thing right, she might want to invest in a skull made of french fries.
