Is Rebecca Black the new cover queen?

The infamous singer who has engraved in our brains that we "gotta get down on Friday" has come back with yet another musical creation (well, kinda).

Black teamed up with fellow singer Jon D. for an acoustic cover of Miley Cyrus' latest single "We Can't Stop" which she dropped on—yep, you guessed it—Friday.

Being only 16 years old, Black decided to modify some of Cyrus' lyrics (specifically the parts talking about strip clubs and cocaine) to make the cover more of a G-rated pop hit.

But what might surprise you is that it doesn't suck. Seriously.

Rebecca has come a long way from her "Friday" days, and the harmonizing between her and Jon D. is quite exquisite (yeah, we didn't think we'd use that word in this type of article either).

However, it's not a complete shock for those who have followed Black's recent work.

In April, she released a cover of Rihanna's "Stay," along with fellow YouTuber Dave Days, which debuted Black's new (and much better) sound.

Nearly two years ago, Black opened up to ABC's Primetime Nightline about her decision to drop out of school because of constant bullying following her first viral YouTube video.

Black explained that classmates would taunt her by asking what day it was or by singing the tune "in a nasally voice."

Home-schooling didn't end the massive number of death threats and horrible comments Rebecca received each day, but the she didn't let that get the best of her.

"I've had a lot of experience with not being liked and all that," she said. "I think if I hadn't had to deal with that in the past then I totally would have handled this differently and I would have gone down in burning flames. But I've learned that you just can't let it get to you."
