Playlist in action

27 February 2016

Now this seems ingenious. Rebecca Black (yes, that Rebecca Black) has regularly released her Spotify playlists to her not-inconsiderable fanbase; this week, she’s actually put together a video in which she features some of her faves.

The complete playlist, if you’re a Spotify user, is here.

27 November 2013

My introduction to came from, of all people, Rebecca Black. Then again, the young lady who turned “Friday” into an earworm has been known to surprise people. (See, for instance, her cover of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball.”)

RB’s ten-track November ’13 mix opens with Heavy English’s debut single “21 Flights” and continues with “Come a Little Closer” from Cage the Elephant’s Melophobia album. That should give you enough reason to check out the rest of it.
