Fix this. Whoever wrote it is a moron.[edit]

Background

A client of Ark Music Factory, a Los Angeles record label, told her Black about the company's production services in late 2010;— Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.161.27.88 (talk) 00:57, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done - sort of. a_man_alone (talk) 14:09, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Wrong info[edit]

It says Friday (single) was released under Ark Music Factory but it wasn't. It was under her own label. http://www.amazon.com/Friday/dp/B004S5JBZ8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1313651337&sr=8-1 --86.60.203.164 (talk) 22:36, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Can you come up with a better source than amazon? Ark and RB had some legal battle, I believe.--Milowenthasspoken 02:03, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
While she now claims ownership, it was indeed initially released under Ark. -- Zanimum (talk) 00:19, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
Have to disagree with you there. The music video was released by Ark on Youtube, yes, but not the single. I will try to find some other sources tomorrow, but I really do not think it's possible for her to release it under her label, and sell it under her label unless she owns the track. --86.60.203.164 (talk) 23:52, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
What about if, in the label field, we said See Controversy, below. That would defer people to the issue. -- Zanimum (talk) 18:22, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
I think that'd be the best way to do it? --86.60.203.164 (talk) 16:13, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Does anyone object to the above suggestion? If not, the change will be made in two days from this post. -- Zanimum (talk) 19:24, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

New version/remix[edit]

The original version with the rap verse is nowhere to be found anymore. Should this be pointed out? The length of this version is 3:30. CyberTootie (talk) 03:52, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

Who is the rapper?[edit]

Late in the video a rapper takes part in the video. Does anyone know who it is? Jason Harvestdancer | Talk to me 17:24, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

It's a little hidden: "Patrice Wilson appears near the end of the song to deliver a short rap." He was the songwriter/producer. -- Zanimum (talk) 22:13, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

YouTube viewers?[edit]

So how much this has had viewers? It is said to have had 167 million when it was taken off, and it currently has 73 million viewers. That is 240 million total, or is there any other numbers to count in? 82.141.117.187 (talk) 12:00, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
