A background artist who plays one of Rebecca Black's friends in her 'Friday' video has debuted her own single.

Benni Cinkle, who has become popular among online communities as 'that girl in pink' due to her appearance in the internet phenomenon video, has premiered 'Can You See Me Now'.

The 13-year-old has insisted that she wrote the track a whole year before 'Friday' became an online hit.

'Can You See Me Now' deals with teenage bullying, with Cinkle being an anti-bullying activist in the US.

However, the video was not made by Ark Music Factory, who were responsible for Black's 'Friday'. Instead, Cinkle has produced the video and track through Less Than Three Productions.

As of yet, internet users have taken to Cinkle's effort more kindly than Black's, as she has more 'likes' on YouTube than 'dislikes'.

The track follows reports that Rebecca Black had to be pulled out of school due to bullying after classmates taunted her because of her newfound fame.
