Meet Alison Gold, tipped to be the "new Rebecca Black."

Rebecca Black is the teenage songstress behind the song Friday - a tormenting pop ode to the final day of the school week. 

Alison Gold's song, made by the same songwriter, Patrice Wilson, is called Chinese Food, and appears to be a one-up of Friday on all counts.

In the track, she diligently works her way through a Chinese restaurant menu, itemising what she loves.

Some notable lyrics include: "Chinese food takes away my stress," and "you like it cause it's beautiful, and it tastes so so good."

Arguably the best moment is 58 seconds in, when she makes it rain to the rhythm of her singing "I love Chow mein, chow mo-mo-mo-mo mein".

Gold's video on youtube is marching on towards 8 million views after being loaded four days ago.

She is part of the Ark Music Factory stable, along with Rebecca Black.
