Rebecca Black’s Friday Gets a Sequel
Last year, 13 year-old teenager Rebecca Black became a YouTube sensation for all the wrong reasons, after her debut song ‘Friday’ was met with such a poor critical response that the video became a viral meme on the internet.
Patrice Wilson, the guy who is responsible for producing the video as well as writing those comically awful lyrics, has this week released the sequel song to Friday, with the one exception being that it doesn’t star the voice or appearance of Rebecca Black. Nope, instead the main vocals are done by Wilson himself, and a whole lot of auto-tune.
The six minute video begins with Wilson acting out his perspective of the backlash caused by Friday, including taking a humorous view on the weight gain and depression he admits to experiencing.
The actual music begins with Patrice continuing from where Black left off, Saturday. Yep, the entire song is dedicated to Saturday, and being ‘H.A.P.P.Y’.
The song is better than Friday in no doubt, but it still isn’t very good. Luckily as the song has been used as a way to poke fun at his previous work, Wilson probably won’t take the failure of this song to hard. It’s not bad or good enough to go viral.
