Have you heard your friends or random passer-byers singing these lyrics?
It’s Friday / Friday / Gonna get down on Friday
Everybody looking forward to the weekend / Weekend
It is probably because they can’t get the viral video song Friday by new found YouTube star Rebecca Black out of their head.
The song and video have reached over two million views but all for the wrong reasons. This super auto-tuned and obviously poorly written track has become the punch line to many a joke of people who can’t wait to play this song to start their weekend. So where did this new teen pop sensation come from?
Rebecca is a product of the Ark Music Factory. This production company holds casting calls for teen girls wanting to be pop stars. If you have what they are looking for, they fly you out to LA, and you record a song and a video. I looked it up and you should see some of the other videos they’ve produced. Yikes.
Kind of catchy, but so awful. If you want to check out more from the Ark Music Factory, click here.
