YouTube star Rebecca Black is back with Saturday (it's a sequel to Friday, see?)
Rebecca Black's back with Saturday (it's a sequel to Friday see?)
It’s the moment someone, somewhere was waiting for: Rebecca Black has released a sequel to her song “Friday”.
The track builds on the days-of-the-week theme and is called “Saturday”, with its video clocking up over 3 million views in a day.
Tweeting the link to the video, Rebecca said: "IT IS HERE. YES. THE OFFICIAL SEQUEL TO FRIDAY. I PRESENT TO YOU, SATURDAY."
In a parody of her 2011 video for Friday, which currently has 61 million YouTube views, Rebecca eats cereal from a dish with “gotta have my bowl” written across it.
Attempting to present a cooler image, she and her onscreen friends don sunglasses at a Skins-like party where they gather around a twerking Miley Cyrus lookalike, take selfies, play poker, and drink from red plastic cups: synonymous in America with college parties.
The video also dips into 1980s pop culture as one of the revellers dances in black sunglasses and a white shirt like Tom Cruise in Risky Business.
Following up on the chorus from "Friday," where Black croons that "Everybody's looking forward to the weekend," her new song features the lyrics, "I don't want this Saturday to end."
The song is a less nasal offering in comparison to Friday, and also sees the 16-year-old perform a brief rap.
On Black Friday, the teen posted a reaction video to her original song in which she cringes and bops along to the chorus.
The 2011 song is beaten only by Justin Beiber’s Baby as the most disliked video on YouTube, with 1,220,000 users clicking ‘dislike’. Miley Cyrus’ We Can’t Stop comes in third.
The bullying the teenagers suffered for her first song in 2011 meant she decided to be home-schooled.
At the time, she said: "When I walk by they'll start singing 'Friday' in a really nasally voice. Or, you know, they'll be like, 'Oh hey, Rebecca, guess what day it is?'"
Her mother said that the family hired a bodyguard to protect her daughter.
Rebecca found fame after her parents paid $4000 for a production company to film a pop video for the then 13-year-old.
Internet users can only guess at if or when "Sunday" will be released.
