Rebecca Black is back — and she’s brought a friend!
While zombie apocalypses have been in vogue this year, we seem to have forgotten that there still exists an as-yet-unvanquished threat to our sanity: Black, the 16-year-old viral video star who became a buzzy (perhaps a light way of putting it) overnight sensation in 2011 with her so-bad-it’s-bad music video “Friday”, has returned with a follow-up song that picks up, well, exactly where her previous calendar-related musical entry ended. Black is joined by fellow YouTube star Dave Days, who has built a very respectable reputation for himself with his parodies and covers of popular songs.
“Saturday” finds Black and her entire partying-partying-yeah! crew picking up the messy pieces of a crazy Friday night fete, replete with discarded solo cups, passed-out teenagers aplenty, and a portable poker set that’s oh so askew. Soon, the kids hit the beach and throw another house party, singing their hearts out about their big weekend plans: ”This Saturday we gonna party all night/ one we will remember for the rest of our lives./This Saturday we gonna do it bigger than/ we ever have before, I don’t want this Saturday to end!/ I don’t want this Saturday to end!”
