The committee that books the artists to play at Movin’ On made a last minute decision yesterday when they decided to replace O.A.R. with the new Youtube star Rebecca Black. Her new hit single “Friday” dropped on Youtube last week, has almost has 11 million views and has hit the iTunes Top 100. Her monotonous lyrics and heavy use of auto tune really caught the ear of many people this week. Not to mention her reinforcement that Thursday comes before Friday, Saturday comes after Friday and Sunday after that. When we spoke to Penn State sophomore Stacy Evans she was pleasantly surprised.
“I can really relate to her lyrics, especially as a college student. I share the same exact seating problem every time I walk into class. There are people always kickin’ it in the front and people sittin’ in the back. Which seat can I take? It’s like Rebecca Black read my mind.”
Movin’ On turned down offers from Kid Cudi, Vampire Weekend, and The White Panda. “Booking Rebecca Black was a no brainer after I saw her video for the first time.” a representative from Movin’ On said. “The way she reinforced the days of the week was just phenomenal. We so excited here at Movin’ On!” They even changed the day of the show to fit the song. “We purposely moved the event from Saturday to Friday to give the show more excitement.”
The event will take place on April 29th, which ironically is a Friday, on the IM Field next to Beaver Stadium. Artists Lupe Fiasco and Little Big Town will be opening for the 13 year old singing sensation.
