If you caught the little gem that is Rebecca Black's Friday (and if you haven't yet, you've probably been using the internet wrong), you've likely wondered "who-in-the-what-in-the-HUH?", but wait... there's more. Yes, there's more autotuning, fake backgrounds, questionably written lyrics, cheesy special effects, random spurts of Ebonics, and creepy older rapper goodness from where that came from.
You'd think that with these prepubescent and teenaged girls' parents shelling out $2000 a pop, Ark Studios would put a little more thought into their songs and maybe even throw in voices lessons when necessary. But no.
From the studio that brought you such inspiration lyrics as Yesterday was Thursday (Thurday)/Today is Friday (Friday)/[...]/Tomorrow is Saturday/And Sunday comes afterward (actually, this sounds more like it was written for small children or ESL students to learn the most important days of the week), I present to you, Ark Studio's other gems.
(Tosh.0 was right -- songwriting isn't for everyone.)
Cute video, but it's not a good sign when you can't tell which has more autotuning -- this, or Rebecca Black's Friday. Creepy, much older, random rapper makes another appearance, rapping "Oh, wouldn't you help me with my grades?"
This video's kind of hard to follow. There are lots of shots of her laptop, including catching her boyfriend cheating on her on webcam, her making a humiliating video of him drooling in his sleep as revenge, and then officially ending their relationship via website FaceSpace. Yes, FaceSpace. Without fail, the rapper makes another appearance to some pretty nifty special effects.
This video and lyrics behind this song are just about as ridiculous as this little diva's curls. Instead of running away from the prying eyes of TMZ cameras, she's running away from TMI. The rapper makes a double appearance in here as a talent agent and an assistant figure, but surprisingly, does not rap.
Not only are the scenes incredibly repetitive -- it's just the girl singing in the the mic for half the song -- but the lyrics are, too, I don't know why (4x)/I can feel (3x)/it, i have a crush on you. And off all the scenes with the random, older rapper, this has got to be the most awkward -- it's amid a teenage pillow fight.
This girl has a great voice and can actually sing. Too bad that the creative folks at Ark couldn't put in even one single real background though. And when the obligatory rapper scene comes on, they really bring out the big guns in terms of cheesy special effects.
