Patrice Wilson is the man who wrote “Friday,” the infamous single that put Rebecca Black on the musical map. And, as you might imagine, he took a lot of flak for penning such a ridiculous anthem.
Now, in response to the feedback, Wilson has come out with his very own music video for some single titled “H.A.P.P.Y.”
“I figured I might as well kind of tell the story of what happened,” says Wilson. “When people see that it’s not getting to you, then maybe they can start liking you. With all the hate, I just wanted to make something that would make people smile.”
That’s what Wilson attempts to do here, kicking off the video by crying in front of a fake news report. Watch, react now and then listen to Black’s new track.
