To sate the born-again masses, Rebecca Black's "Friday" has been given a Christ-filled overhaul courtesy of young singer Sadie B, complete with church-championing lyrics and the handy lesson that Monday comes after church.
There's even a hip-hop interlude with two white dudes doing their best Lonely Island impersonation, rapping about Easter Sunday. As far performances go, Sadie B's vocals aren't as carefree and soulful as Black's, but Sadie has the Jesus on her side.
On the other hand, all Black wants to do on the Sabbath is waste it in the back of a convertible with an older boy.
