On Thursday, Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson was “gettin’ down on Friday” with his new walk-up music.
During New York’s Opening Day win at Yankee Stadium, Granderson said he was surprised when he heard Rebecca Black’s viral hit, “Friday,” blasting through the stadium’s speakers, MLB.com reports.
Granderson immediately looked over to his teammates in the dugout and smiled, all the while shaking his head.
“I had no clue what that was,” Granderson said. “I didn’t pick that song. Maybe they wrote something down wrong for me. I’m not sure what that was, exactly. I’ve heard it enough to know that it wasn’t what I picked.”
Some say that the New York outfielder should keep Black’s “song” as his walk-up music because of his performance that day. Granderson hit the go-ahead home run off of Phil Coke and added on two incredible defensive plays in the Yankees’ 6-3 win over Detroit.
Granderson has a popular internet video of his own from when he joined up with the New York comedy group, 12 Angry Mascots, to show the process of selecting his at-bat music. In the video, he tirelessly searches through iTunes until at last coming upon Black’s song, which ultimately makes him cry.
