Was Rebecca Black's "Friday" Inspired by the Black Eyed Peas?

The Songwriters of "Friday" may have been inspired by the Black Eyed Peas. Both Artists draw heavily on "the days of the week" for subject matter.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
(Do it!)
Friday, Saturday, Saturday to Sunday
(Do it!)
Get, get, get, get, get with us, you know what we say, say
Party every day, p-p-p-party every day

- The Black Eyed Peas: I Gotta Feeling

Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday
Today i-is Friday, Friday (Partyin’)
We-we-we so excited
We so excited
We gonna have a ball today

Tomorrow is Saturday
And Sunday comes after … wards
I don’t want this weekend to end

-Rebecca Black: Friday

Regardles of where the inspiration lies, both songs are good reminders that there are days in the week. Let's not take that for granted.
