Jack Howard and Dean Dobbs’ song “Consent” will be played on Radio 1 on 15 June 2014.
The track by YouTube duo OMFGItsJackAndDean debuted on YouTube on 6 June 2014, and will have its first airplay during the Matt Edmonson show starting at 10.00 BST.
“I was hoping that the song would get some press but never expected something as big as this. Especially within it’s first week of release”, Jack Howard told TenEighty.
The description for the upcoming show on the BBC website states “Jack and Dean join Matt straight out of the internet!”, which will feature the first radio play of the song and a live interview.
Speaking about the appearance, Jack Howard said: “It’s great that people are embracing something like this, it really shows that pop songs can be about something clear and positive and be popular and catchy without being the cause of charity.”.
