Listen: The Lonely Island Offer Up Hilarious New Songs From ‘Popstar’ Mockumentary
Andy Samberg’s brilliant spoofball trio The Lonely Island is breaking through to the big screen next month when their mockumentary Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping hits theaters on June 3. The comedy group has an accompanying soundtrack in the works, and today unveiled two tastes of what’s to come as Samberg stars as Conner4Real, a Bieber clone looking to rebound from a flop record.
Listen below as Akiva Schaffer, Andy Samberg, and Jorma Taccone reach new heights of ridiculous on “Mona Lisa,” a track calling out the looks of Leonardo da Vinci’s legendary muse. The chorus shouldn’t be hard to remember: “Mona Lisa, you’re an overrated piece of shit…”
So yeah, there’s that. Then we have “I’m So Humble,” a collaboration with Maroon 5’s Adam Levine that’s anything but. It’s juvenile, and frankly a little bit stupid, but in an age of tangerine presidential candidates and fake sex tape scandals, “a little bit stupid” might be just the cultural prescription these days.
