Anyone notice what album has been battling Lily Allen’s critically acclaimed “It’s Not Me, It’s You” for the top of iTunes album download chart all this week? No, it’s not the latest CD from The Fray, Coldplay or Taylor Swift, it’s none other than The Lonely Island’s debut release, “Incredibad.”
Literally years in the making, The Lonely Island (aka, the trio of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone) have collected some of their pre-“Saturday Night Live” compositions such as “Just Two Guyz” and “Bing Bong Brothers” as well as the Emmy-winning Justin Timberlake collaboration “D*** In A Box” and the internet sensation “Lazy Sunday” for their first album.
The CD/DVD also contains other “SNL” digital shorts such as “Natalie’s Rap” (which is even better uncensored), “Jizz in my Pants” and their most recent release, “I’m On a Boat” featuring a fantastic self-depricating turn by none other than T-Pain.
New tracks include “Sax Man” with Jack Black, “Santana DVX” with E-40 and “Like a Boss.”
To celebrate Valentine’s Day, The Lonely Island have released a special interactive card that provides what can only be described as a “special and sensitive” message on this holiday for lovers. Check it out here.
