We’ve seen teasers, trailers, and posters for Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, the upcoming mockumentary starring The Lonely Island, but when it comes to these comedic crooners, it’s really all about the music.
With that in mind, ScreenCrush reports that the group has released two new songs from the companion album to the upcoming film: I’m so Humble (featuring Adam Levine) and Mona Lisa. Those who’ve seen the trailer will recognize the former — and the better of the two — but the full version showcases this clever/catchy track in all its glory.
Titular pop star Connor4Real (Andy Samberg) humblebrags his way through the tune, rendering its title ironic with lines like “I’m so ordinary that it’s really quite extraordinary” and “My apple crumble is by far the most crumblest / But I act like it tastes bad out of humbleness.”
Just as a PSA, if you don’t want to have the song stuck in your head for the next week or so, you might want to steer clear.
As for Mona Lisa, the song details a trip to see the original Mona Lisa in Paris that proves disappointing. “I’m an American man, this is my native land / Where no one lies about paintings /But that’s not the case in France / Where the naked ladies dance and they look like Dennis Franz.”
As others have pointed out, aside from the absurd lyrics, these tracks have all the production value of bona fide chart toppers, a reality that makes them that much funnier.
Both songs are available on Spotify and iTunes, among other platforms. The film version of Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is set to hit theaters June 3, 2016, and stars Imogen Poots, Will Arnett, and Bill Hader, in addition to Samberg and the Lonely Island crew.
