The Lonely Island has been one of the most successful if not the most successful comedy music group. The three guys first formed the group on Saturday Night Live in 2007 and have had huge success with multiple of their singles like “I Just Had Sex” and “I’m On A Boat” reaching Platnium status. It is interesting to see because their music is so unique in a weird but in a funny way. These guys pull out all the stops with great sounding music and great hooks with huge guest features even though all of their songs and lyrics are joking around. “The Wack Album” was released on June 11th and has features such as Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Adam Levine, Robyn and Solange.
The album’s biggest single and best on the album is “YOLO” featuring Adam Levine and Kendrick Lamar. It’s so catchy with a solid beat and a great hook. Just by listening to it sounds like it would be on the radio with Adam Levine’s vocals on the hook but obviously it’s all a big joke. The song is basically about being extremely careful because “you only live once”. These guys pretty much make fun of the whole concept of Yolo using lines like “And where titanium suits in case pianos fall on ya. And never go in saunas cause they’re crawlin’ with piranhas”
Overall this is a very funny good album and I really enjoy it mainly because not only is it catchy and sounds good but the lyrics are also hilarious. One of the top tracks “Go Kindergarten” has to be one of the funniest music videos I have ever seen. You should check it out because if these guys can’t make you laugh then I don’t know what can plus they are good and catchy songs.
