Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, & Justin Timberlake Join The Lonely Island on New Album

The Lonely Island is serving up more laughs with its second album Turtleneck & Chain, and they’ve outfitted it with some superstar guests.

The follow-up to the comedy troupe’s 2009 debut Incredibad, due May 10, will feature collaborations with Justin Timberlake (“Motherlover”), Akon (“I Just Had Sex”), Nicki Minaj (“The Creep”), and Rihanna on the sequel to their viral sensation “Shy Ronnie 2: Ronnie & Clyde.” The songs debuted on “Saturday Night Live” during “SNL Digital Shorts.”

Andy Samberg shared what it was like working with Nicki. “She’s great,” the comedian told MTV News. “We share a lot of attributes with her, ’cause it’s like lots of great rapping ability, super-bangin’ bods, really intense sense of style, nice smelling … did I say bangin’ bods?”

His fellow group member Akiva Schaffer added, “She’s a little weirdo. As soon as we saw she existed, we were like, ‘We have to do something with her!'”

The funnymen will perform “I Just Had Sex” with Akon at the inaugural Comedy Awards, airing tonight on Comedy Central.
