The Lonely Island’s ‘Turtleneck & Chain’ Due Out May 10, Features Nicki Minaj & Akon

    Much to the chagrin or delight of many of you, the Lonely Island are returning with a sophomore album, Turtleneck & Chain, in May. It will be interesting to see if anything on the record can be quite as popular as the singles off 2009’s Incredibad, which included “Lazy Sunday,” “Dick in a Box,” and “I’m on a Boat.”

     

    It’s certainly possible, though. Turtleneck & Chain’s lead single, “I Just Had Sex,” which features Akon, has reached gold status. And other high-profile guests include Nicki Minaj and Rihanna, who appeared in Lonely Island sketches in the past year or two. Justin Timberlake has collaborated again with the SNL boys, too. More guests are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

     

    “We’re Back,” the third single from Turtlenecks & Chains, will be premiered tonight on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. The album drops May 10.
