Weird Al Yankovick and Andy Samberg are doing an episode of Apple Music’s Carpool Karaoke, and the trailer looks like a lot of fun. Andy Samberg is being joined by his The Lonely Island partners, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone. I’m guessing just about everyone knows who Weird Al is, and many will be familiar with Andy Samberg, but it was The Lonely Island trio who produced Lazy Sunday, Natalie’s Rap, I’m on a Boat, and many more popular SNL Digital Shorts. This Carpool Karaoke episode looks suitably zany, with a mix of straight songs and parody bits. I’m looking forward to it!

The music world lost a pillar with the passing of Aretha Franklin. She was suffering from pancreatic cancer, as did Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. To commemorate her life Apple has several playlists on Apple Music celebrating her powerful contributions to soul, jazz, R&B, blues, and funk. Aretha’s influence crossed musical genres and that won’t likely change even though she’s gone. You can check out her Apple Music playlists in the Music app on your iPhone or iPad, or under the Browse tab in iTunes music section.
