VH1's 'I Love New York' gets a new theme song

Posted on

When season 3 of VH1’s surprise hit I Love New York premieres on Aug. 4, it will feature a new — and appropriately titled — theme song: “The World Should Revolve Around Me.” The track is by Imani Coppola’s new pop-soul outfit Little Jackie, which was recently signed to S-Curve Records (home to Joss Stone and Fountains of Wayne), and is one of several from the group’s debut album, The Stoop, which will be integrated into the show. The song features whimsical lines like, “I bide my time with philosophical questions / Not for nothin’ but what came first / The chicken nugget or the egg McMuffin.” It will be available for download starting Tuesday, May 20, and a video shot by Ace Norton (Bloc Party, Death Cab For Cutie) is also in the works. If it’s anything like the band’s NSFW “Black Barbie” clip, which, like Pink’s “Stupid Girls,” mocks key players in the Perez Hilton stratosphere, expect something risqué, as is the New York way.
