According to Le Figaro, one of the tracks on Carla Bruni's upcoming album, Little French Songs — which drops April 1! — is dedicated to her husband and former French president Nicolas Sarkozy.

L'Express obtained a verse that contains the lyrics "To cross the Rubicon, we can't say he hesitates" and "Even though he wears a tie, my Raymond is a pirate" and also likens Sarko a.k.a. Ray's body to an atomic bomb. Is vendredi Play a Weird Joke on Foreign Bloggers Day in France?
