If "Peeno Noir" is your jam, or if the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt theme song has been stuck in your head for one straight year, or you think Kimmy and Titus are the greatest duo since Jimmy Kimmel and Matt Damon, well, you're in luck. Not only is Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt back for season two, the hilarious Netflix hit has even more music magic than before.

Oh, and real-life Kimmy and Titus, aka Ellie Kemper and Tituss Burgess? The pals are just as delightful as their on-screen counterparts.

ET's Leanne Aguilera sat down with the pair recently at the Netflix junket in New York City, where Kemper and Burgess didn't just talk about the new episodes -- they broke into song.

"Kimmy and Tituss to being best friends," they crooned, with Kemper adding, "Together forever."

If you haven't already binged the new season, as it premiered at midnight, that freestyle is simply a preview of what's in store when it's time to just Netflix and chill. "There is a lot more music this season," Burgess dished to ET.

"Like, entire episodes devoted to it, which is great," Kemper noted.

With many of the main cast members being Broadway alum, it is only fitting that the show amped up the music moments for its sophomore season.

"It is so good because... Carol [Kane], Jane [Krakowski], and Titus are actual musicians who are professional Broadway actors, and it would be a shame to not include music," Kemper said.

While the mom-to-be is excited for fans to fawn over her co-stars, Burgess is 100 percent Team Ellie.

"It's really fun to watch you..." the 37-year-old actor started to explain before Kemper jokingly interjected, "Attempt?"

"You make a wonderful attempt," Burgess insisted. "That kitty and bunny stuff is so funny. It's so funny! Why don't you just own it?"

Many fans may recognize that "stuff" as the impromptu theme song Kimmy created for two adorable, furry creatures, "Bunny and Kitty," that was a highlight of the giddy season two promo.

"But no, seriously, this song is going to get stuck in everyone's head," he added. "Already from the trailer, people are loving it." embed Youtube vid of trailer

It is about as perfect a ditty as one can ask for from Kimmy, the wide-eyed, cult survivor who's trying to find her way through New York City, one candy-colored day at a time.

But the real question is, how does one create a follow-up to that cult favorite tune which happens to be "an ode to black penis."

"I don't know if it is about topping as much as it is about exploring the other areas of music that we can investigate and offer up that people will latch onto and make their own, just as they did with 'Peeno Noir,'" Burgess explained.

"Yes, it's a journey, not a destination," Kemper, 35, chimed in, to which Burgess agreed and gave a resounding, "Oh, yeah!"

Burgess, who received an Outstanding Supporting Actor Emmy nomination last year for his Unbreakable role, has two albums under his belt and has performed in a number of Broadway productions, including Jersey Boys and Guys and Dolls. As Kemper alluded, it truly would be a shame if the show didn't take advantage of Burgess and its other talented leads, seeing as Krakowski (Jacqueline Voorhees) is a Tony and Olivier Award winner, and Kane (Lillian Kaushtupper) is a Broadway veteran who starred in various productions of Wicked for almost a decade.

If you loved "Peeno Noir," you'll swoon over Burgess' rendition of "Stay With Me" from Into the Woods. Watch him slay the song in the video below.
