Apple Casually Dropped Sixteen Brand New Carpool Karaokes

Source-  James Corden’tand mega-popular segment now has an Apple flavor. You can catch the first six minutes of the premiere episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series, which released on Tuesday night, as part of a 16-episode season for Apple Music.

Will Smith is the first guest, and they open with a rendition of “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It.” Then they get into a very over-the-top version of “Boom! Shake The Room,” while also discussing if Smith would ever play Barack Obama. 

There’s also a teaser of other hosts and guests, such Gwyneth Paltrow (an easy choice, given she’s in another of Apple’s shows, Planet of the Apps), Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner from Game of Thrones, and Billy Eichner singing it out with Metallica, of all people.

Carpool Karaoke is hands down one of the best segments in late night. So naturally I was pumped when I found out Apple was releasing sixteen stand-alone episodes. It’s sixteen more times I get to laugh at a chubby British dude sing his heart out. I’m surprised it took this long to get a spin off; it’s the best part of The Late Late Show. People love it, celebrities love it, first ladies love it.

Singing in the Corden Range Rover has become a must do for anyone trying to promote anything. Which is why I was shocked when I found out he’s not even hosting it. Yeah, he’s going to host the initial episode but after that he’ll be an on again and off again host. Initially, I thought it was a dumb move but the more I thought about it the more I realized how genius it was. Why not stick Billy Eichner and Metallica in a car together? Or make Shaq and John Cena sing Mambo Number Five?

I’m just upset they only ordered sixteen episodes. There has to be more celebrities willing to play along. They could do a few hundred episodes with athletes, a few hundred with singers, then start with regular people. The show could last forever. Who cares if they’re scraping the bottom of the barrel talent-wise, watching people sing in a car will never not be entertaining.
