Will Smith, James Corden Kick Off Apple Music's Carpool Karaoke Series

James Corden

The duo sang Smith's '90s hits, including “Boom! Shake the Room” & “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It."

I don't have a license and don't own a car, so I'll only ever have two options when it comes to singing in a motor vehicle: I can either drunkenly scream the lyrics to whatever is playing in my Lyft ride home at 3 AM or I can pretend to be friends with the celebrities on James Corden's Carpool Karaoke series as I mouth the words to whatever they happen to be singing.

Luckily, the latter has been the more feasible option thanks to the unending stream of videos that the late night host has produced over the years. Everyone from Harry Styles and Elton John to Sia and Adele have sat in the car with Corden and belted out their hits. Now, the series is dropping off Corden and taking the expressway to Apple Music with a new Carpool Karaoke series for the music streaming service.

To help usher in a new era of carpool antics with the Apple touch, Corden showed up for the first episode and strapped in with Will Smith. In a preview, the duo settle in for some of Smith's biggest '90s hits, including "Boom! Shake the Room" and "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It," with the help of a high school marching band, naturally. Afer all, a move to Apple Music also means bigger budgets--the full episode features the duo crashing a wedding and taking a helicopter ride.

Besides singing the hits, Corden also confirms what we always wanted to know: whether Will Smith would ever play Barack Obama in a movie. The answer is yes and he's even got the former POTUS's approval. As Smith explained, "He told me he felt confident that I had the ears for the role."

In a preview for future episodes of the new series, we also see Smith's wife Jada Pinkett team with Queen Latifah to let loose, Alicia Keys and John Legend take a ride, and Game of Thrones sisters Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner belting Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball."
