After much praise for the segment on The Late Late Show, James Corden has turned his Carpool Karaoke bit into an Apple Music series. To gear up for the series premiere, Apple Music has released a preview of the first episode, which shows Will Smith and Corden ditching the car for a helicopter and crashing a wedding.
Corden debuted his new surround-sound system—actually a marching band—to assist in providing the instrumental for Smith’s track, “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It.” Along with playing Smith’s hits, Corden asked if he would consider playing Barack Obama in a film. Smith disclosed he has “talked to Barack about it,” and the former president told him that he “felt confident that [Smith] had the ears for the role.”
