Carpool Karaoke becoming its own series

As reported past year, Carpool Karaoke: The Series is being rolled out in partnership with Apple Music, where episodes will premiere exclusively through the tech giant's streaming service.

Each and every one of James Corden's Carpool Karaoke's has gone viral (which basically means they've been viewed a LOT online) after being aired on his chat show, The Late Late Show. In the clip, Corden is behind the wheel some of the time and other times he's not in the auto at all.

Set to be distributed via Apple's digital music streaming platform, Apple Music, the tech giant has committed to airing at least 16 30-minute episodes. But now there's a trailer to whet our appetites, and it promises the same jolly, singalong goodness that we know from the original show.

It's all about music, so it seems right - except people use Apple Music for songs.

The trailer also indicates that the guests won't be relegated inside the auto at all times; the stars will also visit other locales, such as bakeries, basketball courts and possibly more - even what appears to be a wedding. Instead, we have wrestler-turned-rapper John Cena with basketball player-turned-rapper Shaquille O'Neal, and John Legend with Alicia Keys. The "Carpool Karaoke" squad, of course, welcomed her to the bit with open arms, because she's Blue Ivy and she is just too cute for words.
