“The Late Late Show” host James Corden finally treated fans to a teaser clip of the highly-anticipated spin-off “Carpool Karaoke” series on June 22. In it, Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith rock out to Prince’s Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit “Let’s Go Crazy.” Latifah is behind the wheel with Pinkett Smith riding shot gun and they’re having a great time seat-dancing to the track.
Per Corden’s intro, the series is slated to premiere Aug. 8 on Apple Music. This preview clip offers fans a glimpse of what they can expect, which looks a lot like Corden’s wildly-popular talk show segment, from whence the series idea was born.
Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith co-star in Director Malcolm D. Lee’s upcoming rom-com “Girls Trip,” which is due to hit theaters on July 21. They pick up fellow cast members Regina Hall and Tiffany Haddish and brainstorm ways to promote the film, which results in cruising the streets, getting the word out via megaphone and using a blaster to shoot “Girls Trip” t-shirts from the car windows. People happily catch them, with cell phones at the ready to capture all the action.
The fabulous female foursome belt out Cyndi Lauper’s signature hit “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” in part of the clip as well. Other guest stars who are lined up to take a musical ride in “Carpool Karaoke’s” debut season include Pinkett Smith’s Grammy-winning, Oscar-nominated husband Will Smith, Alicia Keys, Ariana Grande, Blake Shelton and more.
