Will Smith joined James Corden for the first episode of the new Carpool Karaoke TV series.
The series, a spin-off from Corden's popular Late Late Show bit, is streaming exclusively on Apple Music. Corden will not appear on every episode, but he started things off with a bang by teaming up with Smith.
The first six minutes of the show are currently available on YouTube, and features Smith and Corden performing "Gettin' Jiggy With It" with a marching band. Later they take on Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff's early '90s rap banger 'Boom! Shake The Room'. They also discussed the possibility of Smith playing Barack Obama in a movie, and apparently the former President of the United States has already given his seal of approval telling the rapper/movie star, "He felt confident that I had the ears for the role."
Future episodes of the Carpool Karaoke series will feature appearances from Metallica, Seth MacFarlane, Billy Eichner, John Legend, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, John Cena, Shaquille O'Neal, and Game Of Thrones stars Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams. New episodes will be released on Apple Music every Tuesday.
Smith will be making two rare music festival appearances this month. Teaming up with DJ Jazzy Jeff, the duo will headline MTV Summerblast in Croatia on August 26th, and the U.K.'s Livewire Festival on the 27th.
