When Apple Music unveiled the premiere episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series on Tuesday, things began not with a bang but a Boom! As in, Shake the Room.
The room was more of a car, actually. And Will Smith, the first guest of honor, kicked off the festivities with James Corden — why, yes, the host of The Late Late Show, from which this Carpool Karaoke viral bit was born — on a rendition of “Gettin Jiggy Wit’ It” before getting to “Boom! Shake the Room.”
And Corden pulled out all the stops when he stopped the beat and came to a stop in the car as a marching band filled in behind them to accompany them on the rest of the rap.
