If you are online enough, or maybe if you watch TV, there’s a good chance you might have heard of this TV segment called “Carpool Karaoke” which is featured on “The Late Late Show with James Corden”. If you have heard of it, you might also be interested to learn that the segment has been bought up by Apple.

It turns out that the segment has proven to be a popular way of getting people to buy music and to stream songs, which is why it isn’t surprising that the Cupertino company has acquired the show for its Apple Music platform. The show will now be distributed through Apple Music to all of its members.

In a statement made by Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet software and services, “We love music, and ‘Carpool Karaoke’ celebrates it in a fun and unique way that is a hit with audiences of all ages. It’s a perfect fit for Apple Music — bringing subscribers exclusive access to their favorite artists and celebrities who come along for the ride.”

Apple has licensed 16 episodes of the show and while it will be exec produced by James Corden and Ben Winston (the exec producer for the Late Late Show), Corden himself will not be hosting it, which is admittedly rather unfortunate as his personality does lend itself to making the show more entertaining. In the meantime for those who are unfamiliar with the Carpool Karaoke segment, check out the video above for the latest episode featuring the First Lady Michelle Obama and hip-hop artist Missy Elliot.
