Earlier this year it was revealed that after Apple had acquired the rights to “Carpool Karaoke” that the series would be launching in 2017. It was originally suggested that the launch party would be taking place in March in Los Angeles, but given that we’re now in April that clearly did not happen.
Now according to a report from Reuters, it seems that the series might have been delayed again. The report claims that Apple was supposed to host a launch party on Monday this week, but once again those plans have since been postponed. We’re not sure what’s with the delay, but a statement provided to Reuters reads, “Carpool Karaoke: The Series will premiere on Apple Music later this year.”
For those who are unfamiliar with the series, it was originally launched as part of the “The Late Late Show with James Corden” where the host, James Corden, would drive around in a car with a celebrity (or multiple celebrities) and he would conduct an interview and sing with them. It has attracted quite a bit of attention as it has featured some pretty big names.
The show is expected to debut on Apple Music, and we’ve also seen how Spotify is trying to do something similar with “Traffic Jams”, where hip-hop artists and producers try to create a song on the spot while driven around in a car.
