The Late Late Show birthed "Carpool Karaoke," the famous segment that sees host James Corden cruise around in a Range Rover singing songs with extremely famous people like Adele, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Michele Obama.

The segment's ballooned into a viral smash—it almost seems like a right of passage for superstars—and now Apple Music wants to take the segment for a ride of its own, albeit without its witty host. 

CNET reports that the forthcoming series will contain 16 episodes, and count Corden, CBS Television Studios, and Ben Winston's production company, Fulwell 73 as producers. Corden will not be hosting the new Apple Music series, but for anyone worried about the segment disappearing completely, do not worry: CBS confirmed that "Carpool Karaoke" will "continue as a recurring segment on The Late Late Show." The new show will be available weekly to Apple Music subscribers, although there's no premiere date currently available.

Apropos of the news, Ben Winston said some nice things about "Carpool Karaoke," reiterating much of the joy the internet has already expressed: "The joy of 'Carpool' is both the intimacy it creates, while seeing the love our passengers have for music."
