When Mariah Carey got in a car with new Late Late Show James Corden, she quickly found herself in the midst of an impromptu karaoke session. And because her own oeuvre is the best oeuvre for drive-time blasting, it's inevitable that Mariah Carey ended up busting out some Mariah Carey in the process.
Watch above as the two pals sing through Mimi's No. 1 hits like "Always Be My Baby," "Vision of Love" and "Fantasy." (And get ready to have those stuck in your head all day.) You'll even get treated to a little snippet of the Me. I Am Mariah... fan favorite "Thirsty," off her latest album, which the diva has only performed on select tour dates.
This was probably a ploy to drum up anticipation for the singer's upcoming Las Vegas residency, which is centered around her 18 (yup, 18) No. 1 hits. But it's a brilliant scheme and makes the larger-than-life Mariah seem a little more human...especially when she tells Corden she's just going to "hitch a ride and hope someone picks [her] up" after the carpool ends.
If hearing "Vision of Love" and "Fantasy" sent you into a nostalgic mood, keep it going with 23 vintage photos of Mimi. And why not revisit Mariah's last viral smash, the elementary-school-music-class-style rendition of "All I Want for Christmas Is You" she did with Jimmy Fallon and the Roots?
