Adele Breaks Justin Bieber’s “Carpool Karaoke” Record, Is James Corden’s Most-Watched “Late Late Show” Video
As Gossip Cop has reported, Corden’s recurring “Carpool Karaoke” segments have him driving to work with a top singer. They shoot the breeze, belt some songs, and invariably get involved in some goofiness. Mariah Carey was the first to kick off the series last March, but it was a May edition with Bieber that truly went viral.
In fact, it became Corden’s most-viewed “Late Late Show” clip on YouTube, and has held that title for about seven months. But enter Adele. The British songstress did an installment that premiered earlier this month, and it seemed to nearly break the Internet.
Now less than two weeks later, Adele’s version has overtaken Bieber’s record. She currently stands at just over 56 million views, while he’s at 55.7 million. Interestingly, this isn’t the only time the two suprstars have been in competition recently.
As Gossip Cop reported, in October Adele topped Bieber when she released “Hello” at the same time as he dropped “Sorry.” Her album 25 then knocked his record Purpose out of the top spot on the Billboard 200 the next month. Bieber got some revenge just two weeks ago, though, when “Sorry” dethroned “Hello” to become the number one song on the Billboard Hot 100.
And it’s quite possible Bieber’s “Carpool Karaoke” will steal back its most-viewed title down the line. It’s also worth noting Bieber’s “Carpool Karaoke Volume 2” currently ranks third on the list of Corden’s most popular “Late Late Show” YouTube videos, followed by One Direction’s own “Carpool” sketch. Future editions are slated to include Chris Martin and Elton John.
