James Corden raps and sings in a new promo for “The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special,” which will feature highlights from the talk show host’s past “Carpool Karaoke” segments, as well as a brand new installment with Jennifer Lopez. Watch the video below!

“Carpool Karaoke,” in which Corden drives around and sings with a music superstar, has become one of the most popular bits on “The Late Late Show.” In the primetime special’s new promo, set to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Downtown,” Corden raps, “Went to my network boss and said, ‘Screw it.’ Boss is like, ‘How ’bout a special? You wanna do it?'” The host continues, “I’m on my way before 12:30, cleaning up my language ’cause I can’t talk dirty.”

Corden then goes into the parody song’s chorus, which replaces “Downtown” with “Primetime,” before rapping, “I’ll make your TV shine brighter than a halo, all leading up to a Carpool with J.Lo.” The talk show host then points to Lopez, who’s sitting shotgun in his car.

A few of the past “Carpool Karaoke” participants have included Justin Bieber, One Direction, Mariah Carey, Elton John, Chris Martin, Sia, Iggy Azalea, and Adele, whose installment holds the record for the most-watched late-night clip on YouTube. Watch below a teaser promo for “The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special,” which airs on Tuesday night at 10 pm on CBS.
