Here's Why James Corden Stops Will Smith's Music During 'Carpool Karaoke'

You can't help but LOL!

If you've ever sang the lyrics to a Will Smith tune while driving, you're not alone.

Yesterday, Apple Music released a six-minute teaser of the first episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series on YouTube. In the viral clip, The Late Late Show host James Corden and guest Will were rocking it out to his 1998 hit "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" in the car.

As the entertaining duo got to the first verse of the song, James suddenly stopped the music.

"Yo man, what the hell are you doing?" Will asks James.

"It's such a big tune," James says. "I feel like we need more."

All of a sudden, a full marching band enters — which James refers to as "surround sound" — and they circle the entire car. The marching band plays "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" as the two entertainers in the car happily join them.

Within a few seconds, the marching band remix continues with Will and James sticking their heads out of the car's sunroof to finish the song.

After the conclusion of the song, James drives around in the car while asking Will about the beginning of his career in music.

"I wrote my first rhyme when I was 12," Will says. "It never got released. The first one that got released, I was 16, 'Girls Ain't Nothing But Trouble.'"

Afterwards, Will and James belt out the former Fresh Prince's 1993 hit song "Boom! Shake The Room" while driving.

Later in the clip, James teases Will for his overuse of the catchphrase, "Oh hell no" during many of his classic movies.
