Chester Bennington Filmed 'Carpool Karaoke' Before His Death, James Corden Releases Statement

Corden and The Fresh Prince began the show by singing along to Smith's 1997 classic "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It", during which, a full marching band gathered around the vehicle to provide "surround sound."The duo also rapped together on "Boom!" The feature film, Southside With You, starring Parker Sawyers as Barack and Tika Sumpter as Michelle Robinson Obama, chronicles the summer of 1989, when Obama took his future wife on their first date. "Oh HELL naw." "The best dance from the '90s was the Macarena". "All right, see, now you're going too far".

But we did get a pretty cool clip to check out as a preview, below.

As the Spirit of Troy surrounded the auto, Smith and Corden popped out of the sunroof ~Vegas style~ and sang to the tune. This show is already everything.

Recalling his early career, Smith said: "I wrote my first rhyme when I was 12 but it never got released". They just TEASED us with it in the trailer.

Corden also managed to ask Smith if he had ever contemplated playing Barack Obama in a movie to which he replied: "Yes". By which we mean, Smith has talked about it. We need it, and we need it now.

"Talinda made her first public statement on Chester's death a week after the news first broke, saying at the time: "[I've] lost my soulmate and my children lost their hero - their Daddy.

Thank you for the music, James Corden, Will Smith, and Billy Eichner.
