Britney Spears will ride along with James Corden for some “Carpool Karaoke,” CBS confirmed this morning during the network’s executive session at TCA. The pop star is set for The Late Late Show segment on Thursday, August 25, a day before her ninth studio album Glory is released via RCA Records.
Grammy winner Spears has sold nearly 100 million records worldwide. She has had six No. 1-debuting albums on the Billboard 200 chart and 24 top 40 hit singles on the Billboard Hot 100 — five of which went to No. 1. She has been nominated for eight Grammy Awards and won Best Dance Recording for “Toxic” in 2005.
Corden’s Late Late Show holds the YouTube record for the most-watched late-night clip with “Adele Carpool Karaoke,” which has 121 million views. The show’s YouTube Channel has amassed more than 1.5 billion total views and nearly 7 million subscribers since the show’s premiere on March 23, 2015.
