The beloved Late Late Show with James Corden segment “Carpool Karaoke” is finally returning after a two-year hiatus, and superstar rapper Nicki Minaj will be the late-night host’s first guest to take part in the popular sing-along showcase.

In the Twitter announcement on Friday, James Corden revealed the exciting news by sharing a promo video of the new installment and revealing that both Minaj and singer Camila Cabello will be featured in upcoming segments. 

The skit, which usually features musical artists who ride in a car with Corden and sing along to some of their greatest hits, was on pause for two years due to the pandemic and social-distancing guidelines.  

Speaking of the show’s musical guests in a past interview on The Ellen Show, Corden said, “It feels like there’s a whole raft of artists that we are desperate to do it with.”

Stars and celebrities that have made previous appearances on the segment include Mariah CareyMichelle ObamaMissy Elliot and Jennifer Hudson

The first new episode of Carpool Karaoke, featuring Minaj, will air this Wednesday, April 6, while Cabello will appear on the April 18 episode.
