Did you really think that BTS were going to do visit the Late Late Show and not help host James Corden get to work that morning? C’mon. On Monday (Feb. 17), Corden revealed that the K-pop superstars will indeed jump in his SUV for a “Carpool Karaoke” segment when they drop by next Tuesday (Feb. 25) show.
Corden made the announcement via photo on his social feeds in which he looks shocked to have all seven members surrounding him in the vehicle.

The group premiered their single “Black Swan” on the Late Late Show in January and their eagerly anticipated new album, Map of the Soul: 7, is due out on Friday (Feb. 21). On Sunday, BTS shared the 20-song tracklist for the upcoming album. Along with previously released songs from last year’s Billboard 200 chart-topping Map of the Soul: Persona and previously released Map of the Soul: 7 songs “Interlude: Shadow,” “Outro: Ego,” and “Black Swan,” the album is fronted by single “On,” which will be released via both a BTS-only version and one featuring Sia.
Aside from the single, Map of the Soul: 7 features other previously unheard of new songs from BTS, including “My Time, “Louder Than Bombs,” and “We Are Bulletproof: the Eternal.” The latter is an apparent sequel to “We Are Bulletproof” and “We Are Bulletproof, Part 2,” songs released by BTS both prior to and on their debut album 2 Cool 4 Skool back in 2013.
The “Carpool” ride will come one day after the group visit The Tonight Show for an episode-long takeover that will include an extended interview, performance and a tour of New York.
