Migos came to “Carpool Karaoke” to play. The trap trio hopped in the car with James Corden for the signature Late Late Show bit on Tuesday night (Nov. 13) with a duffel bag stuffed with cash and enough ad libs to get them from Los Angeles to Ohio. With Quavo riding shotgun and Offset and Takeoff in the back seat, the guys got right down to business with a run through “Walk It Talk it,” with Corden just trying to keep up by tossing in some “skrrt skrrt” and “add it up, add it up” accents.
Things got real quickly when Corden asked Quavo to explain how the group invented the dab, then apologized for all dorky dads who made it uncool. “I feel slightly responsible, as it think many other dads in their late 30s, early 40s do, where I feel like I might have ruined it,” Corden said, even as he dabbed to the group’s embarrassment. Things quickly picked up, though, when Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me),” came on and everyone grooved along to the 1987 classic, complete with coordinated dabbing, “Macarena” hand jives and, of course, ad libs.
After reminding them that Donald Glover said “Bad and Boujee” was the best song to make love to, Quavo asked “have you ever made love to ‘Bad and Boujee?’,” as Corden promised he would that night. “Watch out, you might end up with 10 kids,” Quavo warned him before the whole car broke into a bit of “Boujee.” Corden was blown away by Offset’s $10,000 stacks, so he started counting out the $200,000 plus in walking around cash.
Feeling like his drip was lacking, Corden asked the guys to use some of that cash to help kit him out with some hotter clothes. “Is this drip? Am I dripping?,” Corden wondered as he modeled a silver hooded jacket that made him look like a giant baked potato. “I don’t feel like I’m dripping. I don’t look like Migos, I feel like I’m hiding Migos under a coat.” Once he was sufficiently swagged out, they got back in the car and enthusiastically rapped along to Cardi B‘s verse on “MotorSport” and improbably showed off their ad lib skills to Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline.”
