Newly minted hot mom Cardi B is doing Carpool Karaoke with James Corden on The Late Late Show With James Corden Monday and the sneak peek of the segment CBS offered Thursday will lift your spirits more than any eggnog or jingling bell ever could.
The glucose-spiking clip is not even a full minute, but it is exploding with adorableness, starting with the fact that the stylistic chameleon has on her business wig and is dressed in a monochromatic mustard suit that's equal parts fabulous and "working Mom leaving a big meeting." Cardi's appearance comes after Corden had queen Barbra Streisand rap Cardi lyrics and then Migos, the group that's the musical home of Cardi's ex Offset, ride around rapping too, so hanging with Cardi must've been as fun for James as it is to watch.
There's a cute gag wherein Cardi, a New Yorker and avowed non-driver, backs over some poles clearly set up for the bit; lots of rapping to her music; some signature Cardi sound effects and some of that signature Cardi B bon mot that's made everybody from Jimmy Fallon to Fran Drescher fall in love with her. (Well, almost everybody.) "Stay in school!" she is seen shouting at some kids. "Listen to ya Mom, or you won't be getting no Christmas gifts!"
Somebody please give this lady her own show already.
The Late Late Show airs weeknights at 12:37 a.m. on CBS.
(Full disclosure: TV Guide is owned by CBS.)
