Apple Music’s Carpool Karaoke: The Series has released a new star-studded trailer featuring celebs like Tracee Ellis Ross, Alicia Keys, and Will Smith.

The series is based on CBS’ popular The Late Late Show with James Corden segment in which Corden drives around in a car singing hit songs with celebrities. One of the most popular segments from the show features former First Lady Michelle Obama singing hits by Missy Elliott and Beyoncé. The YouTube video has nabbed nearly 57 million views to date. Overall, Carpool has generated nearly 1 billion views, according to CBS.  Apple surprised the industry when it bought the viral sensation after it sparked a bidding war among cable and subscription VOD outlets. The show will be distributed to 100 countries worldwide and fits right in with Apple’s streaming-music venture.

The trailer is set to James Brown’s “Get Up Off That Thing,” and features actors, singers, and athletes singing inside and outside of the car. Will Smith is spotted standing up through the sun roof surrounded by a huge live marching band.  Shaquille O’Neal, Seth MacFarlane, Metallica, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Ariana Grande are among the celebrities also scheduled to appear in the series. Corden appears in at least two episodes, alongside Will Smith and LeBron James.

Carpool Karaoke: The Series will launch on Apple Music August 8. It will be available via subscription regularly priced at $9.99 per month.
