Hot off the release of her latest music-video, pop superstar Britney Spears will be the next passenger in James Corden’s next Carpool Karaoke segment. The popular series has become a staple of The Late Late Show with James Corden. The special event is scheduled to air on Thursday, Aug. 25 on CBS.
This is all set to happen just as Spears is set to release her ninth studio album, which is called Glory. The album will release the day after Spears hits the series, on August 26 via RCA Records. A multi-platinum Grammy Award winner, Spears is one of the most successful entertainers in pop history, with nearly 100 million records sold worldwide.
Over the years Spears has won six Billboard Music Awards and Billboard’s Millennium Award, which recognizes outstanding career achievements and influence in the music industry, as well as an American Music Award and the 2011 MTV Video Vanguard Award.
Spears has had six No. 1-debuting albums on the Billboard 200 chart and 24 top 40 hit singles on the Billboard Hot 100 — five of which went to No. 1. She has been nominated for eight Grammy Awards and won for Best Dance Recording in 2005. Her cutting-edge pop concert Las Vegas residency, “Britney: Piece of Me,” at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, has been voted “Best Show in Las Vegas” and “Best Bachelorette Show in Las Vegas.”
Each week night, James Corden invites the audience to join in on the fun as the Emmy Award-nominated The Late Late Show with James Corden features a mix of celebrity guests, musical acts, games and sketches. The show’s post-Super Bowl broadcast delivered the highest ratings, with any host, since the show’s inception in 1995.
