Apple has dropped its first trailer for Carpool Karaoke, a new series coming soon to Apple Music.

The teaser offers a glimpse at some of the guests and hosts that will appear in the show, including Will Smith, John Cena, and Ariana Grande.

Carpool Karaoke was created and co-produced by British Late Late Show host James Corden, but Apple’s version will feature a different host every week. For now, 16 episodes have been planned — each of which will run for 30 minutes.

Corden will appear in some of the episodes, according to the teaser, while other hosts will include Shaq, James Hetfield and the rest of Metallica, John Legend, and Chelsea Handler. Seth MacFarlane, Michael Strahan, and “many more” will also make appearances, Apple says.

Unlike the original Carpool Karaoke, some scenes will take place outside of the car. In the trailer below, we see scenes shot in a launderette, at a wedding, on a basketball court, and in a helicopter.

We still don’t have a launch date for Carpool Karaoke, which is exclusive to Apple Music, but Apple says it is “coming soon.” You will almost certainly need an Apple Music subscription priced at $10 a month to enjoy it.
