Kanye West Was Almost On ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Three Times — Here’s What Went Wrong

Earlier this week, The Late Late Show host James Corden tweeted out a tease for an upcoming edition of his beloved “Carpool Karaoke” series featuring none other than Ariana Grande. This makes sense: Ari’s got a new album dropping at the end of next week, so a promotional appearance on one of the buzziest music-centric late night staples will certainly help the reach.

In fact, a “Carpool Karaoke” appearance has become something of a rite of passage for superstars in the modern viral landscape. Justin Bieber, Adele, Britney Spears, Harry Styles, and even Red Hot Chili Peppers have done it; but staring at the list of guests long enough leads to one important question — when’s Kanye West’s time?

Reader, wonder no further. Tuesday night (August 7) on his show, Corden revealed — appropriately enough to Kanye’s mother-in-law, Kris Jenner — that he’s tried to get Kanye on “Carpool Karaoke” two or three times. Once, he even drove all the way to Kanye’s house, only to be told that “he’s not in the zone for it right now.”

Luckily for Corden, he later received an impressive apology from ‘Ye via a cube of flowers and a pair of Yeezys that, he joked, cost his show $ 45,000 for the failed segment.

And perhaps luckily for us — the Kanye-denied viewing populace of late-night TV — there might be hope yet. One of the other television Jimmies, Kimmel to be precise, teased an upcoming appearance by Kanye on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this coming Thursday night (August 9).

If this is true, it might open the door for a whole new round of late-night TV visits from Yeezy himself, who has been absent from traditional press rounds even with the release of his newest album, Ye, in June. It starts with Kimmel, then before you know it, Kanye’s rapping with Jimmy Fallon, nerding out with Stephen Colbert, and maybe even cruising through L.A. singing his hit songs in a large SUV with James Corden.

And if not, at least we can enjoy footage of Kris Jenner eating crickets and drinking a sardine smoothie. Oh, and she might be engaged too? A lot to process here. Check it out above.

We Break Down Where Drake’s $1 Million Went In The ‘God’s Plan’ Video

Drake has been in a giving mood, and it all came to fruition in the video for “God’s Plan.” Over the course of almost six minutes, we see crying faces, smiling children, and Drake’s generosity at the center of it all. Drizzy even hopped on Instagram stories to ask his followers to get into the giving spirit.

“I am not into challenges on IG,” wrote Drake. “I find them annoying…but today I am going to challenge everyone to just go out and do something for someone, anything, the smallest thing, just to bring another human being some joy and please tag me in it somehow so I can see all the love being spread.”

Viewers know the 6 God gave away $ 996,631.90 to the residents of Miami in the “God’s Plan” video, which begs the question — where did all of that money go? There is so much happening onscreen that if you blink, you might miss the latest good deed from Toronto’s reigning king.

Below, MTV News compiled a rundown of Drake’s best deeds and how much they cost. Unfortunately, we probably didn’t catch them all.

  1. OVO Market Sweep

    Total: $ 50,000

    Drake gave Miami residents the most epic game of Supermarket Sweep. “Anything you guys want in the store is free,” Drizzy says through a megaphone in the middle of the grocery store. According to E! News, the trip cost Graham $ 50,000.

  2. Started Out Doin’ College Shows

    Total: $ 50,000

    The Miami Hurricane reported that Drake gave a $ 50,000 check to Destiny James, a junior studying public health at the University of Miami. In an Instagram post thanking Drake, James wrote, “You don’t understand what this means to me. I would’ve never imagined this happening to me. I’m just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world. Thank you so much. God I thank you.”

  3. Icy Like the Frost School

    Total: $ 10,000

    Drake can also be seen giving the University of Miami Frost School of Music a $ 10,000 donation in the video.

  4. Toy Story

    Total: $ 69,500 donation = $ 50,000 directly to the shelter + $ 19,500 in Target gift cards to families

    Drake donated a $ 50,000 check to the Lotus House Women’s Shelter, which supports and provides for homeless women and children. On top of the donation, the Toronto rapper also handed out $ 150 Target gift cards to 130 women and toys for all the children, TMZ reports.

  5. Fast Times At OVO High

    Total: $ 25,000

    A significant portion of the “God’s Plan” video was filmed at Miami Senior High School in South Florida. Drake did more than let students be extras in the visual, He also gave $ 25,000 to the school and agreed to design OVO uniforms for the scholars, reports ABC News.

  6. Fire And Desire

    Total: $ 20,000

    The City of Miami Fire Department also got some love from Graham with a $ 20,000 check.

  7. Shut Down Saks Fifth

    Total: $ 10,000 (honestly, probably a lot more)

    The 6 God took over Saks Fifth for a special woman, Odelie Paret. The head of OVO was inspired by a Miami Herald story, which details how the housekeeper’s commute can take almost three hours as she works at a physically demanding job to support her family. Drake and Antonio Brown from the Steelers reportedly treated the woman to a spa day, dinner at StripSteak, and a shopping spree.

  8. Random Acts Of Kindness

    Total: Priceless

    Honestly, Drake gives away so much in the “God’s Plan” video it is almost impossible to calculate it all without calling up the OVO accountant. We may never know what deal Drizzy got on the cars or the stack of cash he hands out to each family. Thankfully, that isn’t the point. You don’t have to be one of the biggest rappers alive to make someone’s day. Sometimes all it takes is some well-choreographed dance moves and a kind deed.
