For his new “Late Late Show” on CBS, James Corden got Mariah Carey to drive around Los Angeles and sing along with some of her music.
There’s a video of their encounter, of course, and it’s reasonably fun.
Here are two important takeaways:
1. Mariah Carey might be the only person on Earth who remembers the words to “Thirsty,” a lowlight from last year’s “Me. I Am Mariah... the Elusive Chanteuse.”
2. In addition to asking if New York, Brooklyn, uptown, Shaolin and Boogie Down are in the house, Ol’ Dirty Bastard gave a shout-out Sacramento in his intro to the remix of 1995’s “Fantasy.”
Sacramento! We’d totally forgotten about that bit of comic gold.
