Apple delays release of its 'Carpool Karaoke' series

While no reasons were given for the delay, Apple did say the series will premiere later this year.


You may have to wait if you want to watch Will Smith and John Legend perform singalongs in a car on Apple Music.

The 16-episode "Carpool Karaoke" series, produced by James Corden, will premiere later this year, according to a report by Reuters. It began life as a viral segment on CBS' "The Late Late Show with James Corden." (Editors' Note: CNET is owned by CBS, which is also producing the series.)

A launch party was supposed to happen this week, but it's been rescheduled for next Monday. This isn't the first time the launch has been delayed -- Reuters said an earlier March party was also postponed without any explanation.

"Carpool Karaoke" has been popular among online audiences. British singer Adele's segment has been viewed more than 155 million times on YouTube. Apple is banking on this new video content to draw subscribers to its platform, which currently has only 20 million users, half that of rival service Spotify.

CNET has reached out to Apple for comment.
