USA – Trevor Noah is set to swap comedy for a sing-along next week as a guest star with mockingbird, Shakira, on Apple Music’s Carpool Karaoke: The Series.

The South African born funny-man shared the announcement on Twitter, adding, “I’m driving and Shakira is singing, a match made in heaven!”

Noah gained international recognition in 2015 when he secured a spot as host of The Daily Show, an America satire news show on Comedy Central. 

He has since made appearances on several US late-night talk shows, including on The Late Late Show with James Corden on which the karaoke series aired until technology giant, Apple, bought the rights to the feature last year.

The show reveals celebrities sitting in a vehicle on the busy streets of a picturesque town singing along to their favourite songs that are playing on the car radio.

In the trailer for the upcoming episode, Noah and Colombian-born Shakira, drive across Barcelona, Spain, singing to some of Shakira’s hit songs, including Whenever, Wherever and Hips Don’t Lie.

"This is my sexy dance face," boasts Noah to a laughing Shakira.


The full episode airs on Apple Music on Tuesday.
