History of Rap 6
This past week, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake debuted their sixth installment of the “History or Rap,” the segment where they don’t really give a history lesson, but more or less just rap snippets from an assortment of hip hop tracks on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. As always, the duo does not fail to entertain. This time around they performed everything from “Fight the Power” by Public Enemy, to Ignition (Remix) by R. Kelly, to “My Way” by Fetty Wap.
Rod Stewart - Carpool Karaoke

Although the The Late Late Show with James Corden may be the sixth most watched late-night talk show, it hasn’t stopped well-known celebrities, including Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey, and Iggy Azalea from partaking in Corden’s Carpool Karaoke. The segment, which is half interview, half jam session, takes place in Corden’s car as he and a musician drive to his studio. The other day, Corden might have had his most famous celebrity musician yet; a British rocker named Rod Stewart. The most interesting tidbit we learned from Stewart is that when toured with The Faces they would check into Holiday Inns as Fleetwood Mac because they were banned from the hotel chain for “smashing up hotel rooms.” Also featured in the clip is rapper A$AP Rocky, who pops out from behind the backseat to perform a verse from his recently released track, “Everyday.” The popular tune features sample vocals by Rod Stewart from the 1972 Python Lee Jackson song, “In a Broken Dream.” We hope there's more segements of Carpool Karaoke to come.
Kid Theater “Magic Mike Edition”
Channing Tatum stopped by Studio 6B for a recent episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in support of the upcoming film, Magic Mike XXL. While there, he and Fallon partook in a “fun thing” where they performed a few scenes from the new film. However, instead of performing actual scenes from the movie they reenacted scripts written by elementary aged kids. The children’s only direction for writing their scripts? Write a scene based on what they think a movie titled “Magic Mike” would be about. The funny thing is a few of these scripts could definitely be misconstrued into something much less innocent than they really are.
This week, people are talking about the "Best Song Ever," a "Full House" semi-reunion, and Kristen Wiig as Michael Jordan.
1D's "Best Song Ever"
Earlier this week, Directioners were super excited when One Direction's new single, "Best Song Ever," leaked a few days early. The song was set to come on July 22, and the band was even releasing daily video teasers culminating in a countdown until the song's release. With only five days to go, the song leaked online July 17. To be fair, the band had been teasing the song since they released the trailer for their 3D movie, "This Is Us," back in June. I doubt this will hurt sales even a little bit.
