Wonder's skit with James Corden saw the pair sing his greatest hits
Stevie Wonder’s ‘Definitive Collection’ has topped the iTunes UK album chart following the viral success of his ‘Carpool Karaoke’ video with James Corden.
‘Carpool Karaoke’ is a regular segment of US TV’s The Late Late Show With James Corden, which sees Corden drive famous people around while they sing along to the radio.
In the latest episode, Stevie Wonder joins James Corden to sing through his various hits including ‘Superstition’, ‘Sir Duke’ and ‘Isn’t She Lovely’. At one point, Wonder pauses to FaceTime Corden’s wife and serenade her with his famous love song, ‘I Just Called To Say I Love You.’
The video has subsequently gone viral and, as a result, the 2002 Stevie Wonder compilation ‘The Definitive Collection’ has topped the UK iTunes chart. As The Late Late Show With James Corden is only available on US TV, the UK chart position is the result of online sharing and viewing alone.

A$AP Rocky recently made a surprise appearance on Corden’s show, joining him in the car with Rod Stewart.
The Harlem rapper teamed up with Stewart and Corden for a rendition of latest single ‘Everyday’. The song itself samples Australian group Python Lee Jackson’s 1970 track ‘In A Broken Dream’, which Rod Stewart originally provided guest vocals for.
“I don’t know if I’ve ever felt as cool as I do in this moment of my life right now, I genuinely don’t,” Corden said, while Stewart referred to Rocky as a “lovely bloke”.
