Harry Styles wrapped up his four-day residency on CBS’s “Late Late Show” by starring in the latest edition of its popular lip-syncing segment “Carpool Karaoke” on Thursday night.
The segment caps off a week of the former “One Direction” member performing songs from his newly released self-titled solo album and appearing in sketches on the late-night show.
Styles opened up the “Carpool Karaoke” segment by celebrating his newfound independence.
“I feel like I have more control over the buttons,” Styles told host James Corden.
“I don’t know if you’re speaking on a different level, if you saying you have more control over the buttons is something deeper,” the host responded, presumably referring to Styles’ breakout from his boy band.
The segment features the duo rocking out to Styles’ solo single “Sign of the Times” and the songs “Sweet Creature” and “Kiwi” off “Harry Styles.”
They also covered pop hits like” Outkast’s “Hey Ya” and Lionel Richie and Diana Ross’ “Endless Love,” which led Corden to suggest that they reenact rom-com scenes from “Notting Hill” and “Titanic.” That involved some amusing intimate moments between them.
“In a cool way,” Styles said, breaking up the seriousness of the moment.
