Kanye West finally joined James Corden for Carpool Karaoke - but the segment sees the pair swap four wheels for a vehicle a little more extra.

After many attempts to get the rapper on his show, it seems Corden managed to seal the deal by replacing his regular SUV with a jet.

On Monday – a few days after West finally dropped his (very) delayed Jesus Is King album – the British TV host debuted new version of his hit Late Late Show segment called Airpool Karaoke, in which he and West took to the skies to sing and have a candid conversation.

The pair flew over Los Angeles during the sketch which begun with Corden finding out his flight to the city was cancelled. He then called West and asked for a ride on his plane.

It just so happens that West was also with his entire choir from his special Sunday Service, making it the first time in Carpool Karaoke history that live music was performed in the segment.

In between the gospel singing, the Jesus Walks rapper opened up on family, religion and his struggles with mental health and joked that he felt he had been married to Kim Kardashian West for “500 years” instead of five.

Speaking about his parternship with the mother of his four children, West explained: “Marriage years are different than human years.

“Like you know how dog years are like seven years? Every marriage year is like 100 years.”

Candidly discussing his personal life, the musician said his loved ones have struggled to help him during some of his darkest moments.

“People in my family were praying for me, but they couldn’t call me and scream at me. I’m a grown man,” he said.

“But it was God that came and put this thing on my heart and asked if I was ready to be in service to him.

Airpool Karaoke featured 100 choir members

The Grammy winner added: “I have no regret and no shame.”

The segment came to an end with a lively performance of Selah, from Jesus Is King, before the plane landed and the pair ended Airpool Karaoke with a hug.

The sketch comes after Jesus King was released last week.

It had been set to drop at midnight on October 25, but West later revealed it still wasn’t quite ready.

At 5pm that day Friday the album suddenly arrived on all major streaming services.

West, who has recently confirmed his conversion to Christianity, had tweeted to explain that the delay was due to the mixing on the tracks Everything We Need, Follow God and Water.

He wrote on Twitter: "To my fans, Thank you for being loyal & patient.

"We are specifically fixing mixes on 'Everything We Need' 'Follow God' & 'Water'.

"We not going to sleep until this album is out!"

Jesus Is King is the follow-up to West's 2018 album, Ye.
