Coinciding with the Friday release of her new album, Glory, Britney Spears appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden Thursday night for a brand-new edition of “Carpool Karaoke.” Dressed in a black lace top and sporting a black choker and black sunglasses, Britney played coy with Corden when he asked her what one of her most famous songs, "Oops!...

Last year, Meghan Trainor revealed she'd written and recorded a song with Harry Styles of OneDirection, but she didn't say when, or if, we'd ever hear it.  Well, we'll finally get our chance in October -- except Harry isn't the one singing on it. Michael Buble told ET Canada he's recorded the song, called "Someday," as a duet with Meghan on his upcoming album, Nobody But Me.  "For the first time ever, I’ve recorded an original [song] that I didn’t write,” he added.
