From Adele to Michelle Obama, James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke guests have been strong on star power — but there’s one guy he just can’t get buckled up.

“Kanye [West] has been booked to do Carpool Karaoke now twice and both times something came up,” the Late Late Show host explained in a new interview with British GQ. “He’ll do it eventually. He wants to do it.” (A rep for West did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.)

Naturally, a West cancellation is followed by a signature West move: a flower delivery. “[When he cancelled he sent] about three dozen white roses, of course,” said Corden. “Arranged in the shape of a cube. What could be more Kanye than that?”

Although Corden has been disappointed by West, he’s not about to give up hope they could cruise in his Range Rover alongside a special guest.

“[The dream would be] Beyoncé,” said Corden. “It would break the internet. She’s on tour right now. We’re working on it.”

It’s not just singing that has defined Corden’s new chapter since the multi-talented English performer took on hosting duties of CBS’ Late Late Show in March 2015. Corden has also taken on dancing — and it’s come with big health benefits.

“I lost 70 lbs. I want to lose another 30 lbs., maybe two stone by the time I’m 40 — that’s two years away,” he said. “I do a dance class three times a week, something called PlyoJam — it’s dance using plyometrics.”
