Anyone else want to hitch a ride with James Corden?

The Late Late Show host has driven Mariah Carey and Jennifer Hudson around L.A., and in Thursday's episode, it was none other than Justin Bieber's turn to sit in the passenger seat to sing carpool karaoke.

"Should we listen to some music?" Corden asked.

"Let's do it," Bieber replied.

Corden cued up Bieber's 2010 single "Baby," then admitted, "I'm pumped!"

During the chorus, Bieber rolled down his window and shouted "I love you" to a stranger. Corden, meanwhile, continued to sing and dance.

"I've got to be honest, when I picked you up just now, I didn't recognize you for a minute because you had a top on," the late-night host joked. "Now, did you work out a lot for the Calvin Klein campaign?"

"Yeah," Bieber said. "And a lot for the Men's Health cover."

Corden then asked, "Did they send you unlimited pairs of Calvin Kleins?"

"They sent me a lot of Calvin Kleins," Bieber said. "Like boxes and boxes."

"Do you just wear 'em one and just throw 'em out?" Corden asked.

"Yeah," Bieber admitted.

"Do you seriously?" Corden asked in disbelief. "No way!"

Bieber said, "I definitely don't wear 'em twice. There's so many."

"Are you serious? You wear a pair of underpants once and then you throw it out? That's the life," Corden said. "I have to turn mine inside out."

Corden and Bieber resumed singing "Baby," and they even tried rapping Ludacris' verse. After Bieber got a text from a girl, Corden asked, "Have you kissed her? You haven't had kisses?" Bieber admitted that he hadn't kissed that particular girl. "You don't want to kiss before marriage, right?" the host asked. Bieber played along, telling him, "No. You can't kiss before marriage—not even hold hands."

After they finished singing "Baby," Bieber admitted that the song has "the most dislikes on the Internet," which shocked Corden.

Later, Corden asked, "Do you listen to your own music when you're making love?"

Bieber blushed and laughed, saying, "No."

Corden didn't believe him, so he asked, "You never listen to your own music when you're making love?"

"No," Bieber insisted.

"Ever?" Corden asked.

"No," Bieber told him.

"Because if I was you, and I had a girl back at my house, and we're like, 'Do you wanna go upstairs?,' and she's like, 'Sure,' I'd lay her down on the bed and I'd create like a silhouette of me in the bathroom door, do you know what I mean? Turn the light on in the bathroom but the lights are off," Corden explained. "And then I'd be like..." he said before playing Bieber's 2012 hit "Boyfriend" and singing a verse.

Corden admitted he had a problem with one the lyric about "chillin' by the fire while we eatin' fondue," telling Bieber, "That's the line where I'm out because fondue is not a good date food. You'll end up with cheese dripping down your face." Bieber disagreed, saying, "I don't know what kind of fondue you have, but in America, we have this thing called chocolate fondue. You dip strawberries in it."

"I think you put fondue in there just because it rhymes," the host said.

"Yeah," Bieber admitted. "You're right."

After Bieber explained what "swag" means, Corden asked if he had any himself. "Your swag is killin' it right now," the singer told him. "Is that a polo right now and denim jeans? It's good...I'm down with it."

The two then swapped outfits.

Corden then confessed that he'd read that Bieber can solve a Rubik's Cube in two minutes. "You wanna see me do it?" Bieber asked. Of course Corden did!

Bieber also revealed that he listens to R&B when he drives, so Corden played Boyz II Men's 1991 smash "End of the Road." Their conversation then turned a bit serious, with Corden asking where Bieber wants to be in 10 years. The pop star paused, then said, "I'll be completely secure in myself and have a family."

The Late Late Show airs weeknights at 12:37 a.m. on CBS.
