All Def Digital and Spotify Partner for “Traffic Jams”

James Corden was surely on to something when he introduced “Carpool Karaoke” on his late late nightly show.

It has all the right elements: comedy, celebrities, music, and a whole lot of loud singing as he and his special guest(s) cruise to the show’s L.A. studio.

Now, take those components and toss in the hip-hop flare of Russell Simmon’s All Def Digital platform and streaming service Spotify and you have the progressive series, Traffic Jams.

The music-centered show offers quite a twist from Corden’s karaoke bit. Traffic Jams teams an artist with a producer they’ve never worked with before and they have only one hour to create a hot song that they will perform in front of a live crowd. In addition to working together for the first time, the artists have to create the banger while in the backseat of a car during L.A. traffic.

Hence the title…

The series, hosted by comedian DoBoy, debuts on April 14 through Spotify.
