“Girls just wanna have fun,” right? Well, this particular episode of “Carpool Karaoke” definitely shows this Girls Trip cast having loads of it. Watch.
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA — As you probably know, The Late Late Show with James Cordon started something called “Carpool Karaoke.” It’s become a national hit.
There’s a spinoff…
Well, it seems that Apple Music is getting a taste of the prize as well and is starting its own Carpool Karaoke: The Series, according to Hollywood Reporter.
One of its first episodes is with the cast of the upcoming movie Girls Trip.

The Hollywood Reporter discusses the episode as follows.
“The pair slammed on the brakes as Latifah joked that maybe the series — which debuts Aug. 8 — should be called ‘Car Crash Pool Karaoke.’ Joined by castmates Regina Hall and Tiffany Haddish, Smith and Latifah pulled out the bullhorns and t-shirt cannons to encourage fellow drivers to go see the comedy, which opens July 21. And, of course, they sang a bit of Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.'”
You can watch the episode preview via the video below.
As you can see, they were helping promote their movie during the episode with various gimmicks. It’s all in good fun, honestly.
And, even if not by name, who doesn’t know their faces?
It’s a car filled with Black success — Black female success, at that.
Each of the women in the vehicle have continued a long-standing run of entertainment affluence within the community.
Have you heard about it?…
Too, given the theme of the movie, who could ask for a better cast?
If you haven’t really heard about Girls Trip, essentially, it’s a depiction of how regular friends may act on particular vacations. As many people tend to be, this movie is a bit “unfiltered.” It’s all about the “turn up.”

The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) describes the film as follows.
“When four lifelong friends travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, and there’s enough dancing, drinking, brawling, and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.”
According to the source, the movie’s budget is an estimated $28 million.
You can watch the film’s trailer below.
WARNING: The following video contains explicit language. Viewer discretion is advised.
As you can see, the movie is about girls “just wanting to have fun.”
While there’s a lot going on in the Black community these days, it’s perfectly okay to have a movie just for laughs.
Yes, Blacks are getting gunned down by those who are supposed to help protect us as American citizens. Yes, there’s all kinds of racism showing its vile face within the United States’ population as well as its systems and institutions.
Yes, these are serious matters to consider, and we’ve got to work together to solve them.
However, at the same time, we still have to be able to laugh — for our sanity’s sake.
Although while too much “turn up” isn’t good for the health — or the bank statement — there are times when, in life, it becomes necessary as a coping method to take your mind off the constant influx of injustice we’re experiencing in America.
This is a movie to enjoy for what it is — not for something of a deeper meaning.
Just as much as the next person, I’m ready for Black Renaissance 2.0 to happen.
Yet, while we work on that, you can still…
Watch. Smile. Laugh.
