After multiple delays, Apple announced Tuesday “Carpool Karaoke: The Series” will finally premiere Aug. 8 on Apple Music.

The show will be Apple’s first original video series, inspired by CBS’ "The Late Late Show with James Corden" segment. Apple reportedly bought rights to the segment last year. Apple had planned to launch the show in April, but then pushed the date back without giving a reason.

The company released a trailer for the series in February that featured celebrities including John Cena, Shaquille O’Neal, Ariana Grande, Seth MacFarlane, Alicia Keys and John Legend. Apple said Tuesday the show will feature musicians, television, film, sports and pop culture personalities. The celebrities will be “buckling up and belting out their favorite songs for a road trip filled with comedy, conversation and music,” Apple said.

The show will feature a different set of superstars every Tuesday.

“Celebrity pairings include Will Smith and James Corden; Miley, Noah, Billy Ray and the entire Cyrus family; Shakira and Trevor Noah; Game of Thrones stars Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams; Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith; John Legend, Alicia Keys and Taraji P. Henson; LeBron James and James Corden; and many more,” Apple said in a post.

New episodes will be available exclusively to Apple Music subscribers in more than 100 countries.

The show is just another example of Apple’s push for video content. The company recently released its exclusive documentary on former One Direction singer Harry Styles on Apple Music. The movie “Harry Styles: Behind the Album” goes behind the scenes of the singer's first solo album.

Last week, Apple Music released the trailer for the documentary about Bad Boy Records, the label founded by Sean Combs. The movie, called "Can't Stop, Won't Stop: A Bad Boy Story," is to be released June 25 on Apple Music.

Apple is expected to release as many as 10 original shows and documentaries by the end of this year, including’s "Planet of the Apps" and documentaries about hip-hop label Cash Money Records and music impresario Clive Davis.

Apple’s new content is an effort to push Apple Music above other rival streaming services, including Spotify, Tidal and Pandora.

Apple’s upcoming iOS 11, which is rumored to roll out this September alongside the iPhone 8, iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus, will reportedly include an update that better showcases Apple original video content.

Apple Music executive Jimmy Iovine said in an interview with Bloomberg last month he is focused on music-related video, including a possible sequel to R. Kelly’s "Trapped in the Closet," a rap opera. Iovine said he has discussed possible ideas with Brian Grazer, the producer of Fox’s "Empire" and "Genius," and with director J.J. Abrams. The Apple executive has also met with Warner Bros. Television about creating a show based on the life of Dr. Dre.
