Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Beyoncé's Lemonade, an hour-long visual album that tackles the subjects of black womanhood, infidelity, and heartbreak, does not exactly make for what one could call a "lighthearted viewing experience." But thanks to the inventor of the past year's most pleasant franchise, Carpool Karaoke, Lemonade has now been given the James Corden stamp of upbeatness.

On the Late Late Show last night, he debuted a parody of the Beyoncé work, but changed the theme to be about his own experience writing jokes for his nightly monologues. In all fairness, it's quite hilarious, and even includes a reference to a certain "Jimmy with the good hair." (But whooo?) Watch it below.
