Michelle Obama, the superwoman that she is, is the latest celebrity to ride in the passenger seat with The Late Late Show’s James Corden in his series, “Carpool Karaoke.” Despite her likely very busy work schedule, the First Lady found the time to give TV host a tour of her humble abode—“This is the Oval Office, my husband is in there somewhere—he better be, that’s where he said he was!”—and jam out with none other than Missy Elliott.

The duo live it up to Stevie Wonder, as he’s Obama’s “favorite,” Beyoncé's “Single Ladies,” and Missy Elliott’s “This is For My Girls.” Obama and Corden do Bey’s signature hand wave and dance as they belt out. “We were making honey to put in our lemonade!” Mrs. Obama jokes as the duo single-handedly kill the song and dance.

They wrapped up with Elliot’s famous “Get Ur Freak On” before the star jumps out asking if they can go for another ride.

The two talk about everything Secret Service codenames—Michelle’s is “Renaissance” and her husband’s is “Renegade”— to her initiative, “Let Girls Learn.”
