Apple Music has released another trailer for Carpool Karaoke: The Series. As with the first one, Metallica are featured, but instead of singing “Master of Puppets,” they’re going against type with Rihanna‘s “Diamonds in the Sky.” You can watch the clip above, and it also features, among others, country star Blake Shelton and Chelsea Handler belting out Bon Jovi‘s “Livin’ on a Prayer” in a bar.

The show, which will premiere exclusively through Apple Music, is an expansion on the viral video series that began on The Late, Late Show With James Corden. Metallica’s segment throws actor/comedian Billy Eichner (Difficult People, Parks and Recreation) into the mix. The five of them made headlines two months ago when they were caught by TMZ going into a supermarket and breaking into “Enter Sandman” at the deli counter. At the time, it was believed they were filming an episode of Eichner’s show Billy on the Street.

Corden, who serves as one of the executive producers, has lined up an impressive group of A-list guests for his show. In addition to Metallica and Shelton, the trailer hints at appearances by John Legend, Alicia Keys, Will Smith and Ariana Grande. They’re not restricting the cast to singers, either. NFL Hall of Famer Michael Strahan, professional wrestler John Cena and basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal are also in the mix, with the latter two humorously struggling to fit into the car.

It is not yet known when Apple plans to officially debut the series.
