CBS Of course, Late Show fans knows Styles and Corden have a long friendship. Back in December 2015, Styles rode with Corden and his then-band mates Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne — just months after Zayn Malik‘s departure — for one of the most popular Carpool Karaoke segments. He then returned for a solo outing in May 2017, capping off a week-long residency on the show where he did everything from guest host to perform a slew of new songs from his self-titled solo album.
