Ice Cube and Jason Derulo chat with James Corden
Everyone has a mom and sometimes you have to explain things to her, like what your single called “Swalla” is about, or why you have a song called “F–k Tha Police.” How do you do that? Viewers found out on Tuesday night (May 16) when Jason Derulo and Ice Cube sat down with The Late Late Show host James Corden to talk about their famous songs and their favorite movie. HustleTV
Describing the new explicit version of “Swalla” he’s just released, Derulo said he wanted to slow the track down so you could really get the, um, feel for the lyrics. “What’s the inspiration behind the song? I’m scared to ask if I’m honest,” Corden probed innocently. “It’s up for interpretation,” Derulo said. “Is it?,” Corden replied, noting that a lot of Jason’s music is about sex and wondering how his mom feels about that.
“‘Talk Dirty’ she thought was going to end my career,” DeRulo admitted. “‘It’s just too dirty, baby, this is not you,'” his mother told him about the 2014 smash. “I’m like, ‘ma, it is me!’ And then ‘Talk Dirty’ did what it did and ‘Swalla’ came on the scene and she was like, ‘I love this!'” Cube agreed, saying moms don’t want you to do anything “until the money comes in.”

Derulo was just thrilled to be anywhere near the N.W.A legend because, as it turns out, he’s a massive Friday fan. “Friday was one of my favorite movies of all time,” Derulo told Cube about his legendary 1995 stoner comedy. “Literally I would watch it every single Friday, it was that serious.” Cube then dropped some news about the cult classic, revealing that he’s finally working on the fourth, and last chapter in the series.

“We’re working on one right now,” Cube said. “We’re gonna call it Last Friday.” Cube — who had to break the news to Corden that there’s probably not a role for him in the sequel — was, however, willing to indulge the host’s desire to learn more about the art of hand-checking in basketball while hyping his Big 3 basketball league.
