Michelle Obama didn’t have time to worry about Melania Trump stealing her words this week.

That’s because the First Lady was a bit busy… singing some carpool karaoke with James Corden!

At the outset of this segment, we saw Corden pick Obama up from The White House and make funny small talk with her until the two broke into a few versions of a few major hits.

They danced along to ​Stevie Wonder’s "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours" and Beyoncé’s "Single Ladies," for example, and then sang "This Is For My Girls."

The latter is the power anthem inspired by the Let Girls Learn initiative and the 62 million girls around the globe who do not have access to education.

"We just dropped the mic into the hive," Obama said in response to their take on Beyonce, hilariously adding:

"We were making honey in the Beyhive. We were making honey to put in our Lemonade."

Obama also admitted it was only the second time in seven-and-a-half years that she’s "been in the passenger seat, listening to music, rocking out like this."

(The other time? A few months ago when daughter Malia was learning to drive.)

After discussing the First Couple’s Secret Service code names (she’s Renaissance, her husband is Renegade) – along with the First Lady joining Snapchat to document a trip to Liberia, Morocco and Spain in support of her Let Girls Learn initiative – Missy Elliott suddenly appeared in the back seat.

Yes, Missy Elliott!!!!

The unexpected trio sang "This Is for My Girls" before launching into the singer’s 2001 hit "Get Ur Freak On."

Simply put, it was awesome.
