There's a whole new meaing to the song "Chains."

Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato have shared many rides in the 10 years they’ve been friends. None, however, have been quite like their trip with James Corden.

The Late Late Show host was at his singing and probing best as he took the wheel for a "Carpool Karaoke" session through Los Angeles with the pop-star pair.

When Corden wasn’t grilling Lovato and Jonas about their luck in love, the trio was belting out Lovato’s “Heart Attack” and “Stone Cold,” Jonas’ “Close” and “Jealous,” and DNCE’s “Cake By the Ocean.”

Corden didn’t waste any time exploring the nature of the Jonas-Lovato relationship. “I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I kinda go for older guys, no offense,” responded Lovato, looking in Jonas’ direction.

Lovato then teased Jonas about his dating history with Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez. The timeline was “Cyrus, Gomez, Cyrus, Gomez, and then I don’t know what else happened,” she said, as a clearly embarrassed Jonas asked to change the subject. Tough luck. Corden then asked about Jonas’ purity ring phase and, prompted by their performance of Jonas "Chains," he checked out whether the singer had ever been tied up. Yes, apparently. Jonas had once been “literally chained to the wall” as he performed a song in a gay club.

Corden also used the occasion to audition for a part in Jonas and Lovato’s joint Future Now tour, which kicks off next month. The British funnyman was put through his paces as they stopped the car for an impromptu busking stint with Lovato’s “Confident,” to the delight of dozens of onlookers. Watch the clip below.
