Google Translate Songs with Idris Elba

Google Translate Songs with Idris Elba


-If you’ve ever — If you’ve
ever used Google Translate, you know it’s not
always perfect. For example, when translated
to Latvian and back, “The Tonight Show
Starring Jimmy Fallon” becomes “This is Jimmy Fallon’s
Show Tonight.” So we did the same thing with
popular song lyrics. Some people have done this
online. It’s super fun. We’re gonna try this right now. Idris, you’re my guest,
so you are up first. Here’s your microphone. -Oh, really?
Oh, that’s nice. -Yeah, very — of course. You, uh, you’re our guest. -Yeah, no, I’m the guest.
Okay. -You will be singing
the Google Translate version of “Baby Got Back”
by Sir Mix A Lot. [ Cheers and applause ] Translated, it is called
“The Baby Escaped.” [ Laughter ] -Okay.
-Roots. -Check one, check one. ♪ Unh, unh ♪ [ “Baby Got Back” plays ] Okay, okay. [ Cheers and applause ] I-I mean…
-That was fantastic. -Did anyone understand
anything I said? -No. Yeah,
that’s the fun of it. That’s the fun of it.
-Okay. -All right. All right.
It is — it is my turn. Here we go. I’ll be performing the Google
Translated version of the 1998 Britney Spears’
classic “Baby, One More Time.” -Boom. [ Cheers and applause ] -Which is now called
“Meet My Kids.” [ Laughter ] Here we go. [ “One More Time” plays ] [ Cheers and applause ] [ Cheers and applause ] -Yo, you scratched that.
-That was heartfelt. -Well done.
-Yeah. -Wow.
-That was heartfelt. You felt that?
-Yeah, I did. -That really came
from the heart. -I think that Google Translates. There must be a few poets
that work there. -Yeah. Beautiful poetry. For this last one,
let’s do a duet. -Yeah, okay.
-Is that good? -Mm-hmm.
-This is — this is… [ Cheers and applause ] This is “I’ll Make Love to You”
by Boyz II Men, but we’ll be singing
the translated version, which is called “I’ll Place
Kindness on You.” -Boom. -“I’ll Place Kindness
on You.” Roots. [ “I’ll Make Love to You”
plays ] -Ladies and gentlemen,
here we go. -♪ Oh, whoa ♪ ♪ Whoa, ohh, ohh ♪ ♪ Ay, yi, yi, yi ♪ ♪ Love on ♪ -Ladies,
I’ll always love you. -♪ Forever ♪ -No matter what you do, I’m gonna place kindness
on you. ♪ Love you, love you ♪ -And your heart
will always be mine. -Idris Elba, everybody.
-Thank you very much. -“The Dark Tower” is in theaters
this Friday. Stick around. We’ll be right back
with Ali Wentworth.

  1. it sounds like a parent was in shock and had a stroke at the same time while their baby escaped then finally snapped out of it a yelled “THE BABY ESCAPED!!!”

  2. Idris married Somali girl. Way cool! He's know American aboriginals r a hot mess. Why u think Tyler did what he did but I'm not saying he's anything like Idris but these woman don't blast their men. I like Idrises gray much better. This was defiantly not his cool nazzy way to dress knock them dead look. I guess he really didn't want to upstage the host like we know he can grey hair,beard and all. Love u Idris!

  3. “Some people have done this online.” Some people? I assume you mean Malinda Kathleen Reese. She’s the master (mistress?) of this.

  4. So hit me baby one more time is about a prostitute who is waiting to get her kids back
    after locking them in a cupboard 😂

  5. Can you rap for me please?
    Just because I'm black doesn't mean i can rap ( starts crying )
    Lets gooo 'Cause I feel like I'm running

    And I'm feeling like I gotta get away, get away, get away

  6. Is it only me or do you want some of these Google Translate Songs to be actual songs? But that won't happen because of copywrite 😔

  7. Currently on a "Google Translate Songs" marathon; my sons & husband keep checking on me. My face & belly hurt. ☠️💀👻

  8. Google translate did not re-write those songs. And Idris Elba gave it away when he was commenting on how Google translate or poets… Nonetheless that was effing hilarious! 🤣🤣🤣

  9. If The Bond franchise is smart, they will make this man the next James Bond! Seriously…. Idris' Bond would be as sexy as Sean Connery's — and THAT is sexy!!!
