Vin Diesel is one of our two biggest action stars. The other, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, stars with Diesel in America’s biggest homegrown franchise The Fast and The Furious, where undoubtedly Diesel’s the star. They drive cars across skyscrapers and make no-way-this-happens-in-real-life mid-air catches of loved ones. They brawl and they race; it’s super cool.

But that is not Diesel’s secret dream. Because what Vin Diesel really wants to do is sing. To say he sings karaoke seems diminutive—karaoke singers are generally drunk and require cajoling. Vin Diesel needs neither. Here he is just this week singing “Lean on Me” on The Tonight Show in a chipmunk voice.
Get it? With the chipmunk voice and cheesy background, it’s a joke. Only this isn’t a joke. Diesel really really loves singing. Just a few weeks ago, he went for it singing over the Selena Gomez-featuring Kygo track “It Ain’t Me.” Apparently Kygo had given him his blessing.
Of course the internet remember that time Diesel sung Rihanna’s “Stay” in that gravely (what’s gravel?), smoky (like 12 packs a day for 30 years smoker) voice of his.
Here is singing Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me,” because you wish you had this confidence.
Who could forget a few years ago when Diesel wished us all a glorious Valentine’s Day rendition of Maroon 5’s “My Heart Is Open.”
And in case you’ve somehow never watched the greatest video on the internet before…here’s Vin Diesel dancing to Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse.”
Fate of the Furious drops April 14. We’ll be watching Vin Diesel YouTube videos until then.
