A droid and a musician, in perfect harmony.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens’s breakout star is already inspiring the next generation of musicians.

Lovable droid BB-8 is The Late Late Show bandleader Reggie Watts’s current muse, and from their interactions, it’s easy to see why. His dialogue in binary almost sounds like music (even if all he’s doing is cursing up a storm), and all Watts needs is a few beats to get him started on a magically catchy tune that captures BB-8’s loyal nature—and our hearts.

When can BB-8 join the band?
