Mariah Carey is joining the cast of Empire, and she’s celebrating her new gig with a new song. Teaming up with her castmate Jussie Smollett, Mariah delivers a ballad titled “Infamous.”

Empire’s creator and director Lee Daniels has been teasing Mariah’s new role on the show for weeks now, and we’ll soon finally see Mimi front and center as a sexy singer named “Kitty.”

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jussie gushed about working with the reigning pop diva. “It was great,” Smollett told EW on the Chicago set of Empire. “She’s a sweetheart. She’s a professional and, you know, this is a long time coming.

“I said you mean the world to me,” sings Mariah on “Infamous.” “Say what you are is infamous/ It’s such a rush reality/ I’m so into you, I know it’s dangerous/ but I believe a greater love there’ll never be.”

You can catch Mariah Carey’s Empire debut on the small screen next Wednesday, October 5 on Fox at 9 p.m. EST. Take a listen to the new song down under.
