On Wednesday night (Oct. 5), Mariah Carey made her much-anticipated appearance on ‘Empire,’ and performed her previously released duet “Infamous” with Jussie Smollett aka Jamal Lyon.
“I know it’s dangerous, but I believe / A greater love, there’ll never be,” sings Mariah over the Jermaine Dupri production, while Smollett delivers Auto-Tuned vocals.
Mariah played the role of mega-superstar Kitty, who mentors Jamal Lyon and helps him “overcome personal difficulties and reach a musical breakthrough.”
“It was great,” Smollett told EW of working with MC. “She’s a sweetheart. She’s a professional and, you know, this is a long time coming.”
The two will reunite in Hawaii later this year when Smollett opens for Mariah during her three shows in Honolulu on Nov. 23, 25, and 26.
