ABOUT THE SONG

  • Empire fans have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Mariah Carey on the Fox series. Co-creator Lee Daniels, a good friend of Carey’s, has been teasing her involvement in the series since the beginning. Well the pop star finally makes her debut next week as Kitty, and EW has the exclusive premiere of “Infamous,” the track Carey recorded with the cast and Jussie Smollett, who plays Jamal. 

    Carey’s character is a huge singer — obvs — who comes to help Jamal get his confidence back in the studio. Smollett, an unabashed Carey fan, says it was incredible working with the star. “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.”
