She’s a professional and, you know, this is a long time coming.

- Jussie Smollett

Written by Mariah Carey, Jermaine Dupri & James “Big Jim” Wright.


3:35     Single Version with Jussie Smollett


  • GK: What about outside the music, are you doing any more acting?

    MC: I am. There's some other things on my horizon. Lee Daniels has promised me several roles soon and [sings] "I will hunt him down" if he doesn't.

    GK: Maybe we'll see you on "Empire"?

    MC: I wanted to give them a song. I thought one of these songs could be good really good for Cookie or Luscious. I have a song that I wrote with Big Jim [Wright] and Jermaine [Dupri] and I think it could be really right for the show. But Lee wants me to do a character, that's what he says. But we'll see what he does with next season.
