According to Variety, Mariah Carey will star as Kitty, a superstar, who collaborates with Jussie Smollett’s character Jamal on an “explosive new song.” She “helps Jamal dig deep to overcome personal difficulties and reach a musical breakthrough.”

Carey joins a few other artists-turned-actors, including French Montana and Birdman, the latter of which will play himself. Taye Diggs will also appear on the season.

Season 3 of Empire begins September 21. Mariah’s episode airs October 5.
