Watch Mariah Carey & Jussie Smollett’s ‘Infamous’ Duet on ‘Empire’

Following several teases, Mariah Carey finally made a guest appearance on “Empire” last night.

The superstar’s character Kitty joined Jussie Smollett’s Jamal Lyon for “Infamous,” a poetic and catchy new love song, produced by Jermaine Dupri.

“All things are possible,” Smollett sings. “Come drink my cup, it overflows / Right now, we face the sunrise of love.”

Mariah comes in with her iconic vocals from there. “Your body closes in on mine,” she sings. “Wishes break in and justify / Sweet hurricane of love flowing with the tide.”

In its third season, “Empire” is continuing its streak as a star-studded show. Xzibit and Romeo Miller are also guests this season. Meanwhile, Mariah is set to premiere her new E! docuseries “Mariah’s World” on Dec. 4.

Watch her and Smollett’s “Infamous” duet below.
