Chuck Hodes/FOXMariah Carey hits the studio with Jussie Smollett in a new clip from her upcoming guest spot on Empire. But their recording session gets off to a rough start.
In the sneak peek, which Mariah tweeted Monday, Jussie’s character, Jamal Lyon, hits a wrong note right as they start recording their new song, “Infamous.” “Sorry, this is not my day,” he says.
Mariah, who’s playing a singer named Kitty, remains patient. “No, it’s good,” she tells him. He asks to turn the lights down in the studio and Mariah agrees they should “get the mood right.”
The scene ends with Jamal popping a pill before heading back to the mic.
Mariah’s episode airs Wednesday at 9 p.m. on Fox.
