Mimi shared a clip of her role as Kitty, a successful singer who tries to record a duet with Jamal Lyon (played by Jussie Smollett) in front of the Empire Records family. 

"I think we are about to be front and center for another Jamal flameout," warns Lucious, the Lyon patriarch in the teaser, as his son Jamal gets his mind right for his studio session.
