Mary J. Blige, Kerry Washington and Taraji P. Henson in a 2015 commercial for Apple Music.

The 2015 Emmys featured an unexpectedly delightful music moment when Mary J. Blige joined forces with two of TV’s best actresses -- Taraji. P Henson (Empire) and Kerry Washington (Scandal).

In a new Apple Music commercial, Blige invites Henson and Washington over to her house to sing along to some tunes, air drum and reminisce about Slick Rick. Of course, the main point was to remind you that Apple Music exists, costs $9.99 a month and creates playlists for you based on your listening habits.

“It’s like you have a boyfriend who makes you a mixtape in your laptop!” Washington exclaims during the commercial. Ummm…sure. Regardless, it’s awesome seeing these three together. Check it out right here
