Mariah Carey has recorded a new song that will debut as the theme of ABC’s Black-ish spinoff.

ABC announced Monday (Aug. 5) that Carey has co-written and sings the theme music to Mixed-ish. Carey says in a statement that she loves the show’s pilot, which focuses on the 1980s upbringing of Tracee Ellis Ross’ character, Rainbow.

Carey says she has wanted to collaborate with Black-ish’s creators for some time, and providing music for a show focused on a biracial woman like herself is a natural fit.

Mixed-ish is set to premiere on ABC on Sept. 24. It stars Arica Himmel as young Rainbow, and Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Tika Sumpter as her parents.
