Which track did the “Lady Marmalade” singer (and recent Empire actor) select? None other than 50 Cent‘s 2003 hit single “In Da Club” — on the show, LaBelle recounted the tale of her 70th birthday, when she made the mistake of letting some of her friends pick the music. “After three songs,” LaBelle told DWTS, “I said ‘Cut it.
