R&B crooner Tyrese has been hinting at starring on the hit FOX series “Empire.” And now, we finally have confirmation that he will be actually on the show and who he will play.

During a sitdown on “The Wendy Williams” show last week, Black Ty wasted no time to let everyone know “he’s coming soon” when asked if he would be appearing on the show. He will play Taraji P. Henson/Cookie Lyon’s love interest. He confirmed, “Yea me and Taraji, we have to do what we do. I’m coming to get my girl back. All them dudes on there kissing on my girl. I’m kind of done with seeing all that. You know this chocolate is spreading [laughs].” YES! Baby Boy‘s Jody & Yvette are reuniting and we’re SO here for it! Peep his interview above.

No word on which episode he’s going to pop up on. We can’t wait to see Taraji and Tyrese PLUS Terrence Howard on the screen together. Tell us how you think Ty will be added in the mix down below.
