Spoiler! Alicia Keys is coming to Empire. Second spoiler: She appears to be making her debut as the second coming of Justine Skye and even the singer thinks so.

Alicia posted the pic above letting the world know she’d be appearing on the hit Fox show next Wednesday, November 25, as a character named Skye Summers who rocks purple hair quite reminiscent of that of the R&B singer Justine Skye. Yes, peep the irony of the names.

When Skye saw the announcement she was clearly in her feelings, taking to Instagram to say, “My check must be in the mail.” We’re kind of curious if Lee Daniels is going to break her off a little something something too because the physical likeness and the play on words is uncanny. We’ll have to tune in next week to see how this all plays out.

Do you think this is foul?

    Writers and artists alike use real people for inspiration all the time so it is possible that Skye was the inspiration for the character.
