Remy also gave some inside scoop into the show, revealing that she’s actually the first to get a recurring role, unlike other stars who have made guest appearances on the show.
“It’s pretty cool,” she said excitedly while sharing the announcement.
Remy then went on to dish some details on who would be acting alongside her on the show and explained how she started off with writing rhymes for the show behind-the-scenes, and then from one day to the next, the team asked her to consider having a role.
She admitted that she was initially disinterested as the role would see her playing herself in real life, but eventually, she came around.
Remy also shared that the first episode she shows up on isn’t going to air until the first week of January.
Along with Remy’s announcement, on Thursday, November 18, Zahir McGhee, the creator of ABC’s Queens, let out a teaser on Twitter hinting that Remy would appear on the drama show.
