Mary J. Blige likes to sing about “no more drama,” but drama is exactly what she signed on for when she agreed to her latest project.

The Grammy winner has sung to Hillary Clinton and released new music in recent weeks, but now she’s joined the cast of How to Get Away with Murder — and PEOPLE can exclusively reveal the first photo of her in character.

Blige will star in the Oct. 20 episode of the ABC drama playing Annalise’s (Viola Davis) hair stylist.

The episode — entitled “It’s About Frank” — will jam backed with more than just Blige’s debut. The mystery behind the Annalise “killer” flyers takes a surprising twist as Frank’s (Charlie Weber) troubled past is exposed and a shocking new discovery changes everything about the night of the fire that is central to the mystery for season 3.

How to Get Away with Murder airs Thursdays (10 p.m. ET) on ABC.
