It looks like singer/dancer Chris Brown is heading to ABC to tango with the Johnson family, when he appears on next week's episode of the network's hit comedy series "Black-ish," playing a rapper named Rich Youngsta.

This is according to Entertainment Weekly who broke the news via Twitter this afternoon.




No word on whether Brown's appearance will end at just one episode, or if he'll continue in a recurring capacity.

The episode, titled "Richard Youngsta," will follow Dre (Anthony Anderson) and his excitement about doing an advertising campaign with a popular rap star (played by Brown). He becomes conflicted when Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross) and Ruby (Jenifer Lewis) suggest his work plays on negative stereotypes. Also in the episode, Bow is determined to get the family to stop eating so much take-out food. She realizes they may all be too accustomed to eating whatever they want.

EW also shared an exclusive first image of Brown's appearance which you can check out above.

Brown joins a revolving door of other celebrities who have made guest appearances on the show, including Rashida Jones, Daveed Diggs, Lorraine Toussaint, and Tyra Banks.
