The first two steps are OK, music and then empty track (latter selected).
Go to the start (home key) and press record (append record, depending
on preference, this would be R or Shift+R)
Naturally, you have to wear headphones for this, otherwise the music
bleeds into the mic.
That gives you two tracks, music and voice but no mix, this is done
automatically on export.

In the older versions of Audacity, if you sang along with a karaoke track,
you would first import the track, then create a new track which would
track 2, and start recording. As the recording started, Audacity would
automatically create a track 3, which would be the mix of tracks 1 and 2.
the newer versions of Audacity, if you record with overdubbing and choose
record as a new track, when the recording is finished and you play it back,
you discover that Audacity recorded your singing and also the instrumental
track as it was being played back during your singing. So, now you have a
secondary instrumental track in the mix. How do you avoid it? If I were to
choose to append to existing track instead of new track, or if I turned off
overdubbing, I would not hear the instrumental track at all, so I would be
unable to follow along. But if I overdub, the overdubbing is recorded onto
the new track.
