(www.BlacksinHollywood.com) – Empire’s Season 2 is already making heads bounce. A new track, “Ain’t About The Money” (feat. Jussie Smollett and Yazz), is dark and gritty and has the classic “Empire” sound. It’s like a Disney sound that is at time predictable yet still catchy. To hear both songs, click below.
The tracks go along with the theme of Season 2 which will pick up three months after Lucious’ shocking arrest and incarceration at the end of last season. Knowing Lucious won’t be held much longer in prison, Cookie and her allies within the Lyon family make a desperate attempt to seize control of the company. But as the Lyons continue to battle each other, a bigger external threat emerges that could force them to unite.
“No Doubt About It” is a Ne-Yo penned track which features Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon) collaborating with Latino rapper Pitbull but has a polish party vibe. It’s a track that will easily be shown on the show when the family is experiencing good times. It’s a no-brainer kind of song but not a monster hit.
