Listen to the First New Songs from ‘Empire’ Season 2


Prepare yourselves: Empire unleashes an onslaught of drama, guest stars, drama, Cookie outfits, and more drama in just three weeks. To help us acclimate, Fox has released the first two original tracks of the show’s second season.

Both feature Jussie Smollett (refresher: he plays Jamal, middle Lyon son, newly out gay man, and heir apparent to the empire—for now); “No Doubt About It” also includes Pitbull, while “Ain’t About the Money” is a collaboration with Yazz. Listen to both below, and judge for yourself whether either one has the potential to be the next “Drip Drop.”
