‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Lands Music Deal

Jussie Smollett’s talents aren’t exclusively for the FOX hit series “Empire.” You can hear the actor’s sultry voice outside of the show, too, because the star just inked a deal with Columbia Records. 

That’s right! According to Entertainment Weekly, the singer is working on an album set to hit music stands later this year!

“I’m label mates with Beyoncé and Adele and Barbra Streisand,” the crooner gleamed. 

But don’t expect to hear the same type of sound you hear from his popular character Jamal Lyons. 

“It’s going to be a whole different thing,” he revealed. “Now, the Empire family will still have something to do with it. I would love for Terrence to come and oversee the production of all of the music. And I would love for Timbaland to come on and Jim Beanz. We’ve all talked and they’re all down to work on it.”

Music isn’t a new venture for Smollet. In 2012, he released an EP titled The Poisoned Hearts ClubNow the highly addictive show has given him a new platform.

We’ll be listening to the handsome beau’s upcoming project. Will you?
