Empire – This Season’s Hottest Show

Empire – This Season’s Hottest Show


A couple weeks ago I wrote a post about new evolving television drama, Empire. I can’t lie, at first I wasn’t too sure about the show due to all the singing but I take everything negative I said back, I have completely fallen in love with the show. Everything about it, the songs corny or not I still find myself singing along. It seems as though all the singing has worked in favour for actor Jussie Smollet who plays the role of Jamal. Smollet, announced that we will be hearing more of if his musical talent as he has been signed to Columbia Records! I have not yet heard an announcement for the release date for the album but he already has a huge fan-base and we can’t wait to hear his first cut!

The shows success has everybody talking…even certain celebrity figures have a lot to say about the show. Diddy is allegedly suing empire claiming it is based on his life. Monique has been in the press quite bit recently and she is claiming she was offered the role of Cookie but is being blacklisted by Hollywood. I think it is fair to say and others will agree we are more than happy with all the members of the cast just as they are. The show has literally taken over from all my favourites and I cannot go a week without watching the latest episode. It just gets better and better! It is no wonder that the show managed to break a 23-year old television ratings record to become the first series to ever grow in total viewers.
