For Jussie Smollett, the trailblazing success of ‘Empire’ – which he stars in as Jamal – is cause enough to rejoice.
However, it’s now been revealed that the singer/actor also has even more reason to smile, because he’s the newest addition to the Columbia Records roster! Smollett confirmed the news himself during an interview with Entertainment Weekly. Peep a excerpt from the feature below…
There will be a Jussie Smollett album. I signed to Columbia. So darling [Laughs] I’m label mates with Beyoncé and Adele and Barbara Streisand.
Will it be Empire music or is it a whole different thing?
It’s going to be a whole different thing. 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.
The news comes on the heels of reports that FOX execs are considering taking ‘Empire’ on the road as a concert tour.
