‘Empire‘ star and R&B singer Jussie Smollett has been entertaining us weekly with his character Jamal Lyon and delivering some killer music. Well now the actor/singer has landed a major recording deal and is working on his debut album.
“There will be a Jussie Smollett album,” Jussie told Entertainment Weekly. “I signed to Columbia. So darling [Laughs] I’m label mates with Beyoncé and Adele and Barbra Streisand.”
He revealed that although he enjoys the music he has been making on ‘Empire’ his album will sound different than that material.
“It’s going to be a whole different thing,” he says. “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.”
Kudos to Jussie, while we wait for his new music check out the full version of the song that he performed this past Wednesday on his epic “coming out” scene.
