'Empire' Releases Season 2 Songs From Pitbull, Ne-Yo
Empire is drip-dropping a few new tracks ahead of the hit series' season two premiere.
The Fox hip-hop drama released two new songs on the show's official Vevo page Thursday. "No Doubt About It" includes Jussie Smollett (Jamal) and Pitbull, who co-wrote the song with Ne-Yo. Pitbull is set to appear in one episode on the series, while Ne-Yo was added to the show's impressive music team back in May.
The other tune, "Ain't About the Money," features both Smollett and his TV brother Yazz (Hakeem).
Both songs will be featured on Empire: Original Soundtrack From Season 2 — Volume 1, which is slated to drop sometime later this year. Empire's first soundtrack, released shortly ahead of the season finale in May, debuted atop the Billboard 200 chart thanks to popular songs from the show like "Drip Drop" and "You're So Beautiful."
The new season of Empire premieres Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
Take a listen to the two new songs below.
