Empire, a music drama tv series created by Lee Daniels and Danny Strong, premiered on Fox in January 2015 and introduced the Lyon family members, headed by Empire Entertainment CEO Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) — a troubled ex – drug dealer-turned-rap musician and businessman — and Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson). Each event featured primary music made by Timbaland, with rapping and performing supplied by the stars, including Terrence Howard, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon), Bryshere “Yazz” Grey (Hakeem Lyon), and Serayah McNeil (Tiana Dark brown). After every episode shown, Columbia released digital download deals of the tunes that premiered. Lots of the songs strike Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Tunes graph, including Hakeem’s “Drip Drop,” Jamal’s “Maintain YOUR CASH,” as well as the duo’s “Cash for Nothing at all.” An imperfect compilation from the tunes, Empire: Unique Soundtrack from Time of year 1, premiered in March 2015 and reached the very best from the Billboard 200. When the next season started that Sept, the digital produces resumed with an increase of songs made by Timbaland. Featuring visitor places from Petey Pablo, Timbaland, and Pitbull, the 1st volume of tunes from time of year two from the series concentrated primarily on Jussie Smollett’s Jamal (who shows up on 5 of 11 songs), with imaginary sibling Hakeem (Yazz) getting only three places (one along with his Latina woman group, Mirage a Trois).

Time of year 2, Vol. 2 found its way to 2016, adding Yo Gotti towards the set of the show’s visitor music artists and peaking at quantity 26 within the Billboard 200.
