Taraji P Henson and Terrence Howard as Cookie and Lucious Lyon in the FOX drama Empire

Prepare to step into the Lyon’s den as Season 2 of Empire premieres on FOX on Thursday 24 September at 21:00 – 24 hours after the US screening!

The last time we chilled with Lucious, Cookie, Hakeem, Jamal and Andre, they gave us an amazing soundtrack! 

Ahead of the Season 2 premiere, they’ve already released No Doubt About It with Jussie Smollett (who plays Jamal) and Pitbull and Ain't About the Money with Jussie and Bryshere Y. Gray (who plays Hakeem). If these two tracks are anything to go by, Empire S2’s soundtrack is gonna have us rocking all day long!

Before we tune in for an exciting new season (remember Lucious was imprisoned in the Season 1 finale), here are our five favourite tunes from Empire Season 1.

Just when you think you can’t anymore, Jamal and Delphine (played by Estelle) are there to remind you that you can – that you’re a Conqueror. This track is definitely one of those songs that will serve as inspiration for many more years.

You're So Beautiful
Undoubtedly the anthem of the first season of Empire, You’re So Beautiful is perfection. Whether you wanna dance or just chill out, this is a must-have for any playlist. And we love when we all Go up down, up down, up down with our synchronised dance moves.

Drip Drop
This is our favourite song for hitting the treadmill or the dancefloor! The chemistry between Hakeem and Tiana (played by Serayah McNeil) is undeniable, and the scene where they filmed the music video is pure fire!

Good Enough
With Jamal belting out the notes, Good Enough is an inspirational song. With every listen, it reminds us that we are Good Enough, regardless of what others may think.

What is Love
We were hooked on Empire from the first note, when V.Bozeman (as Veronika) performed What is Love. With the high notes and simplicity of a song, What is Love set the tone for the rest of the season and its great music.

Set your reminder and remember to tune in to FOX (DStv channel 135) from Thursday 24 September at 21:00 for Empire Season 2.
