Jussie Smollett is moving onward and upward. The 31-year-old actor has seen much success with his role on FOX’s smash hit, Empire, which continues to see new additions to its 13.8 million viewers with each episode.
Throughout the course of the season, Smollett’s character, Jamal Lyon, has showcased some applaudable pipes. But forget the show’s fictional Empire Records. That’s small stuff. Smollett has reportedly just snagged a spot at Columbia Records in real life. He revealed the good news to Entertainment Weekly.
“There will be a Jussie Smollett album. I signed to Columbia,” he said when asked about future music plans. “So darling [Laughs] I’m label mates with Beyoncé and Adele and Barbra Streisand.”
Congrats all around to Jussie! Sample a taste of what’s to come with his song from Empire, “You’re So Beautiful.”
