Empire’s Secret Weapon (And No, its Not Guns or Broomsticks)…




By Joshua D. Copeland

Fox’s TV hit series Empire is breaking records left and right.  The secret formula to it’s massive success: Music.

On top of having a bar-setting cast that includes Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, along with surprise appearances by some of our favorite actors and celebrities, the original music is definitely the show’s secret weapon.

Why wouldn’t it be when you have a music producer like Timbaland shutting it down with some of the hottest beats in the industry?  Lee Daniels says Timbo’s beats really contribute to the show’s authenticity.

“Timbaland’s music is the voice of today’s generation,” Daniels says. “His music is a character in the film and plays as much of a character in the film as the characters [do.]”

For those who haven’t tuned in, Empire is a show about a drug-dealer turned music-mogul Lucious Lyon (played by Terrence Howard). Lyon learns he is dying from a fatal illness and has to decide which of his three sons will eventually take over his music empire.  Meanwhile,  his feisty ex-wife Cookie (played by Taraji P. Henson), is gunning for her piece of his company.

From the looks of things, Empire might be taking a few pages out of Glee‘s book, featuring the show’s soundtrack for the audience while adding progression of the story.

Empire‘s Taraji P. Henson shares her excitement about the show:  “There’s nothing like this on TV!” Henson explains. “People are thirsty for something different. And I could tell when I was killed off on Person Of Interest. No one saw that coming! And I was like the world is ready for something new on television.”

There has definitely been a lot of controversy to the show.  One thing we can’t deny is that the original soundtrack makes the show if not the outstanding acting talent.

What do you think about Empire‘s original soundtrack?
