‘Empire’ is the first TV soundtrack to debut at No. 1 since 2010
The soundtrack for Fox hit TV series, Empire, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart this week. “It’s the first TV soundtrack to debut at No. 1 since 2010, when three different Glee albums arrived atop the list,” billboard.com reported.
If you haven’t been watching Empire, I will boldly say, you have most certainly been missing out. Starring Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson alongside a host of impeccable new talent, the show follows the drama surrounding a family-owned music company.
The on-screen chemistry between Howard and Henson is no surprise as they have co-starred with each other in films Hustle & Flow and Four Brothers. There are also guest appearances from the likes of Jennifer Hudson, British belle – Naomi Campbell, Rita Ora and more.
Even if the show somehow doesn’t tickle your fancy, the official soundtrack should and with production from the one and only Timbaland – it’s no wonder.
The last episode of the season aired on March 18 and now it’s just a waiting game for season 2.
