The digital deluxe version of Original Soundtrack from Season 1 of Empire features seven additional songs.
Since its premiere on Jan. 7, EMPIRE's meteoric debut season has broken records and critics cannot stop raving about it. Entertainment Weekly proclaimed the show as "a character-driven, sudsy yet soulful musical drama that is both aware of the culture and about the culture." The Hollywood Reporter stated that EMPIRE is "entertaining as hell with a strong story base and great music." A powerful and unique program coupled with an extremely talented cast make it easy to see why Vulture said that "EMPIRE is a bona-fide phenomenon."
EMPIRE airs Wednesdays (9:01-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
