Here Are Two New Songs from Empire’s Second Season. (Pitbull Makes a Cameo.)

Fox just released two new songs from Empire’s much-anticipated second season, and in one, Pitbull even makes an enthusiastic cameo. “No Doubt About it” (also featuring Jussie Smollett, who plays Jamal Lyon) is as infectiously danceable as one would expect, with such brazen, party-friendly lyrics as, “Aint nothing more important to me right now / than this shot of tequila.”

“Ain’t About the Money,” which features Smollett and Yazz, aka Bryshere Y. Gray, aka Hakeem Lyon, is a more seductive number, and sticks closely to the show’s central theme: “Ain’t about the money,” the main refrain chants. “It’s about the power.”
