Empire star Jussie Smollett maybe known for his role as Jamal on the FOX hit show, but now the singer/actor is ready to show the world what he has to offer musically outside of Empire.
Last week Jussie released his debut single Freedom and today, Jussie unleashed the official video directed by Frank Gatson.
The powerful visual stars Tika Sumpter and Cynthia Erivo, who play a couple living their best life together and surrounded by those they care about. When debuting the video on Complex yesterday Jussie spoke about the story of his new video.
“This video is about love,” Smollett tells Complex. “I wanted to show two people doing the everyday things that every single couple does. I see nothing but beauty through the eyes of these characters we’ve created. I hope everyone else does as well. Love is freedom. Freedom is love. Enjoy!”
