Characters Jamal (Jussie Smollett) and Hakeem (Bryshere Y. Gray) will perform a rendition of the late legend's 'Let's Go Crazy' in the fourth episode of the upcoming fourth season. It will take place at a birthday party, so "everybody, all of the cast, is going to be dressed in a Prince theme," says executive producer Sanaa Hamri.
Hamri was a close friend to Prince, even directing the music video for 'Musicology.' She reveals Prince was an avid watcher of Empire and was even talking about appearing on the show.
After these terrible soapy shenanigans (really, an amnesia plot device?), I am done with Empire but this is sweet. Anybody still hanging on?
