Empire is the runaway hit TV drama for Fox that is known in large part for the way Empire weaves music into each storyline, as reported by the Inquisitr, creating a soundtrack that has risen to the top of iTunes, even beating out established musical artists such as Madonna, Sam Smith, Taylor Swift, and others, reports the Detroit Free Press.
Well, it appears the official Empire Twitter account has recently put out a call for musicians, singers, rappers, hip-hop artists, and producers — or whatever show producers have in mind when they throw out the term “music artist” — to potentially appear on the second season of the show.
“So you think you have what it takes to appear as the next

Meanwhile, the news about Empire seeking music artists is receiving plenty of retweets and “favorites” on Twitter. The show has gained so many viewers, increasing each Wednesday evening as the show aired, publications like Time have deemed Empire a game changer as they publish lengthy reviews of the entire first season.
Of course, with any good success comes a bit of controversy, such as the Huffington Post describing how Empire got some factors about music therapy right, while getting other things about the process of using music to heal emotional issues wrong. Either way, fans are proving their allegiance to the show.
