‘Empire’ TV Show Seeks Music Artists Via Twitter

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 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 music artist? SIGN UP NOW! Think you have what it takes to appear as the next EMPIRE music artist? Sign up for more information about EMPIRE Season 2, contests and promotions, and other show news. Stay in the know, Cookie Fans!”

The link provided on the “Empire on Fox” signup page allows for musical hopefuls to enter their names and email addresses to sign up for all kinds of updates on the Empire show, and hopefully not have said email addresses sold to all sorts of spammers. After doing so, the website reminds users of their previous #BeOnEmpire contest that asks the real name of the patriarch character played by Terrence Howard, as it was revealed towards the end of the two-hour season finale episode of the first season of Empire.

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.
