An Empire and Star crossover has officially happened, but it’s a different kind of crossover than you might be used to. To announce it’s pair up on Wednesday night’s on Fox starting on September 27th, stars of both Lee Daniels shows including Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Trai Byers, Serayah, Queen Latifah, and Benjamin Bratt came together to record a cover for an Empire season one hit song “You’re SoBeautiful”.
“It’s nice for us to have this overlap of Star and Empire,” said Empire star Howard about the collaboration. Star’s Jude Demorest added, “To be able to work with and get to know Jussie and Yazz and Serayah is just really cool, even for viewers to see that kinda collide.” Fans will also be happy to know that the chemistry between Hensen and Latifah on set of the video was one hundred percent real. “It was just pure fun,” Latifah said.
“The two sets of casts obviously live in two different worlds: Atlanta where Star and her girls are at they’re aspiring to get to the level of an Empire. They get in the studio and they are dreaming about performing with Jamal.” said director Chris Robinson about the plot of the video. You can check out the full music video directed by Robinson below:
