While season two of Empire isn't set to premiere for another two months, the anticipation behind the cast's new additions is making it that much harder for fans to wait. One music star whom viewers can expect to see in September is R&B heartthrob Tyrese.


Taking to Instagram on Thursday, July 9, the show's creator, Lee Daniels, made the official announcement:

Exciting stuff! The great news comes off the heels of reports that "Motivation" singer Kelly Rowland is also set to join the cast as Lucious Lyon's mother.

So there's Tyrese and potentially Kelly Rowland. All that's needed now is you! You read right. Empire is holding a contest for fans to recreate a song from the show and the winning prize is a big one: a guest role in the second season as an Empire Records artist. Be on the lookout for the Empire promo bus — it's gold, you can't miss it — that will be traveling across the country this summer.

While you practice your scales, watch Tyrese dish on Black Rose being his last solo album in the BET exclusive clip below: is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
