The first season of Fox's television megahit Empire produced a soundtrack so catchy it reminded fans just how talented Timbaland was at producing beat-heavy hip-hop hook monsters. It was a veritable phenomenon for television in 2014-2015 and an order for more episodes was a no-brainer. However, much like the show itself, the quality of songs had become somewhat uneven, producing a lot of MOR Timbaland cuts and not as much excitement as season one hits like "Drip Drop" and "Power of the Empire." The first collection of songs from Empire's second season arrived just before its late-2015 midseason finale, cobbling together a soundtrack nearly halfway full of Jamal (Jussie Smollett) jams, a handful of Hakeem (Yazz) raps, a couple highlights from daddy mogul Lucious (Terrence Howard), and one-offs by second-tier characters like Tiana (Serayah), Veronica (V. Bozeman), Laura Calleros' (Jamila Velazquez) Mirage a Trois, and season two breakout femcee Freda (Bre-Z).
