Earlier this month, Rowland gust starred on the series as the character Lucious Lyon’s mother in a flashback scene. Now from tonight’s episode of “Empire” (titled “Be True”) comes music from the accompanying episode, a song performed by Rowland called “Mona Lisa.” It’s a sweeping ballad from the 1950 film Captain Carey, U.S.A which was popularized by Nat King Cole.

Meanwhile, Jamal gets busy working on his music with Ne-Yo (guest star Ne-Yo). Also, Hakeem begins a tender romance with the lead singer of his girl group, and Andre takes steps to rid his soul of past sins.”
