To celebrate the release of the season two soundtrack of Fox’s hit drama “Empire”, Columbia Records has released one of the project’s potent tracks, a duet between Jussie Smollett and Alicia Keys called “Powerful.”

The song is an anthem for world peace and harmony. “Every shade was beautifully made and powerful, there’s so much strength in you and me / Powerful, a breath away from victory / I matter, you matter, we matter,” they wail on the chorus. Alicia Keys will guest star as a pop star named Skye Summers on next week's episode (Nov. 25).
