Empire's second season debuts this fall. However, with 18 episodes this time, it'll be broken up in two parts: a fall half and then a long wait 'till the spring half. To sweeten that deal, Fox chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman just announced that Ne-Yo will write music for the show, joining producer Timbaland in that role.
There are no plans to have Ne-Yo act in the series.
Will Ne-Yo be able to top the greatness of Hakeem's 'Drip Drop'?
