'Empire' Soundtrack Set to Top Madonna for Number One Debut!

Jussie Smollett and Bryshere Gray pose for photos while stopping by the Music Choice studio on Tuesday (March 17) at Room 53 in New York City.

The two Empire stars weren’t the only ones from the show doing press in the Big Apple. Grace Gealey was seen dropping by the Essence office. See a pic below!

It was just revealed that Empire‘s soundtrack, which was released last week, is going to have a number one debut on the Billboard 200 chart, topping Madonna‘s new album.

While the official numbers aren’t in yet, Deadline is reporting that Empire will be scoring the first network TV soundtrack featuring songs performed by the original artist to top the chart since Miami Vice back in 1986.

    Nice moment for Empire…in a few months no one will remember. Tough go for an artist these days after 30+ years, fact that she’s also at the top is impressive+. Rebel Heart is her best in years, excellent album.

    Madonna will be number one – hence why it’s taking so long for the official release. They are factoring the CD sales from ticket purchases – Madonna will be number one – if she isn’t then something is fishy and rigged.

    Your last sentence proves that you’re delusional. I hope Empire is #1 just for that.

    Actually, in a few months everyone will be watching Empire Season 2.

    True, good point. It’s not for me but that goes for the vast majority of TV…I’d be happy if Empire could knock NCIS off the top pls :) So much for the notion of creativity in television land…

    Kudos to Empire, kudos to Madonna 35yrs in.
