Tensions rise in an the forthcoming episode of Empire titled “Love Is a Smoke.” With trouble on the horizon and unexpected feelings in the air, Tory Ash -- played by Rumer Willis -- can hopefully bring the drama down a notch with her smooth-sounding ballad “Crazy Crazy 4 U.”  

Premiering exclusively on Billboard, the passionate track tugs at the heartstrings in all the right places as Willis explains the extremes of love that pulls you in. “I’m such a fool / My heart is burning for you / The stupid things that I do /I do them all 'cause of you / I’m crazy, crazy for you.” 

“I love the passion and power of this song.” Willis tells Billboard. “It reminds me of a song you would hear at a speakeasy in the '20s with an updated beat.” 

The ups and downs of the song’s theme runs parallel to the episode's thickening plot. Surprising news comes from Cookie when she reaches out to Lucious that puts him on edge about the future. Giuliana returns and is ready to stir trouble by making moves on Lucious with new plans, harboring jealous feelings for Cookie. Anika and Tariq start creating a plan of their own all the while Charlotte Frost (played by guest star Eva Longoria) holds the future and dreams of Empire Las Vegas.
