Empire star Jussie Smollett has released “Freedom,” the first track from his debut album due later this spring. He also premiered a heartwarming music video for the song, which features actresses Tika Sumpter and Cynthia Erivo as a lesbian couple. Later in the clip, the pair arrive at a party with a mix of straight and same-sex couples.
"This video is about love. I wanted to show two people doing the everyday things that every single couple does,” Smollett explained in a statement. “I see nothing but beauty through the eyes of these characters we've created. I hope everyone else does as well. Love is freedom. Freedom is love.”
