The latest episodes of FOX Empire has been on my DVD for a while and I JUST got a chance to watch them. (ICYMI) Y’all… I almost hit the roof when Hakeem (Bryshere Gray) and Jamal (Jussie Smollett) performed the song “Good People”!! These are two of the most amazing artist and this is certainly going on my playlist 🙂
Check out the video:
SO much depth, meaning and power behind that whole scene with the family handling Andre Lyon’s (played by Trai Byers) bipolar disorder in their own way. The instrumental alone had that gospel flavor.. sprinkled with rhythm & blues with a hint of hip hop. And most importantly, the brothers performed it with so much passion. Who wouldn’t be encouraged from that?!?!!
These words (verse from Yazz) right here though… LIFE!
“So much pain, It’s still a lesson
Sometimes it rains, It’s still a blessing
You never see the silver lining In the cloud… And so you doubt it
You never know how much you truly have Until you go without it
One day its gonna turn into another season
Your gonna see that All your tragedy You had was for another reason
Its just a temporary goodbye… So ya gotta keep ya head high
The rain is coming down and its pouring
But joy is gonna come inside the morning”
Small Mention: Hey Bryshere, I hear those “vocals”…. Can’t wait to hear more 🙂
The producers truly outdid themselves on this one and for me… this topped all of my favorite scenes from the hit series. Read all the verses here… “Good People” by Empire Cast
