Tinashe is helping Jamal with his visual album

Hakeem asks Tinashe if she wants to have some drinks but she says no because she’s busy working with Jamal.  Tinashe explains that she’s helping Jamal with his visual album.  Jamal was planning to include Cookie and Angelo at the end of the album.  Angelo told Jamal that he was planning to propose to Cookie but they ended up breaking up moments after he tried to put a ring on it.

Hakeem explains that he’s down to do a duet and he tells them he’ll put Schoolboy Q on notice.  Hakeem is referring to Tinashe and Schoolboy Q’s 2014 song “2 On”:

We’re hoping Hakeem falls back.  I’m all about TAKEEM and I don’t want to see Tiana in another fight.  She had beef with Laura over Hakeem and she had an unforgettable cat fight with Nessa.

Who Is Barkley Hendricks? Empire – Art, Paintings

Barkley Hendricks was a painter whose work appeared on the Empire TV show.  Sadly, he passed away on April 18, 2017.  His oil painting, “Lawdy Mama” was featured in the second season of Empire.  Hendricks is best known for his life-sized paintings of Black people in empowered depictions.

Hendricks created bold paintings of Black people

The Black Power Movement gave African Americans confidence in the 1960s.  There weren’t many paintings that showed Blacks in positions of power.  Hendricks filled that void by creating paintings that celebrated Blacks.   Hendricks’ contributions helped make the Empire TV show possible.  He paved the way for today’s Black artists and entertainers.

Lee Daniels and Danny Strong have done a wonderful job creating a platform for Black painters.  Some of the most important Black artists of all time have work on the walls of Lucious’ mansion.  This work may not receive the attention it deserves without Empire.  The series continues to break down barriers and we’re loving every second of it.  Barkley Hendricks was a pioneer and we will never forget his contributions.

Charlotte and Andre

Rhonda Lyon spoiled Andre.  She was willing to do anything for him, including sleep with other men and allow him to sleep with other women.  Andre doesn’t understand that he’s no longer in an open relationship.  Rhonda is dead and Nessa is nothing like her.  Andre flirted with Giuliana, leading Nessa to warn him that she doesn’t tolerate cheating.

Andre is the oldest son of Lucious and Cookie Lyon, explaining why he doesn’t listen.  Lucious recently tried to fire Andre but the company’s board members blocked the move.  Andre will most likely get close to Charlotte to make Vegas work.  While he can’t be trusted, he’ll do anything to make sure Empire succeeds.

watching it, of course, because, after all, it was the season premiere. Why
wouldn’t anyone have watched it? After a very long wait, the Lyons came back to
our screens. The little screens and the big screens. Whatever you watched it
on, you had to have seen the fight between Lucious and Cookie, right? It was
amazing!

Jamal leaves rehab facility with Tory to record a song

When Cookie and Lucious come to visit Jamal he tells them that he’s ready to come home.  Cookie panics and advises Jamal to stay at the rehab facility.  Jamal doesn’t believe in authority.  Him and his new friend Tory, leave the facility to go to the studio and record a simple song:
According to TV
Line
, although they were supposed to make up in the scene by having full on
intercourse, TV Line talked to the director of the show and he said that
originally, they were supposed to have sex on
the scene to make up for the fight they just had but right before, and I mean
right before, they started the scene, the actors went to director, Craig Brewer
and said they had second thoughts about the sex scene. They said they shouldn’t
do it. That is why it didn’t happen. Brewer said this is what he loves about
working with these two on the show because they really live their characters.

According to Brewer, he
listens to the actors because they really know
their characters and really knows what should be done with the scenes.
