Estelle will be making her TV screen debut tonight on Fox’s soap hip-opera Empire. Youngins maybe more familiar with the West London souldstress’ voice on Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe, but this evening will play host to her very first primetime role, wherein she will debut a new version of her single “Conqueror,” with actor Jussie Smollett adding his croon and transforming the ballad into a tender duet. Estelle will be but the latest guest to bring their real world star-power to the show, following Gladys Knight, Anthony Hamilton, Courtney Love and Jim Beanz, but likely not the last, so you’ll have to stay tuned to see who else makes their way. And while I don’t personally keep up with the rap-game’s Scandal, it has been welcomed to the world by elite ratings and a massive social media following/presence, which should count for something in the long-run, right? That said, you can tune in to Fox tonight at 9pm to lay your eyes and ears on Estelle’s freshly reworked single and live action debut. If you’ve yet to cop her latest record True Romance, we implore you to hit iTunes and do so stat.
