Sung by Empire cast member Jussie Smollett, who plays Jamal Lyon, this song serves as both a diss track to Terrence Howard's Lucius Lyon character, and a message about doing well on your own. The song was the Empire cast's first entry on the Hot 100.
Empire's original music is executive produced by Timbaland, marking the super producer's first work on a TV series. Timbaland produced this tune with Jim Beanz whose resume features work with stars like Britney Spears, Nelly Furtado and Demi Lovato.
