Just days after unveiling his official, long-awaited debut single ‘Freedom’ (as we reported here), ‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett has unleashed its stunning accompanying music video.
Directing the clip alongside revered choreographer/creative director Frank Gatson, Smollett tapped actresses Tika Sumpter and Cynthia Erivo as its stars to portray a loving couple who are simply enjoying every moment of life and each other.
Taking to our friends at Complex, Smollett beamed over the visual:
“This video is about love. I wanted to show two people doing the everyday things that every single couple does. 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. Enjoy!”
And “enjoy” is just what we did. We know you will too:
Beautiful performance to say the least! We expect great things from Smollett!
