‘Empire’ Guest Star Alicia Keys Speaks Her Truth in New Teaser (Video)

Singer will appear in new episode of Fox’s hip-hop drama airing Tuesday

Alicia Keys brings her stunning vocal skills to this week’s episode of “Empire.”

In a behind the scenes look at the episode, Keys discusses her character, Skye Summers, and how the character fears trying something new musically at the risk of alienating her fans.

“My favorite scene that I’ve shot so far is the scene with myself and Jamal in the studio,” Keys says in the video. “And they have this whole exchange about what it would mean to be brave enough to be your whole self, to speak your full truth.”

Lucious (Terrence Howard) doesn’t help matters when he tells Skye that she needs to “stay in her lane” with her music or risk losing it all. But by the end, and with Jamal’s help, Skye is ready to try something new.

“Empire” airs on Fox Wednesday nights at 9 p.m./8c.
