On Monday, March 16, Hennessy V.S presented the album release party for the EMPIRE soundtrack at Stage 48 in New York City. Upon arrival, cast members Jussie Smollett and Bryshere “Yazz” Gray met with 100 lucky fans before jumping on stage to perform.
Smollett jumped on stage first and was followed by Bryshere Gray, who said, “We know what you want to listen to,” and immediately they went into the fan favorite “Drip Drop.” The guys continued to perform select tracks on the album. Next thing you know, Smollett stopped the music and said, “I want to dedicate all of this to my baby momma.” Raven Symoné walked onto the stage and turned up.
Other notables in attendance seen enjoying Hennessy V.S cocktails were actor Derek Luke, rapper Uncle Murda, Ed Lover and Jasmine Sanders.
