To get us pumped for the upcoming second season of Empire, Fox and Columbia Records have released two new songs, both sung by Jussie Smollett, who plays Jamal Lyon.

“No Doubt About It” is an energetic number that features Pitbull, who co-wrote the track with Ne-Yo. Another tune, “Ain’t About the Money,” teams Smollett up with his television brother, Bryshere “Yazz the Greatest” Gray. Both songs will appear on Empire: Original Soundtrack from Season 2 Volume 1, which is dropping later this year, reports Billboard.

And if you haven’t set a calendar alert for it yet, the new season of Empire premieres September 23 on Fox.
