Not only is the demo rating the highest its been for a network drama series in five years — since an episode of Grey’s Anatomy in 2010 — but the Fox program will also be partnering with Columbia Records to extend its reach beyond just television when the Empire soundtrack hits stores next month.

The compilation will include contributions from cast members as well as Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, Juicy J, Charles Hamilton, Rita Ora, Estelle and Courtney Love.
