'Empire' Season 2 Songs Ranked By Sexiness Prove This Show Knows How To Set A Mood

Let's get the obvious out of the way. Empire has incredible music. Whether you're into rap, hip-hop, or extremely heartfelt ballads (thanks Jussie Smollett), Empire has what you want. They even have majorly sexy songs. Enough that ranking Empire Season 2 songs by sexiness proves to be extremely difficult. I mean, how can one choose between the powerful and soulful voices of V. Bozeman and Jussie Smollett? You can't. I seriously think it's impossible. In an effort to rank the sexy songs of Empire, I discovered that some songs that I originally wrote off from the show — but not really, since all of my automatic downloads of Empire songs get an even amount of love — are actually a lot sexier than I realized.

There's no doubt that the kind of heart and soul of Empire's music, Jussie Smollett, is going to be on this list multiple times. But, in addition to Jamal's ballads on Season 2, so far, there have also been songs by other artists — hey, ladies — who have proven that Jamal isn't the only Singer of Sexy on Empire

Wondering where you're favorite songs land on the official — just go with it — ranking of Empire's sexiest songs? After careful consideration (and listening to the songs, like, a million times... poor me), I present to you... 

10. "Battle Cry" By Jussie Smollett

I'm no Cookie, but the beat of this song is so sexy. OK, it doesn't hurt that Smollett is singing it. 

9. "Get No Better (2.0)" By Serayah

Serayah just knows how to turn the heat up on a song. 

8. "Never Love Again" By Jussie Smollett

This classic ballad by Jamal is all about ~love~ which totally helps it stand out as a sexy song. 

7. "Do It" By Becky G

Even though the girl group didn't work out that great for Hakeem, this song is dynamite. Girl power is pretty damn sexy. 

6. "When Love Finds U' By Jussie Smollett

This song is all about love tracking you down, even when you're hiding from it. Hunt us down, Jamal. 

5. "New New" By Becky G

Becky G is "new new" to the Empire cast, but she's not new to making incredibly hot songs. 

4. "Hourglass" By V. Bozeman

Look. If I could sing half as good as this, I'd never stop singing until I ran every last person out of my life. Sorry about it. The only reason this isn't higher is because it is more beautiful than sexy. On repeat, forever.

3. "Born To Love U" By Jussie Smollett

This song is oozing with sexiness, even with that Hulk like voice adjustment part. Can't. Stop. Sexy. Snapping.

2. "Sorry Just Don't Cut It" By Jussie Smollett

This. Song. Is. So. Sexy. But it doesn't beat the top pick...

1. "Pieces" By Jussie Smollett

This song is barely over a minute long, but the strain and the push in Smollett's voice is perfect. Let's be honest, no one would be complaining if someone like Jamal was singing this song to us. 

So there you have it. Dim the lights, light a candle, and enjoy the sexy sounds of Empire
