Jussie Smollett Sierra McClain Sisters Empire Need Freedom Lyrics

One of our favorite parts of Empire's season 3 premiere episode was Jussie Smollett's new song, "Need Freedom."  Although he didn't perform the track at the concert, we got to see him practice it and it was amazing.  Jussie's character on the series, Jamal Lyon, was shot by Freda Gatz and he's still recovering.


When he tries to perform the song, he begins having flashbacks and is unable to handle the pressure.  Luckily, Nessa (Sierra McClain) is there to save the day.

Check out the video below which show Jussie performing the track.  We've also provided the lyrics to the song.  Enjoy!


Too many guns on the streets
In my heart, I can't take it no, oh
Like Stevie said, Love's in need
My heart cries out for Orlando
Philando, Alton, Sandra, Mike Brown
Garner, Trayvon, Why?
Too many people gone too soon

Tell me how this happened
Where did we go wrong?
Say we stay together if we choose to walk alone
Blood covers our streets
Hatred fills our home
Gotta get this message out before we're dead and gone

We gotta make it better
Something's gotta change
The world needs your voice just to make it through the rain
When I think of what's going on in this world
Ohh it gets me to see my sister not breathe
My sister, my brother here with me

Need freedom
Our world is crying, no more silence, with guns and violence
Need freedom
I can't keep dying, we're way too quiet, no more silence
Need freedom
Stop this evil, free my people, we're all equal
Need freedom
Our world get's brighter, keep on trying, keep on fighting for freedom

As I sit and think about
All that's going on
My soul just cries out
Can you tell me please?

Tell me who's to blame
For causing all this pain
The one's we call to help us turn
They kills us everyday
See war is not the answer
And love is what we need
Take the chains off, break the bondage
Set my people free

We gotta make it better
Something's gotta change
The world needs your voice just to make it through the rain
When I think of what's going on in this world
Ohh it gets me to see my sister not breathe
My sister, my brother here with me

Need freedom
Our world is crying, no more silence, with guns and violence
Need freedom
I can't keep dyin', we're way too quiet, no more silence
Need freedom
Stop this evil, free my people, we're all equal
Need freedom
Our world get's brighter, keep on trying, keep on fighting for freedom

Need freedom
The world is crying, no more silence, with guns and violence
Need freedom
I can't keep dying, we're way too quiet, no more silence
Need freedom
Stop this evil, free my people, we're all equal
Need freedom
Our world get's brighter, keep on trying, keep on fighting for freedom
