Jussie Smollett has released an epic new music video full of queer love.

Freedom shows two women in a happy relationship ‘doing the everyday things that every single couple does.’

Smollett explained the video is about love.

He continued: ‘I see nothing but beauty through the eyes of these characters we’ve created. I hope everyone else does as well. Love is freedom. Freedom is love.’

Actresses Cynthia Erivo and Tika Sumpter play the queer couple.

Erivo has previously starred in ITV series Mr Selfridge. Sumpter appeared in Gossip Girl.

The track itself showcases Smollett’s powerful vocals.

The actor came out as gay on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2015.

However, he later said: ‘If I fall in love down the road with a woman, I’m going to love that woman.’

Jussie Smollett has starred in Fox series Empire since 2015 as Jamal Lyon.

His debut album, Sum of My Music, will hit stores on 2 March.
