ABC/Lorenzo BevilaquaJussie Smollett is hitting the road in support of his debut album, Sum of My Music.
The singer and Empire star’s Sum of My Music tour will kick off in the United Arab Emirates city of Dubai on April 20.
Jussie will also make stops in several cities in Europe and the U.S. before wrapping things up in New Orleans at the Essence Festival on July 7.
Sum of My Music was released in March. Jussie says in a statement that with his debut album, he “released just a piece of who I am.”
“Now that people have heard it, felt it and had a chance to vibe with it, I want to bring the love directly to the people. I can’t wait to perform for you,” he adds.
“Music has always been my heart. Something I can always and will always create.”
Tuesday, Jussie unveiled the music video for his third single “Hurt People.”
The visual, shot in South Africa, was inspired by late political leader Nelson Mandela and shows Jussie and an all-black South African labor force leading a revolution, all in the name of love.
