Taraji P. Henson has garnered new fans from all over after starring in Fox's number one drama, Empire. With the Oscar nominated actress shining bright, her good friend and 'Baby Boy' co-star Tyrese has praised her for her strength, will power and not giving into Hollywood's traps of sleeping around to get roles.

The singer/actor took to Instagram to praise Henson.

"We started our journey together - I got my ears to the streets - she's winning," he captioned a stunning photo of the actress. "She's being celebrated in a new capacity, and there's no one in the WORLD more proud..... It's good to see GOOD people who haven't slept around to get there MAKE IT in this town called Hollywood.... If you ladies need someone to look up to....... Single mother from DC college graduate paid her dues did it the RIGHT WAY."

The two's undeniable chemistry has sparked dating rumors, but both actors have explained that they just have a very healthy friendship.

Empire's premiere was seen by over 9 million people last week. This week's episode proved the show to be a sure-fire hit with 10.3 million viewers and a 4.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic. It also tied with ABC's 'How To Get Away With Murder' as the highest rated shows in the same demographic.
