When Serayah McNeill, better known by her one-name moniker, is feeling inspired, she pens thoughts in her leather journal. Inside are the lyrics to her single “So Good,” which came out in June, as well as her “short and long-term goals,” the star of Fox’s Empire (season 5 premieres Sept. 26, 8 p.m.) says.

The actress, 23, lets Us take a peek.

Music to Her Ears
“I carry Beats Solo headphones in pink. My favorite Apple Music playlists right now are Slow Jamz and ’90s.”

Wit & Wisdom
“I’m reading Words that Matter by O, The Oprah Magazine. It’s different quotes from famous people. They’re all subject based, so I can open up to a section if I’m feeling some type of way.”
