Having entered into a deal with Midtown Sound, the girls and Carlotta must contend with R&B crooner Noah Brooks and other artists to fight for the attention of the new label president, Ayanna Floyd, a powerful Machiavellian corporate operator with her own agenda for the girls’ future. Meanwhile, after a harrowing stint in prison, Cotton must find a way to re-enter society as a convicted felon. And, with Derek facing the possibility of never walking again, Alexandra must work to keep their romance alive, while balancing her own career goals. Finally, the fate of Jahil remains decidedly unclear, following last season’s shocking and explosive finale.
