Jennifer Hudson Set To Return With New Album ‘I Remember Me’

Jennifer Hudson, last seen making Oprah shed tears at the Kennedy Center Honors, will release her sophomore album in two months, says her website. I Remember Me will be out March 22, and features work by such writers and producers as Ryan Tedder, Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Rich Harrison, Ne-Yo and Stargate. Also on board is R. Kelly, who co-wrote the LP’s first single “Where You At.”

“I’m excited about this album because it’s almost like a renewal for me, reflected through the chapters of my life,” Oscar and Grammy winner Jennifer says on her site. “I’ve called it I Remember Me because of the journey I’ve been on. I’ve learned that life constantly surprises you, no matter your plans. My fans have been so loyal, I feel like they have been on this journey with me and I can’t wait for them to hear the new album.”

A short clip of “Where You At” is streaming here, and those who pre-order the I Remember Me album get a free download of the single on January 24.

“You said you’d be that shoulder for my eyes to cry on, so you would be the one that I depend on,” J-Hud sings on the ballad, which prominently features a piano, thick beats and melodic backing vocals.
