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.

    I am very excited! Her voice and vocals have truely been missed in the Industry. We all know she did not plan to stay away this long. However, life does not always go according to our plans. This young lady has been through hell and back. I love how she have re-introduced herself to the world in a whole new everything. Jennifer Hudson is such a class act. She is most authentic, and people love and respect her honest.

    Nothing about this seems like it is going to go well. The production from the 30 second clip is poor and they have waited a long time to release this album. Now, with very little fanfare they are announcing that it will be released in March? I don’t know, maybe it will be great, but based on the production team I just don’t see that happening. I feel like this light ghetto r&b is her NOT her style. It just sounds so cheap and done before.
