Hear Jennifer Hudson’s New Song “Gone, Gone, Gone”

By: Christina Lee / May 26, 2013

Jennifer Hudson has released her first new music in two years: “Gone, Gone, Gone,” a ’90s R&B throwback in which Hudson commands attention and reclaims her independence from an unappreciative beau.

“So I’m gone / like the rent you done spent up, at the strip club with your friends, buying them dollar dances,” she sings. “I’ll be gone / like the job you had last week, like the promise you don’t keep, like the dealer took your Jeep.”

Before Hudson signed on to return to American Idol as a judge, she hit the studio to begin recording her follow-up to 2011’s I Remember Me. Hudson has yet to reveal other details or even link “Gone, Gone, Gone” to her new album, but here’s to hoping she has more to share soon. For now, hear her new song after the jump.
