Jennifer Hudson's "Remember Me" video doesn't really suit the (great) song.

Jennifer Hudson released the best single of her career earlier this year and she’s hoping people will realize it with a series of live performances. The 35-year-old belted out “Remember Me” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today (April 26) and, as usual, put on a vocal master class. The big-lunged diva even switched up the pace towards the end with a nice back-and-forth with her backing singers. However, the best moment comes when she pulls the trigger and starts hitting notes that give the other girls anxiety.

Co-written by Jamie Hartman (Rag’N’Bone Man’s “Human”), the lead single from Jennifer’s fourth LP is soaring mid-tempo ballad with gut-wrenching lyrics. “So do you remember me in those moments just before you sleep?” she pleads on the gospel-tinged chorus. “I know you remember me, swear to me the memory isn’t sweet.” It’s a song that the Grammy/Oscar winner is clearly passionate about. “As an artist, when I discover music that I connect with deeply, it brings me a sense of excitement that I can’t put into words,” J Hud explains. Watch up top.
