First let us gag at Jennifer Hudson’s weight loss!! Mrs. Thing (y’all know she married to from Vh1’s I Love New York) as a vocal beast… I’m ashamed that Grammy-award winning Jennifer Hudson even considered recording a ballad with this title. I saw the title and was thinking ‘AWWW SHIT! Jennifer finna take us to the club b*tch!!” But no ma’am… Then this hood way she sings the song reminds me of Keyshia Cole at the BET Awards, which is not a compliment at all. I assume because R. Kelly wrote and produced “Where You At?” they thought it would be a hit….better luck next time.
Even though this single is a flop, I admit I’m still excited for the new album “I Remember Me” due in stores March 22nd.
The album title, I Remember Me, is based on a poem written by Jennifer and composed into a beautiful song co-written by Ryan Tedder that will be featured on the album. Additional writers and producers on the album include multi-award winners Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Rich Harrison, Ne-Yo and Stargate.
“I’m excited about this album because it’s almost like a renewal for me, reflected through the chapters of my life,” comments Jennifer. “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.”
Also, don’t forget J. Hud’s new movie Winnie is coming out later this year, too!
Maybe I’m the only one who caught the shade at the end about how she has only been in ONE movie and is an Academy Award Winner Jennifer Hudson” and Terrence been acting for decades now and is only an “Academy Award Nominee.” Oh well… I’m sure this movie will bring them both equal critical acclaim.
