Jennifer Hudson Has a Release Date

For those of you who have been curious as to when Jennifer Hudson would ever release a solo project, here is a tad bit of info on it:

Jennifer Hudson has recruited India.Arie and Alicia Keys as mentors as she plans to embark on a pop career. The Oscar winner and former American Idol favorite hopes to release her first album after her new film Sex & The City hits cinemas next month (Jun08) and she has turned to two peers for advice. “I didn’t realize the process would be so long. I’m discovering it as I go along. “Alicia Keys was one of the people who talked to me about it. I wanted to make sure it was OK because it’s taking so long. “She told me it took her at least a year to record her album and that’s the process, so don’t worry about it.” And she turned to Arie when she needed a big hit on the album: “Greatest Creation, which Indie.Arie wrote, is where I see myself and where I’d like to see myself, in saying that my greatest creation is me.” Hudson will release the album in September (08), admitting “I haven’t named it yet.”

This chick has already accomplished so much that we tend to forget that she never dropped an album. We’re interested in what she comes up with for this one…here’s a single that leaked yesterday:

Any thoughts?

    I agree. I didn’t realize in hindsight that she didn’t release an album yet. Well good for her. I would like to get a copy. That girl is a star regardless. Is she really in the Sex & the city movie?

  • Valenne

    @ I’m Just Me

    Yes she is, she plays Carrie’s assistant..

    it’s amazing she did not win American Idol, but i believe she will be the only one to EVER receive an Oscar!

  • The Real Lauren, the only Lauren, I know u wanna be me, its cute.

    Yea I’m not sure if I’ll be grabbing this one, this girl has a helluva voice but idk if she’ll go over mainstream radio as well as she did with the whole dream girls thing….i just don’t see it, especially when she did that weak track with Neyo????

  • Southern Belle 225

    @lauren..i agree girl. I think she is a powerhouse singer but i can’t see it appealing to mainstream. But we’ll see. I want her to do good so I’m rooting for her. But they are right, I did forget about that album. I love her regardless!

    @ Southern Belle, she is awesome she’s also an awesome actress which is why she deserved to win that Oscar. I also hope she does well…

  • Nisha

    Is it just me? Or does she always look like she just “fell” out of bed and started her day? lol

    I love her and her voice but geeze.

  • Nisha


    ok…well maybe she DID “fall” out bed (and completely miss the shower). LMFAO

    Homegirl trippin…

  • Nisha

    *out of bed


    Enormous talent aside…she could stand to get that body in shape.SHE’S FAT.

  • Just Sit and Be Pretty

    It’ll be interesting to see what she comes out with.

  • WordzOfaProphet

    Im looking 4ward 2 dat and its bout time she found out a release date.

  • Lady Architect

    ok I just listened to the track and it is fire. No it is not a club song like many people are gonna expect and rate. It is something I would jam in my car. She sounds like a mixture of cece piniston and teena marie.

  • Bird

    That track did nothing for me. It sounds like a 70s song that wouldn’t even be a hit in the 70s.

  • Somer

    Who ever is representing JHud is doing a terriable job. The minute she was done with Dreamgirls, she should have been in the studio recording a cd. Dreamgirls took 6 months to film & another 6 months to release. That was 1yr to get this woman some decent material. While she was on the award show circuit, she could have been promoting her new CD. She is hotter than anyone at that moment. I don’t even care anymore is she never release a cd. The hype is not there anymore. It’s going to be much harder for her to push a CD now than 2yrs ago.

    Even with a new movie coming out in 1 month, still NO CD available. I know Clive Davis scratched 7 songs that was recorded cause he thought they were garbage. Is is that hard to find songwriters & producers for someone who can really sing?

  • DH

    She is blessed b/c unlike many singers, vocals will never be a problem for her. She is a future legend. I recognize this song, it’s the one from “Sex and the City”. Go Jen!!!!!!
