Jennifer Hudson Stuns In ‘Angeleno’ / Dishes On New Album

 Jennifer Hudson Stuns In Angeleno / Dishes On New Album

Cop a gander of Jennifer Hudson!

The vocal powerhouse oozes silent confidence on the cover of the September issue of Angeleno – a modern luxury magazine.

Lensed by noted photographers Gomillion and Leupold, the stunning shoot sees the American Idol graduate ad Dreamgirls star strike many a diva pose.

Equally as engaging is the 31-year-old’s revelation surrounding her third studio album – details of which await after the jump…

 Jennifer Hudson Stuns In Angeleno / Dishes On New Album

Speaking in the spread’s accompanying interview, the mother of one revealed that the follow-up to 2011’s ‘I Remember Me’ is on course for an Early 2014 release.

Interestingly, the meat of the project has been cooked up in Manhattan with hitmakers Pharrell Williams and Timbaland, while Hudson describes its overall sound as “upbeat”. Of the action-packed studio sessions, the singer said:

“What we’re doing feels so right that I never want to go home (from the studio). My sister and my manager will be sleeping on the coach while we work until 4 or 5am.

This record is not about me playing a part or me as spokesperson. Should I give away the title? Let’s just say you’re gonna get Jennifer-ized.”

For those more moved by the songbird’s ballad efforts, she promises the record will boast heartfelt moments too. Of one deeply personal track ‘Moan’, she says of its inspiration “my mom always used to say that if you moan, it’ll make you feel better”.

************

 As keen appreciators of J.Hud’s talent, we’re waiting on that body of work that’ll really make a statement. Here’s hoping it’s this project.

Tidbit: If the LP is due at the top of next year, we should be hearing new material before the year’s end. Exciting times.

      Don’t get mad at Jennifer because she has the talent to measure up to the title ‘singer.’ She can “yell” at me all day, because I know it’ll be melodic and in tune.

        You really can’t talk because when beyonce sings a lot of people talk about her intense vocal strain.. go listen to “I care” and how much she’s growling… One of the names ppl who dislike her give her is ScreamOnce

    Jennifer does need to tone it down a notches. Sometimes her belts turn into yells and it takes away from the song’s melody and emotion.

    Her voice isn’t appealing…that’s why no one buys her albums.

    love how she has one eye covered, hense satanic illuminati. there is no denyig what she did for this fame. Kanye already admitted his mom was sacrificed for his fame, it’s time JHud did the same thing.

    re dog is barking at seemingly nothing, there may be
    other health related issues that need a Veterinarian. One
    day I went as usual to my friend’s place to go out and walk his Rottweiler dog.
    There are newer inventions with regard to dog training collars
    that are being introduced everyday to help to stop dog barking.
