Jennifer Hudson returns with new single ‘Remember Me.’
The rousing track is the first taste of the Grammy and Oscar winner’s fourth studio album, which is expected to hit stores later this year via Epic Records. It’ll mark Hudson’s first release for the L.A Reid helmed label.
Having flirted with dancier sounds on 2014’s ‘JHUD,’ ‘Remember Me’ finds the vocal wonder on more familiar terrain – one which lets her voice take center stage.
Take a listen below…
Sonically, this is the lane Hudson seems most suited. The production draws on her churchy-lean, while still having the same contemporary flair that made ‘Spotlight’ such a “moment” for her.
Lyrically the track is compelling and proves quality content can still be paired with a commercial coating.
Where this fits in the radio landscape will be interesting to see, but it’s definitely a stride in the right direction.
Tidbit: Did anyone else get an “Emeli Sande” feel from this? We did and think it’s the smartest lane for J.Hud. A/C skewed with potential for mass appeal.
