Hudson’s Debut Due In September

Hudson's Debut Due In September According to Billboard, Jennifer Hudson’s long-awaited debut album will be released on September 30th via Arista.
Granted it’s commendable that they didn’t rush the album out to capitalize on her Oscar success, this date really has to stick this time, so as for people not to lose interest. What’s more, the longer it’s held back, the higher the expectations – something that may count against her. Here’s hoping she delivers with this album.
In related news, industry veteran Clive Davis – the man behind Whitney Houston’s success and more recently Jennifer Hudson and Leona – has been replaced as chairman over at Sony BMG (the parent label of J Records etc). Davis has been appointed a creative role in another part of the company (click here to read the full story). I wonder what implications this may have for Jennifer’s project – considering Davis has been overseeing it since signing the ‘Dreamgirls’ star in 2006?

Any thoughts?

    It is too early in the morning for this type of bad news 🙁 Clive is a legend. It seems as if every few years they make a major change in the amount of power he has in the company. The company is probably trying to gradually force him into an early retirement. It’s great to save money & all, but the label needs to realize that sometimes you have to spend money to make money. Decisions like this drive so many artists to release projects independently.
