It’s about time! Jennifer Hudson has finally set a release date for her upcoming third studio album entitled, JHUD! The follow-up to 2011’s I Remember Me will arrive on September 23 via RCA Records. On the artwork, the 32-year-old R&B diva strikes a fierce pose in front of the Chicago skyline. “It’s different expressions of me as an artist, a girl, a music lover,” Jennifer told WPGC. “Earlier in my career I was just a soloist singing other people’s songs. Now I really want to be an artist. I want to lift the people up, have fun, create a moment. I have my own visions that I want to bring to life.” The album is set to include her Pharrell-produced single “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel)” featuring T.I., the Timbaland-produced “Walk It Out,” the R. Kelly duet “It’s Your World,” and much more. I can’t wait – stream the album sampler below!
