Jennifer Hudson is back on the music side of things with new single “Remember Me“!
The track – co-written by Jamie Hartman – is the lead single off of the 35-year-old entertainer’s fourth studio album, which is expected to hit stores later this year via Epic Records and will serve as her debut record for the L.A Reid helmed label.
Having indulged (mostly) in some euphoria on the dance floor with 2014’s underrated JHUD, “Remember Me” finds Jennifer returning back to more familiar grounds – one which lets her voice take the “Spotlight.” The puns write themselves!
“So do you remember me/ In those moments just before you fall asleep/ I know you/ Remember me/ Promise me that it doesn’t make your heart beat,” she belts on the choir-assisted hook. In usual JHUD fashion, it’s a melodic midtempo vocal-showcasing ballad that’s chock full of heavy emotions.
And, also in usual Jennifer Hudson fashion, it’s a lead single that probably shouldn’t be a lead single, and will likely be forgotten after a few weeks before she gives us something to talk about on the next go round. Don’t get me wrong, I love me a JHUD ballad, but something about this just feels dated.
“As an artist, when I discover music that I connect with deeply, it brings me a sense of excitement that I can’t put into words,” Jennifer said in a statement. “That’s how I feel about “Remember Me”. Everything about it is special – from co-writing it with Jamie, to the recording process, to how it made me feel along the way. I just can’t wait to share it with the world.”
