In the past five years, Jennifer Hudson has won an Academy Award, fallen in love with a Harvard Law graduate, given birth to her first child, lost tons of weight and picked up a Grammy for her self-titled debut album. Um, what have you done with your life?
Keep in mind, this is a highly glamorized version of her recent past, as hese successes were likely tainted by the 2008 murder of Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew. It’s a tragedy no one should ever have to face, and we admire her strength to hop back into the “Spotlight”.
This March, the singer will be releasing her sophomore project I Remember Me, and her new single “Where You At” just premiered on the net. The R&B-tinged ballad was written and produced by R. Kelly. Although it’s relatively sparse aside from a piano line, back-up vocals and a rolling drum beat, this light instrumentation allows for Hudson’s voice to soar over the track. What do you think? Yay or nay?
