*Jennifer Hudson has announced that her second studio album, titled “I Remember Me,” will be released on March 22.
The CD’s first single, “Where You Are,” was written and produced by R. Kelly and will arrive at radio stations on Jan. 24.
“I’m excited about this album because it’s almost like a renewal for me, reflected through the chapters of my life,” she said in a press release. “My fans have been so loyal, I feel like they have been on this journey with me and I can’t wait for them to hear the new album.”
J-Hud revealed that the album’s title was inspired by a poem she wrote, which was later turned into a song by One Republic’s Ryan Tedder and is included on the record.
“I’ve called it I Remember Me because of the journey I’ve been on,” she said.
Other writers featured on the album include Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Ne-Yo and Stargate.
Hudson’s self-titled debut has sold 826,000 copies since its release in 2008, and spawned the singles “Spotlight” and “If This Isn’t Love.”
