Jennifer Hudson’s New Album is Called ‘JHUD’

By Kevin Rutherford

Shortly after releasing a new song with R. Kelly from her upcoming album, Jennifer Hudson has revealed the title of said album, and it’s fairly simple to remember.

In an interview with WPGC (a station) in Washington, D.C., Hudson determined that her new album, out this August, is titled JHUD.

In the interview, Hudson naming the album after herself isn’t just a lazy flick of the wrist to get a record with a title out there — JHUD is very much a personal experience.

“It’s different expressions of me as an artist, a girl, a music lover,” Hudson told WPGC.

Hudson’s already released two songs from the record — the first being “Walk It Out,” her Timbaland collaboration, back in April.

Then, earlier this week, she revealed “It’s Your World,” her R. Kelly duet, after premiering the song at the BET Awards.

JHUD still doesn’t have an official release date but is expected for mid-August.
