Jennifer Hudson’s Upcoming Album Drops 9/30 – Features a Duet with Fantasia


I’m pulling this item out of the headlines thread, because I love me some Fantasia Barrino AND some Jennifer Hudson, and according to Roger Friedman of Fox News, Jennifer’s new album, due to drop next Tuesday, will feature a duet between the two Divas from Season 3.   The song is called   “I’m His Only Woman”, and it sounds like a knock-down drag-out fight doesn’t it?   Jennifer and Fantasia should perform it on Idol next season.   That could give Simon Cowell an out-and-out heart attack. Heh.

Jennifer and Fantasia–a duet made of win!

Friedman previews the entire album favorably–no doubt taking his marching orders from BFF Clive Davis.   Let’s hope Jennifer doesn’t piss Clive off, or he’ll be sending his boy out back out to trash her a la Kelly Clarkson.   No love lost between he and David Cook either!   But I digress…

The album has a little Hip-hop–featuring Ludacris (a tune called “Pocketbook”–fierce!) and T-Pain, (“What’s Wrong”, listen here). Robin Thicke contributes on a track (it’s beautiful, listen to it here) and “I Am Telling You” from Dreamgirls is thrown in for good measure.

Friedman seems to think the big hit on the album is “If This Isn’t Love” (listen here).   It’s got that current sound–annoying drumbeats, space-age sound effects and Jennifer’s vocals digitized and synthesized to the nth degree–but heh, that sort of thing seems to go over well with the kids these days, so what do I know?

Jennifer Hudson drops next Tuesday, 9/30.   You can pre-order the album from Amazon HERE or click on the album cover…
