Jennifer Hudson gave “The Tom Joyner Morning Show” listeners an advance listen to her sophomore album I Remember Me, arriving March 22. During her visit, the Grammy winner provided the back stories on several tracks including the upbeat “Angel” penned by Alicia Keys, the inspiring title track co-written with Ryan Tedder, Ne-Yo-penned “Why Is It So Hard,” Stargate produced “I Got This” dedicated to her hometown of south side Chicago, and the Mary J. Blige inspired “No One Gonna Love You,” a favorite of her son’s.
But of all the tunes she previewed, she was most excited about recording the snapping, feel-good number “Everybody Needs Love” and disco-tinged “Don’t Look Down” with labelmate Alicia Keys. J-Hud couldn’t believe she was working with one of her idols. Check it out!
