Jennifer Hudson is reeling in the big names for her third album, including incomparable talents R. Kelly, Pharrell and Timbaland.
She said in a recent interview with the Huffington Post that she has some records in the stash with her fellow Chicago native and that heavyweight producers Pharrell and Timbaland also sprinkled their magic in the studio for her forthcoming project.
“I’m not going to say I discovered anything, but I’m introducing a new side of me,” the singer/actress said.
The Black Nativitystar also revealed the name of her new alter-ego Jones, who fans will be hearing a lot from in her upcoming releases. “It’s so different, it’s really cool, and the music is, too. I love the energy," she said.
The Oscar winner said her album will drop in spring 2014.
