Jennifer Hudson's new album I Remember Me is out today and the singer says much of the sound on this album was shaped by the people she worked with. The main collaborators are Alicia Keys and R. Kelly.
Keys worked on the songs "Angel," "Everybody Needs Love" and "Don't Look Down." "I must say that working with Alicia was my favorite sessions in the recording studio ever, and I think it was partly because it was a learning experience," Hudson told MTV News. "She's just amazing to work with. We had such a good time together."
Kelly wrote the song "Where You At" and helped inspire Hudson by putting up pictures of her! "It was kind of creepy to me, because when I heard the song, I was like, 'Oh my god! He's, like, giving me me! This is what I would do! This is something I would say,'" Hudson explained to MTV News. "And I hadn't even met him until after, and I'm like, 'This is bizarre.'"
