Set to unleash her third studio album on September 23, American Idol alum Jennifer Hudson transforms into JHUD on her latest singles "I Can't Describe (The Way I Feel)" and "Walk It Out." On the set of Trending 10 today, the R&B diva introduced herself by simply stating: "I'm the boss of everything."
She discussed the inspiration behind the album's edgier, more upbeat vibe with the same enthusiasm. "I want it to reflect my person–not just as a vocalist, but as a music-lover."
The GRAMMY-winner also admitted that her collaboration with fellow Chi-Town native R. Kelly, "It's Your World," is as much of a "vocal marathon" as her July 9 tweet stated. "Trying to duplicate R. Kelly's vocals–cause when he demos something, you don't wanna change a thing–I wanted every nook and cranny. The biggest challenge was to sing it an octave up from what he did."
