It’s undeniable that Jennifer Hudson has one of the greatest voices ever to come out of the ‘American Idol’ franchise.
But throughout all her success and industry acclaim, she’s never really connected with those who decide whether she’s heard on the radio or not. Her 2008 single ‘Spotlight’ has been her biggest hit Stateside, but even it didn’t manage to scrape into the top 20.
Here albums, however, have performed well, with both ‘Jennifer Hudson’ and ‘I Remember Me’ peaking at No.2 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart; the latter even spending time within the ARIA top 30.
The march continues towards the release sometime this year of album No.3 with the reveal of the official video for the second single ‘Walk It Out’ this morning.
There’s some dancing, some time in the hairdressing salon, some flirting with a tattooed ball of muscle and a bit of night-time convertible driving, all soundtracked by the likeable enough mid-tempo soul/R&B number.
