The R&B songstress is taking her upcoming music in a new direction.
Jennifer Hudson is gearing up to release her third album and it sounds like fans won't have to wait to long for the new music.
According to Vibe, the new album, titled JHUD, will show a different side to the R&B diva.
"It’s different expressions of me as an artist, a girl, a music lover,” she said of the follow-up to her 2011, I Remember Me. Details are still under wraps but R. Kelly is already featured one one of the album's singles "It's Your World."
In a interview with V Magazine earlier this year Hudson said she was ready to take a different approach to her music. "Earlier in my career I was just a soloist singing other people's songs," she explained. "Now I really want to be an artist. I have my own visions that I want to bring to life. I realized that people don't really know who I am. It just feels like it's time to take the training wheels off... Let them see me."
JHUD will hit stores this August.
