Multi-platinum Oscar and Grammy Award®-winning global superstar, Jennifer Hudson, will premiere “Remember Me,” her brand new single on Epic Records. On ITV’s top-rated The Voice UK, where she is currently in her first season as a coach. “Remember Me” is available now at all digital and streaming platforms worldwide. Stay tuned for news on the “Remember Me” video.
Underscoring Jennifer’s special connection to “Remember Me” is the fact that she co-wrote the track with Jamie Hartman. Co-writer of Rag’n’Bone Man’s worldwide multi-platinum #1 smash, “Human,” one of Sony Music’s biggest global hits of the past year.
“Remember Me” is the lead single from Jennifer’s upcoming Epic Records debut album (her fourth career album). Which she is completing with LA Reid, Chairman, Epic Records and executive producer Clive Davis, Chief Creative Officer, Sony Music Entertainment.
“As an artist, when I discover music that I connect with deeply, it brings me a sense of excitement that I can’t put into words,” said Ms. Hudson. “That’s how I feel about “Remember Me”. Everything about it is special – from co-writing it with Jamie, to the recording process, to how it made me feel along the way. I just can’t wait to share it with the world.”
“Jennifer Hudson is the defining voice of this generation,” said Mr. Reid when he announced her signing to Epic last year. “Her award-winning presence on records, in film, and on stage, establishes her as one of the premier artists to emerge in this century. I’m enjoying collaborating with my friend and mentor Clive Davis on Jennifer’s first Epic album and excited for her fans to hear what we’re up to.”
“I signed her in 2007,” said Mr. Davis. Believing her to be the strongest candidate as the next generation’s Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston. She has become that, as LA and I excitingly reunite to capture Jennifer at her all time best.”
Jennifer Hudson to premiere new Epic Records Single “Remember Me”
Jennifer’s “I Will Always Love You” live tribute to Whitney Houston at the 54th annual Grammy Awards® in 2012 (the day after Whitney’s death) was an iconic moment. Jennifer’s live tribute to Prince also gave the June 2016 BET Awards ceremony its climactic moment. As she sang “Purple Rain” in front of an orchestra led by Stevie Wonder on keyboards and guitarist Tori Kelly. Adding to the occasion, Ms. Hudson was wearing the same memorable white hooded tunic worn by Prince the last time he was at the awards spectacular.
