Reid announced, “Jennifer Hudson is the defining voice of this generation,” he continued, “Her award-winning presence on records, in the film, and on stage establishes her as one of the premiere 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… all will be revealed soon!”
Reid is co-executive producing the album with Sony Music Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer, Clive Davis. It has been 25 years since the two have worked on a project together. The last time they collaborated was on Whitney Houston’s 1992 soundtrack The Bodyguard.
Davis said, “I signed Jennifer in 2007 believing her to be the strongest candidate as the next generation’s Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston,” he continued, “She has become that, as LA and I excitingly reunite to capture Jennifer at her all time best.”
Hudson is excited for the next chapter in her musical journey.
“I couldn’t be more excited to embark on this new chapter with two of the most prolific musical legends of this generation,” she said. “There is no doubt that this is just the beginning of a very special collaboration and I know that the result will be something unforgettable. I am looking forward to the creative process and sharing new music very soon!”
Congratulations to Jennifer on signing with Epic Records. Hopefully, we will hear new music soon!
