“The name of the album is 'I Remember Me', I came up with the title as I always say that in 29 years I feel like I have lived four different lives. I almost can't even recognise that person from ten years ago. I'm looking at me now and I'm like, 'Who am I?', not just physically, but even when I look around at my environment, this wasn't here ten years ago and I wasn't who I am today," Contactmusic quoted the singer as saying.
“The way to identify myself is from my hands and from a familiar face. Those are the things that make me say, 'Oh, I remember this, I remember that, I remember me and who I used to be.' That's where the name of the album came from," she added.
Jennifer, who collaborated with singer Alicia Keys, Ne-Yo and R. Kelly for the new album, said that it was a good experience working with them. She said, “It didn't take as long of a process to record this album as it did the first one. It's also a completely different experience. I feel like it's at the next level and I'm in a different place. I feel like album reflects that and there's a real energy from all the people I worked with."
Jennifer's single 'I Remember Me' has been released but her album will hit the stores only on April 25.
Jennifer Hudson did not name her latest album 'I Remember Me' for no reason. She named it so because she feels that she has lived 'four different lives' so far. The album reflects the changes which have taken place in her life including turning a mother of a son. Lots of events have taken place in her life like her shot to fame after competing on the American Idol in 2004 and the murder of her mother Darnell Donnerson, brother Jason Hudson and nephew Julian in 2008.
