Grammy and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson dropped a new single today called “Walk It Out” featuring Timbaland. The Timbaland and J-Roc-produced track is available for stream now, and will be up for sale digitally April 29th. It is the second release off Hudson’s forthcoming third studio album, due out this summer on RCA Records.
In September last year, she released “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel)”, featuring T.I. with production by Pharrell. No exact release date has yet been set, nor has a name for the album been announced.
“‘Walk It Out’ reflects the ‘JHud’ in me. Every bit of it is a reminder and a connection of where I come from,” Hudson said in a press release statement. “Who better to help me reconnect to that than Timbaland and his team? We co-wrote the song together so I’m singing my words. It’s my take; my perspective. It’s my music and I can’t wait to share that with my fans.”
Hudson will perform “Walk It Out” and other songs at the Staples Center in at Los Angeles as part of the BET Experience concert series, along with Mary J. Blige and Trey Songz.
