The highly anticipated Jennifer Hudson debut album is almost upon us...

If you're to believe all you hear you would by now no doubt know that she completed an album a while ago only to have Clive Davis trash it and send the Dreamgirls show stopper back to the studio with a bevy of contemporary names.

The offshoot single is a pleasant upbeat slab of contemporary soul with an old school feel . Messers Stargate and Ne-Yo are behind the whole thing and as you can imagine it's a solid if not spectacular opening salvo from what promises to be a good album with writing and production from the likes of Timbaland, Robin Thicke, the Underdogs, Dianne Warren and more.
