The official word: Arista recording artist JENNIFER HUDSON’s sophomore album, I
Remember Me, debuted last month at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 and R&B Albums charts. Led by the album’s first single, “Where You At,” I Remember Me sold over 165,000 units its first week and marks the Grammy and Academy Award winner’s second chart-topping album entry. Hudson’s eponymous debut album entered at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 and R&B Albums charts in 2008 and won a Grammy in 2009 for Best R&B Album.
This chart debut coincides with high ratings and rave reviews journalists bestowed upon I Remember Me, including People magazine’s 3½ stars out of 4, & the New York Daily News 4 stars out of 5. USA Today’s 3½ stars out of 4 review states “I Remember Me celebrates her heartwarming progress, and makes us look forward to the rest of her journey,” while Elle magazine cites “The collection of personal and memorable songs showcases the Jennifer Hudson powerhouse that audiences adore.” RollingStone.com
proclaims “Hudson may be the most talented singer that American Idol has produced; she’s definitely the most powerful. Hudson’s a one woman-revival, with a voice so forceful it can roll back time.”
Dubbed “Ms. Iron Pipes” in Entertainment Weekly’s album review, Jennifer wowed national viewing audiences last week with her pipes during knockout performances of her hit single “Where You At” on Good Morning America, The View, 106 & Park, The Wendy Williams Show, Tonight Show with Jay Leno and her triumphant return on American Idol.
Last month, Jennifer visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show to announce her headlining “I Remember Me” tour presented by Weight Watchers. The tour kicks off in San Diego June 19th, with a stop in Cleveland on July 20th. Jennifer has once again teamed up with I Love All Access to offer fans a variety of VIP ticket packages including meet & greets, pre-show parties and more.
