Epic Records announced on Tuesday (June 28th) that Jennifer Hudson has inked a deal with the label. According to Rap-Up.com,
L.A. Reid and Clive Davis will also executive produce her upcoming album, marking Reid and Davis’ first collab since Whitney Houston’s The Bodyguard soundtrack. Reid said in a statement, “Jennifer Hudson is the defining voice of this generation. Her award-winning presence on records, in 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!”
Looks like they’re setting her up to be the next Aretha and Whitney. Good for her.
