Look at Jennifer Hudson go! She may not have won the American Idol title all those years ago (ten, if you want to feel old) but girlfriend’s never let the near-win get her down. She’s gone on to do plenty of amazing things: climb the music charts, win an Oscar, become a mom. Now her reign of fierceness continues with new single “Walk It Out.”

Catch J.Hud strutting her stuff in the music video below. Featuring Timbaland, the jam is as high energy and sassy as we’d hoped. Jennifer’s been teasing this one for awhile and even let cameras on set to give a sneak peek back when the video was shooting.

Channeling '90s chic for her walk, Jennifer says the major bling and high-heeled sneakers (a real thing that we want a pair of) was a throwback to her high school days. “I’m a real girl,” she said during the shoot. “I want them to see that.”

Don’t worry, we do. Well, when we’re not blinded by those hunky dudes you cast to walk it out with you, Jen. Honestly, where’d you find them?

Now all we need is for Jennifer’s full studio album. The third in her roster, she’s yet to release a title or a date but if it’s anything like “Walk It Out,” we can’t wait.
