Jennifer Hudson Releases New Single Featuring Timbaland — Listen Here!

Jennifer Hudson fans, rejoice: The former American Idol contestant has officially dropped her new single, “Walk it Out,” featuring Timbaland, from her currently untitled third studio album.

Jennifer originally teased the single on Instagram, where she played the song in the background of a video, and now, you can stream it for free to hear the entire song in all its glory. Need it on your iPod ASAP? The song will be available for digital download on April 29.

“‘Walk it Out’ reflects the JHud in me,” Jennifer said in a press release, according to Billboard. “Every bit of it is a reminder and a connection of where I come from.”

And although she did have a little help from master hitmaker Timbaland, Jennifer assures us she’s had a hand in the entire process.

“Who better to help me reconnect to [where I come from] than Timbaland and his team?” Jennifer continued. “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.”

There’s no release date for her new album as of yet, but the new single should hopefully hold us over 'til then. And as an added bonus, Jennifer’s performing “Walk it Out” for the first time at the Staples Center as part of the BET Experience concert series.
