Jennifer Hudson Is Back in Action
Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson was scheduled to shoot the video for her latest single, “If This Isn’t Love,” in October, but the tragic murders of her mother, brother and nephew put a halt to her promoting her debut album.
Six weeks later, however, the American Idol alum is getting back to work.
Extra reports that Hudson, 27, will film the clip for the song next week.
Meanwhile, Jennifer was nominated for four Grammys last week in the Best R&B Album, Best R&B Female Vocal Performance (for “Spotlight”), Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals (for “I’m His Only Woman,” featuring Fantasia) and Best R&B Song (“Spotlight”) categories.
Upon hearing the news, the actress/singer released a statement saying, “It’s been a childhood dream of mine to release an album, so to receive four Grammy nominations is truly a blessing. I am extremely honored and humbled by the nominations.”
Hudson’s self-titled album debuted on the Billboard album chart at #2 in early October. It has since been certified gold, after shipping over 500,000 copies.
