Wanna Be Your Lover September 30, 2008 R&B Releases Wrapping up a full month, Robin Thicke and Jennifer Hudson are slated to release their highly anticipated albums “Something Else” and “Jennifer Hudson” on the 30th . Thicke, who earned major respect with the album “The Evolution of Robin Thicke” seems to be on track to double up with his latest single “Magic” while Hudson who already has an Oscar for her role as “Effie White” in Dreamgirls has to prove that she can be a successful recording artist beyond the shadow of “Effie & ‘And I Am Telling You”….. can she do it ? Something Else Artist: Robin Thicke * Tracklisting unavailable at this time. Led by the hit single “Magic,” Thicke describes the new album as a cross between “classic Philly Motown and ‘70s black disco meeting the creativity of the Beatles and Bob Dylan.” “I felt like a lot of stuff out there sounded the same. Plus, there are a lot of things going on in the world with the recession and the war. It made me feel like everybody really just needed something new, something else,” says the Platinum-selling singer/songwriter “It’s time for a change and there is hope for everyone.” Jennifer Hudson Artist: Jennifer Hudson * Tracklisting unavailable at this time. “Jennifer Hudson” – the album, features “Jesus Promised Me a Home Over There” — a gospel tribute to the singer’s days in the church choir — and “You Pull Me Through,” a track that Diane Warren penned for Hudson’s lung-busting balladeer side. The album will also include the classic “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” from “Dreamgirls” and “All Dressed in Love” from the recent “Sex and the City” soundtrack. Besides Warren, the collaborators on the album include Ludacris, Robin Thicke, Rock City, Timbaland, Tank and the Underdogs. The first single, “Spotlight,” was written by R&B star Ne-Yo.
