Album: Jennifer Hudson, I Remember Me (Arista)

Click to follow

If the tragic events of Hudson's life don't need spelling out, then neither do the reasons why she's called her comeback album "I Remember Me".

The opening lines are "I've been through some things / Please don't hold that against me", and the themes are succeeding through adversity. Sadly, the Showgirls star is no Alicia Keys (who contributes three songs), and while she unquestionably has a voice, the material's nothing you'll want to remember.
