Hudson, whose new album has been postponed to 2011 for release, was reportedly in New York City last week, during which time she met with Keys and her new husband, singer/producer Swizz Beatz. The collaboration, and the nature of the possible collaboration, has not yet been confirmed.
Hudson attributed the delay on her album’s release date to her participation in the film Winnie, which recently wrapped its filming in South Africa.
In an interview with Billboard, Hudson noted of her upcoming album, which features production by Rich Harrison on two tracks: “I definitely want it to be more personal than the first album, and just more me — whatever that is, I don’t know yet but I’m going to find out. More flexible, more diverse.”
