WATCH: Jennifer Hudson Lays Her ‘Burden Down’ in Haunting New Music Video

Written by on December 12, 2017

Jennifer Hudson is back with a new single that would make Effie White proud.

The Grammy and Oscar-winning artist released the emotional anthem “Burden Down” and its accompanying music video on Tuesday in which she can be seen singing her heart out à la her Dreamgirls days. “Burden Down” follows Hudson’s hit “Remember Me” as the second single off of her highly anticipated fourth album, due out in 2018.

For much of the Sam Lecca-directed clip, Hudson sits at a piano in an all-white ensemble in what looks like an empty warehouse. At the end, she takes it up a notch by stepping away from the piano to sing the chorus in a chilling a capella moment.
