For the first single off her upcoming album, Jennifer Hudson butchers the English language.

But does "Where You At" make up for the grammatical mistake in its title by satisfying one's craving for a beautiful ballad? Listen now and decide for yourself:

“This song to me is like what I always wanted to do vocally. As an aspiring writer, just the subject of it means so much to me. It’s simple and it’s something we say every day,” Hudson says.

Written by R. Kelly and produced by Harvey Mason Jr., the tune will be included on "I Remember Me," which hits stores on March 22. What do you think of it?

It doesn't get much more tragic than the news Jennifer Hudson received in October 2008: her mother, brother and nephew were all found dead.

The murderer was eventually apprehended and Jennifer has gone on with life as best she can ever since, giving birth to a son and singing the national anthem at Super Bowl XLIII.

Last night, meanwhile, in a VH1 special titled Behind the Music: Jennifer Hudson, the singer opened up about the tragedy for the first time. She referred to it all as a "blur" and added:

"It was surreal. It was like I was outside of myself."

As a sad reminder: on October 24, 2008, Jennifer's mom and sibling were shot to death inside their Chicago residence; the body of her seven-year old nephew was found later in an abandoned SUV.

Twice the Talent

For two weeks after the incident, Hudson says "I was pretty much secluded from everything that was going on.

"I didn't watch any TV, I didn't even want to know what was going on because I had more than enough to deal with... I prayed when I got up in the morning and prayed before I laid down at night. If I didn't, I'd wake up depressed."

Referring to her son, Hudson concluded with: "[David] makes me feel like the most special person on earth. I want him to get the same love and the same upbringing my mother gave us."

Watch the full interview below and send out your thoughts to Jennifer now.

Another round of congratulations is due for Jennifer Hudson and fiance David Otunga.

Crude jokes aside, friends say this pregnancy wasn't planned.

“Jennifer was in total shock when she found out she was having another baby,” said a source. “She had wanted some space between the kids’ ages.”
