NEW YORK, May 9 (UPI) -- U.S. singer and actress Jennifer Hudson, who won an Oscar for her work in "Dreamgirls," said she is working on her first solo album.

"Everyone says, 'When is your next album coming out?'" Hudson told reporters in New York recently. "And I'm like, 'No, this is my first one.' Other than the 'Dreamgirls' soundtrack, that is, but that's (my character) Effie on it. Right now, it's a huge variety of everything, but the first single is 'Spotlight,' (due out this month) and it has a great pop feel, and it's still clubbish ... and it's very different. Everybody is so used to or adjusted to the sound of Effie coming from me, but it's going to be very different. I think people will be surprised."

Hudson, who will soon be seen in the film "Sex and the City," said she worked with producers like Pharrell, Timberland, T-Pain, Diane Warren, Stargate and Ne-Yo for her debut CD.

Asked if there are any guest appearances, Hudson replied: "It's mainly just me. It's a solo album. I did do a duet with T-Pain, and that's probably the only one. But I would still love to do something with others, but hopefully there's always room for other albums."
