London: American singer Jennifer Hudson wants to collaborate with soul singer Mary J Blige on a track together.

`Spotlight` singer Hudson and Blige appeared to record the VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul TV special. Hudson said that she would love to do a track with her peer because she looks to her huge legacy as a soul singer, reported Daily Mail.
