Jennifer Love Hewitt in 'I'm a Woman' video before 'Client List' return
Jennifer Love Hewitt returns to her pop music roots and stars in the new sexy music video "I'm a Woman" to promote the upcoming second season of her Lifetime series "The Client List."
The song is the 33-year-old actress' first in more than eight years and is featured on "The Client List." The single will be made available for purchasing and downloading on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and iHeartRadio starting on February 8, A&Amp;E Networks, which owns Lifetime Television, said in a statement to OTRC.com on Tuesday.
The sexually-charged "I'm a Woman" music video shows Hewitt dressed in various lingerie pieces while dancing by herself and with a group of men. The clip was produced by Randy Jackson and directed by Matthew Rolston, who has helmed videos such as Michael Jackson's "Bad," En Vogue's "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)," Destiny's Child's "Bootylicious" and Seal's "Kiss From a Rose."
The actress rose to fame as a pop singer when she was a teenager. She recorded four studio albums. The most recent "BareNaked" album and its title single, released in 2002, were Hewitt's most successful. She co-wrote the record's songs with singer Meredith Brooks, who is known for the 1997 single "Bitch."
Hewitt last released music in 2004 -- she contributed a song to the soundtrack of the 2004 TV musical film "A Christmas Carol."
Hewitt became famous worldwide for her role as Sarah on the family drama series "Party of Five" in the 1990s and went on to star in films such as "I Know What You Did Last Summer" and the show "Ghost Whisperer" before starring in a 2010 "Client List" Lifetime Television Movie, which had spurred the creation of the series. Her character is based on a real person.
On the show, Hewitt plays an impoverished mother who helps run a massage parlor that dishes out more than just back rubs. She is also a director and executive producer of the series, which returns for season 2 on March 10. In the TV movie, she played one of the parlor's sex workers, who does not have a managerial role.
The show also stars Cybill Shepherd, Colin Egglesfield and Loretta Devine. Its debut season was watched by an average of around 2.7 million viewers weekly, making it the most-watched series on Lifetime since "Drop Dead Diva," which was canceled earlier this month after four seasons.
"The Client List" was renewed for a second season in May 2012.
