Jennifer Hudson is preparing for the release of her third studio album, JHUD. Among other collaborations, she joined forces with hot-right-now Iggy Azalea as well, on the track "He Ain't Goin' Nowhere". As the promotion of the record unfolds and we're only one week away from its release, the songstress premiered the track on her Soundcloud.
The Pharrell Williams-produced cut is an upbeat dance tune, with dark disco vibes throughout. Its slick and elegant production could be coming straight from the 70's, but at the same time it's something fresh. Hudson sounds all sexy and seductive on it, while Iggy comes in for a sassy, fast-paced verse. Jennifer commented on it by saying:
"I hope it’s a song people can listen to and let the music do what it’s meant: let go of the shit that holds you back and just take a minute to dance and feel good. It’s that perfect mix of glamorous, late-night style, dance music from the past that has always really hit me deep."
The song was most probably put out in order to hype up the the album. Even though the new disco-dance direction followed by Hudson has been praised, the released tunes have failed to make any significant impact so far. The rapstress' addition does after all give the song great potential to become a hit, thanks to her current success.
Jennifer Hudson is dropping JHUD on September 23, via RCA Records. For the time being, take a listen to "He Ain't Goin' Nowhere".
