Jennifer Hudson Debuts New Song ‘He Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere’ With Iggy Azalea
Jennifer Hudson has released the first single off her forthcoming album, 'JHUD,' due out Sept. 23. The song, titled 'He Ain't Goin' Nowhere,' features a collaboration with Iggy Azalea and was produced by Pharrell.
The song made its debut today on Buzzfeed News, and is a throwback to '60s funk and '70s disco. In an interview with the site, Hudson says, “[Pharrell and I] were able to use music and soul to actively reminisce on those fantasy nights of the '60s and '70s. We really worked to keep the sound relatable, but the way the bass hits your chest and the guitar licks sort of tingle your ear really work well to transport you to a time in music history I just live for. It’s the sort of track you can’t listen to without moving and the fact that we were able to have Iggy join in on it was just what it needed. To be honest, I consider it one of the centerpieces of my album because it captures all the things that inspire me so well.”
“It’s that perfect mix of glamorous, late-night style dance music from the past that has always really hit me deep," she adds.
