Jennifer Hudson gets groovy on her new single with Iggy Azalea.
Hudson’s new song, “He Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere,” produced by Pharrell Williams, is a 70’s disco inspired mid-tempo jam that’s completely fresh in today’s pop music culture. And to make things better… Iggy Azalea’s rap is actually listenable!
“I hope it’s a song people can listen to and let the music do what it’s meant: let go of the **** that holds you back and just take a minute to dance and feel good,” Hudson told BuzzFeed.
“[Pharrell and I] were able to use music and soul to actively reminisce on those fantasy nights of the ’60s and ’70s,” Hudson said. “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 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.”
“Whisper in his ear it makes it hotter / Don’t wipe the sweat it makes it better.”
