Jennifer Hudson has teamed up with Iggy Azalea and Pharrell for a, “He Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere,” the latest song to be released from her upcoming JHUD, album which drops September 23rd via RCA.
For her song, JHud decided to go for a retro feel, and worked with Pharrell to do exactly that.
“[Pharrell and I] were able to use music and soul to actively reminisce on those fantasy nights of the ’60s and ’70s,” Hudson told BuzzFeed. “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.”
