Jennifer Hudson - No One Gonna Love You [Music Video Premiere]
Personally, I did not and still do not enjoy Jennifer Hudson's sophomore record I Remember Me for it leaves me cold in the same way Leona Lewis' second album Echo did. But, unlike Leona, Hudson's doing all the right things this era. Well, minus the album that is. After first single Where You At peaked at a dismal #64 on the Hot 100, hardly the crossover success her debut single Spotlight was, Hudson has decided to charge forward with the second US release No One Gonna Love You.
The music video just premiered and while listening to the album, it never really struck out as an album stunner, I think it's pretty decent and mildly catchy and could do just alright, the same way Where You At did. But this video changes this view entirely. In the clip, Jennifer channels a very Alicia Keys vibe that I love, and I think this is the most unique clip she's ever done. Sure, there's the product placement for BMW's 5 Series GT but it doesn't get to the point where it gets annoying.
There's nothing on the album that will get her a big hit this era, but she could very well straddle along nicely, being the dark horse and going platinum with the album, something most pop divas reigning the Hot 100 are struggling to achieve.
We review the latest in 21st century. Mostly we do pop, but it doesn't really matter, along with new music premieres, video premieres, album premieres. If the links don't work, please notify me in the cbox right below and I will post a new link in the cbox. Thanks.
Artist Of The Month. (November 2011)
The Power Rangers of British pop, The Saturdays, are returning this year with a more mature sound and image, with the girlband taking a stab at the pop/dance wave with their fourth album On Your Radar's first single Notorious being a total flip in direction in their sound, and was noticeably more clubby compared to their previous singles and albums. They then took things a level further with the complete rave-tastic All Fired Up, which is without a doubt their best single release, not surprising since the track was produced by production powerhouse Xenomania, the machine behind pretty much all of Girls Aloud's discography. The pop five-piece are charging forward with the Christmassy ballad My Heart Takes Over before their album On Your Radar drops November 21st!
