Jennifer Hudson premiered her first music video for “Spotlight” (written by Ne-Yo) on Tuesday. The video was directed by Chris Robinson and is the first single off her self-titled debut album, in stores on September 30th.
I actually liked the video, and the song. She looked good. The short hair is just right for her and I have to ask, did she lose a lot of weight? Anyway she was looking GOOD!
im so happy for her!!! i will be purchasing the album on itunes!!! love you jhud!!
dont like the song! boo!
good times, good weather, good music…
Loved the Hair, the product placement was a bit too much for me. Jen, you aint got to do all that. Felt the phone scene was weak in the beginning, but she turned it out in the end.
Way to go Jen. I think that song will be a hit. I like the chorus, very catchy. Make me buy your album girl!!
That video and song was awesome. It had the right amount of soul. I know she had to tone it down for the bubblegum kids now in days, but I still loved it.
The video really complements the song and infact it made me like the song even more. Get it J. Hud.
Im Not So Invested In An Artist To The Point I Cant See Reality. The Truth Is Her Voice Is Deep In Certain Areas Which Im Sure Was Asked Of Her To Show Versatility Im Just Saying It Didnt Work For Me And Thats Fine She Has To Win Over A Fan Base Not Me. Kudos To Her Singing The Male And Female Part. Again Neyo Did His Job And J Hud Almost Did Hers But No One Not Me Not You Is Perfect. Blog Opinion! Nothing More. Nothing Less.
Love It!! Was listening to this song on the way in this morning… Ne-Yo is doing his thing producing and writing HITS!!
Reminds me of Vesta. She looks good, but the video was just ok. The story line needed to be more developed.
THE SONG IS OKAY. THE Video is not hottt!! It seems like everything she did has been done a million times before. She looked very pretty….but she wont last…..not in the music industry.
that song sucks!
Love the song! She looks great in the video.
i love this song and i agree the short hair suits her…….i can see me playin this song over and over again.
good look on having dude from TYLER PERRY’S plays in there,he is HELLA FINE…..they doing it big,first the other dude in ashanti’s video and now him!!!
NE-YO is really workin it out…he writes beautiful music
I LOVE THIS SONG!!!! She looks good in the video and yes girl you are FABULOUS!!!
Lol at the shameless promotion of Campari hehe
Shout out to the ‘Loop family
ok…it kinda grows on u…
ok there are gonna be haters but JENNIFER LOOKS F>UCKIN gorgeous in this video…her clothes were cute.make up on point…i like the concept..its hot…I loved the song already now i love it even more…
JENNIFER IS GONNA BE A FORCE to be reckoned with watch..lol…
I Love this Video and song, I am going to download on Itunes.
damn one thing i couldnt take tho was them promoting whatever that drink was..but i guess thats what the industry is doing now that record sales are so low they arent putting a lotta money into big budget videos so what do u do? get a sponsor…hence the promotion of that cocktail ive never heard of before lol
Ok…I didn’t really read everybody’s comments but I just feel liek I needed to say this about these Clive Davis women…..now….first it was Leona Lewis and I kind of brushed it off cause I smelt Whitney & Mariah on her and it was all up in that video…the treatments with the light and such but this video really did it for me…..that last scene where she was walking down the runway…even her outfit was Whitney….the short cut and just the energy I was getting from her was Ms. Houston and I don’t mind it at all to tell you the truth…..I LOVE this song…it’s s guilty pleasure of mine to listen to on the radio but I’m “excited” to see what else she brings…I just hope they don’t commercialize her too much…oh oh and one more thing….am I the only one ready for Jazmine Sullivan?
Oh and what the hell is “Mascular”? LMFAO!
NOTHING MEMRABLE ABOUT THE SONG OR VIDEO
SAME OLD DULL NEYO SONG
# 36 is not me lol
@ 60 I am ready for Jazmine too she reminds me of Lauryn Hill
LOVE THIS SONG! She looked good in the vid too
Man this song sound like some 1985 Whitney Houston ish sounds like I wanna dance with somebody is about to come on after it!
I have always loved the composition of Neyo’s music and everything he writes for other people. He reminds me of a young version of Quincy Jones and people use to complain about Quincy Jones forever writing love ballads and peaceful songs….see where it got him and the artists he wrote for?
Anyways JHud looks great and nobody can deny that. I’m glad she’s not taking her clothes all off either. To me I don’t need the video to like her because her voice is incredible. It is very controlled and sounds symphonic unlike many of the singers nowadays yelling or moaning a whole song. Go JHud you got my support!
This is going to be very interesting to see what J Records does. 2 vocal divas about to duke it out. JENNIFER HUSON v. JAZMINE SULLIVAN. Only ONE will be the champion and the numbers will determine that. Get ready to RUMBLLLLLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOVE this joint. J-Hud is doing her damn thang. she looks goooood towards the end ..and mmmm mmm MmmMMM that man is sexy. Good luck to her!!!!!
What the hell is this? bad video, bad song, too much make-up, bad wardrobe…everything is FLAWED!…and this is the girl people said was better than Beyonce just because she couldn’t stop shouting in that dreamgirls movie? Sad!
Neyo efffed her up with that crappy song and so did her stylist!
I was instantly singing this song after it went off. A hit I tell you, a hit!
You go girl!!!! I love the song and she look good in the video.
She looks amazing in the video and the concept was fresh. I think she would have shocked evrybody if she would have did a dance routine but i think she can save that for the next video but keep it up j hud.u look amazinging!!!!! can’t wait for the album.
I LOVE IT! Jennifer looks great and I love the song! Reminds me of Whitney Houston for some reason.
NOW I DONT ACTUALLY THINK JENNIFER IS THE BEST SINGER , I THINK THAT SHE DOESNT INFLUX HER EMOTIONS ENOUGH (GOING LOW, CRESCENDO, HIGH NOTES), BUT SHE CAN SING WELL ENOUGH TO DRAW ME INTO THIS VIDEO! I ACTUALLY DIDNT LIKE THE SONG UPON FIRST HEARING IT BUT WITH THE VIDEO I LIKED IT! SHE SOUNDED GREAT AND HER ACTING SKILLS HAVE TRULY GROWN EVEN FROM DREAMGIRLS!
SO PROUD OF YOU GIRL i WOULD REALLY VOTE THIS VIDEO UP ON BET!!!
YOU LOOKED GORGEOUS JUST STAY IN THE GYM !
AND MOVE FROM CHICAGO, LOL, THAT CITY IS TOO DEPRESSING AND YOULL NEVER REALLY GET TO YOUR FITNESS GOAL LIVING THERE
(IM FROM THERE AND I KNOW ITS TOO HARD!)
Cute video and the song is actually growing on me. Ryan G is too FINE….
LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!! NO HATE OVER HERE!
Love it.. I can’t wait to get her album.. she is singing real music and she has a real voice.. TRUST ME. The people that dislike her will come back a year later when music is just BEYOND stupid (like it is now) and appreciate Jen.
Hate It Next………… Something is missing when it comes to Ms. Hudson to me she got this fake conceited air to her
2 SNAPS AND CIRCLE! JEN I LIKE THE VIDEO! KUDDOS!
Gone ‘head, J Hudd! She is working in that video and I like the song. After the first listen it started to grow on me. I feel like she couldn’t come too too strong because her voice is so freaking stupendous. She had to lean back a little bit on her first single. Don’t worry. I bet she is coming with some serious vocal acrobats on the next single. For now, love it and the video is hot.
omg i looooooooooooooooooooooooooove this video go jhud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The mark of a good songwriter is the ability to convince us that the artist wrote and actually experienced what they are singing ala Janelle Monae when she sings “smile”, she looses her voice and f*cking cries – I feel that – but she didn’t write it – that song “means” something to her other than possible sales.
That is not what happened here. This is a Neyo song, with JHud overdubs. Boring video and song. His style and music selection sound too similar and usually overpower the artist singing it, like I’m hearing the same song over and over, with different singers on it within the same year or month even.
@ MOFO #84
Well put. I wasn’t sure what the problem was, but no i know. But Neyo is great song writer, it’s just J hud is a novice performer, and doesn’t know how to evoke emotion without 6 months of preparation.
I love this song! and the album drops on my birthday I will be the first in line to get it.
Yes, Jenny, this is it. I love the song and video. She’s reminds me of an ole skool throwback from “the day.” She’s doing it like a pro. Go on, Jennifer and do your thang.
-minus the video
-minus neyo writing it
-minus her wardrobe
-minus your bias
the song really feels good…old school feel…its a soundtrack to a movie before the movie is created…
SSSSIZZLING HHHOOTTT song. I’ve lived the experience. Well written. JHUD can do no wrong. She a master representation of what is BBB (Big, Black and absolutely Beautiful). Thank you for bring joy to my ears today.
I love it..i knew she wouldn’t disappoint….perfect song for her, and she didn’t over sing it or strain trying to hit notes. The video is nice. Her outfits were the best i’ve ever seen her in…she looked young cute and fresh….Overall, i love the whole thing. Good job. The song gone be a hit cause it’s so catchy…i can’t stop singing since i heard it on the radio yesterday…i didn’t even know she had a video for the song.
You gotta give it to Jhud, she is living her dream and the dream is besically living with her. I mean how many ppl can get the chance she has with singing and movies? I already seen what some wrote bout her “voice” but how many of these non-singing asses can touch her voice? All im saying is if these non-talented asses can sell then i bet she can to. Real talent is what we need. I loooooooove the song n the video is great damn the dude is fyneeee.
Good Luck Jhud and girl you got my support.
her and that jacket got on my nerves
Sorry, I’m not feeling it.
This is the type of musicians that we need today, J-hud is going to save R&B!
tianna do you know what leather jacket she is wearing? and what kind of leggings? I’m digging them both…
Damn that dude is fine! lol…I love the song and the video, because it really goes with the song. Jennifer don’t hurt ‘em gurl~ Can’t wait 4 that album!
typical, but nice.
She will sale really good her mary keyshia and alicia are on a mission to save r&b FRom those half naked singers out there and they have all my support
