So, this song still does nothing for me. And this video doesn’t really change that. I wanted to love it, but I can’t. It just feels lifeless and programmed. And I know Pharrell is top of the charts, but this song is just not giving me the fire and soul I really want Jennifer Hudson to be hitting us with musically. I cannot get invested in this song at all.
J. Hud looks great and all — almost like a totally different person. But this is a tired disco-lite song that really lacks the punch that the genre really had. We will forget about this song in less than a year, sadly.
That’s all I got y’all!
However, I liked this song a bit more when she did it at the Soul Train Awards and brought out Evelyn “Champagne” King to blend it with “I’m In Love” and Chaka Khan to sing “Do You Love What You Feel”, because, HELLO. It really just shows how J. Hud’s song pales in comparison to the previous greats. I want it to be better. Peep that clip after the jump.
