In what has to be one of the most pleasantly random collaborations we’ve seen in a minute, Jennifer Hudson, Ne-Yo, and Rick Ross have teamed up for new song ‘Think Like A Man’.
The hard-hitting mid-tempo is the lead release from the soundtrack to the movie of the same name (which hits theatres on March 9th).
How do the unlikely trio fare? Find out after the jump…
Yes, yes, and yes!
Ne-Yo and Officer Ricky turn in solid performances, it’s the ‘Dreamgirls’ star who really shines.
For the longest, I’ve wondered what “sound” could elevate Hudson’s musical cause. Here it is.
With its lush melody, piano-driven production, and right dose of “grit”, the cut compliments the singer’s oft problematic vocal.
Indeed, as a power-belter, far too often Ms. Hudson is boxed within the “church hymns” bracket – churning out material which is both at odds with “what’s hot” and her “mainstream” positioning (see: ‘Where You At’). As such, her sales potential has yet to be realised – an issue which could quickly be confined to the past should she dabble more in sounds such as this.
I LOVE it!
That is music right there!!!! Real talent, no bs, no autotune, no fast food microwave popcorn music, it’s REAL TALENT RIGHT THERE!!! Jennifer and Ne-Yo killed it, Rick rap was hot!!! I Love It!!! REAL MUSIC WITH REAL VOICES!!!
This track is THE HOTNESS!!!!! And have you heard her other unreleased track “Pillows”? JHud is on fire right now!
Great track. Jennifer never disappoints. Neyo and Rick doing their thang as well.
I have been waiting for this kind of music
from her and it is on now, she always had
it and she has gotten ready to push the
enevlope even further and harder because
she has got what it take and we all know
Take it to the top Jenn, go on and
do your thing.
i like it.
it make me laugh thinking about neyo without his hat! that s*** is funny as hell and alway will be!
Fantastic. Great job!
I know Ne-Yo and Rick Ross are always on point when it comes to collaborations but J-Hud is such a nice surprise.
I love good R’n’B!
I’m really liking this!!!
work!!!!! I actually like Rick’s verse, cus it fits the song for once.
Random yet it works. OMG I f****** luv J-hud on this. Really hope she redeems herself on the 3rd album cuz I simply couldn’t get with this 2nd one. And it’s always great to hear my boo Ne-Yo on a track. and you can’t go wrong with Rick rocks these days. Luvs it!
Love it! Loved the JHud/Neyo pairing on his album so expected more magic from them and surprisingly the Rick Ross verse fits in with the song.

i this is for the sound track to the movie based on the steve harvy movie. act like a woman think like a man.
What ever Neyo sings his voice sounds out of this world AMAZING
Neyo has been listening to brandy from the sound of some of those ad-libs. I ain’t mad 😉
I love this! This is what we want, Jennifer!
Jhud & Neyo sound great but the song itself is really boring IMO esp. the hook…wanted to like it but I just can’t
Oh and Ross? Forget about it..awful
Jennifer Hudson , you hit this right out the ball park. You are a superstar and great things will continue to come your way. I am loving this track and I can not wait for the video. Ange reported the song ‘Pillows’ is another good track and should be released, because just like this track it is a hit as well. I hope you actually read some of these comments from your fans.
Jennifer this is the type of songs your fans want. I must agree with john, pillows should be released.
