New Song: Jennifer Hudson & Ne-Yo – ‘Think Like A Man (ft. Rick Ross)’

Published: Friday 13th Jan 2012 by Sam

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.

Cracking track!

    I know Ne-Yo and Rick Ross are always on point when it comes to collaborations but J-Hud is such a nice surprise.

    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.

    What ever Neyo sings his voice sounds out of this world AMAZING

  21. toohotfortv January 14, 2012

    Neyo has been listening to brandy from the sound of some of those ad-libs. I ain’t mad 😉

  22. Greg January 15, 2012

    I love this! This is what we want, Jennifer!

  23. LadyE January 15, 2012

    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

  24. John J. January 16, 2012

    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.

  25. toni February 5, 2012

    Jennifer this is the type of songs your fans want. I must agree with john, pillows should be released.
