Jennifer Hudson Goes Disco With Help From R. Kelly on ‘It’s Your World’: Listen
By Shannon Carlin
Jennifer Hudson is getting her CeCe Peniston on with her new track “It’s Your World.”
On the disco track off J. Hud’s upcoming third album—her first since 2011—she’s hitting notes that only dogs can hear while promising to be the lady of her man’s dreams. She takes us back, but maybe a little too far back, like say before the women’s movement.
“Anything that you want from me, boy you can get it any time, any place,” Jennifer sings. “I’ll be your servant, your slave.”
R. Kelly helps out with a little smooth talking, letting her know, “You should have the world baby/Right in the palm of your hand.” And swearing that he’s the man for the job promising shopping sprees and fancy dinners galore. Even offering up his car, as a way to buy this lady’s love.
