Jennifer Hudson continues to churn out impressively-strong R&B cuts, this time uniting with Iggy Azalea for the infectious He Ain’t going Nowhere, throwing back to the disco/funk era on a Pharrell Williams-produced beat.

Speaking to Buzzfeed, He Ain’t going Nowhere definitely has some Nile Rodgers-indluence around it, with Hudson saying “We really worked to keep the sound relatable but the way the bass hits your chest and the guitar licks sort of tingle your ear really work well to transport you to a time in music history I just live for. It’s the sort of track you can’t listen to without moving and the fact that we were able to have Iggy join in on it was just what it needed. To be honest, I consider it one of the centerpieces of my album because it captures all the things that inspire me so well.”

He Ain’t going Nowhere will join January’s I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel) alongside Walk It Out on her upcoming third studio record JHUD, set to drop later this month.
