Jennifer Hudson Goes on the Run in ‘Dangerous’: Listen
By Marissa G. Muller
Following in the disco sheen of “It’s Your World,” the duet with R. Kelly she shared back in July, “Dangerous” shows that Hudson’s diva vocals were meant to be paired with dance beats. On it, she’s as much of a vocal powerhouse as ever, singing about the things she’d do for her man.
“Think we’re running for the cops now/ Even if we get caught now/ Anything for you/ Hold my body up for ransom/ Because I want to get hands on,” she belts out over a stomping beat.
The track is one of the more upbeat cuts in her catalog, especially in contrast to the slow-burning jam, “Walk It Out,” produced by Timbaland. It also makes one wonder when Hudson is going to gift us all with a straight dance album.
As she proves here and on David Guetta’s 2011 track “Night of Your Life,” her vocals are meant for the club.
