What we all have been waiting for this single is amazing and I cannot WAIT for the entire album to come out in September. It was worth waiting for, but no matter what this talented young woman touches it's platinum. Great job J.Hud!!

At last

I've been waiting ever since American Idol for a single, and now it's here! After accomplishing so much on the silver screen in such little time, I expect the same for Jennifer in music...Grammys galore. This single is smooth, polished, and classy- reminiscent of early Whitney. I have had the pleasure to meet Jennifer in person very recently, a chance meeting, and was impressed by her candor and natural beauty. I am sure you will all love this single and her album to come. Good Luck Jennifer! Keep in touch!

Simple melody and controlled vocals put Hudson in the "spotlight"

Although she only managed to finish in seventh place on the third season of ‘American Idol,’ Jennifer Hudson has certainly made a name for herself thanks to earning an Academy Award for her role in the film adaptation of ‘Dreamgirls.’ On “Spotlight,” Hudson trades in retro for recent as she aims to please a contemporary audience. Although there are throwback elements on “Spotlight,” which are mostly present in the instrumentation, Hudson’s vocals actually are a breath of fresh air compared to those of other R&B singers that are hot right now, and yet they still sound current. She also manages to not over-sing, which she has done a few times in the past. As for the lyrics, a few tired scenarios are painted, but the visual of Hudson living under her man’s “spotlight” gives the song an interesting turn. If “Spotlight” does not cement Jennifer Hudson’s position on the music scene, the chances of another song doing the same are slim. Fortunately for her, the song is solid and can stand on its own to further her musical career.
