West is now repaying the favour by working on Hudson’s second disc. He told us how the collaboration happened:
“It was a gradual thing that came into focus. Kanye had heard the first album- he was feeling it… We were introduced in London and we had mutual appreciation. So then we made it more formal and I signed to his label and he executive produced the album.”
And as if working with West wasn’t cool enough Mr H’ also looks likely to appear on Jay- Z’s Blueprint 3. He told our man Rickie:
“Wow- They flew me out to Hawaii. The track that I was meant to be singing on was called History and I kind of flopped on it.
“And then I did another joint and we just kicked it out the park and that’s the one Jay Z loves. I hope Jay Z doesn’t change his mind before the record comes out. It’s called Forever Young- It’s an 80s number.”
Of his own forthcoming record the Londoner said: “I just wanted to kick them in the nuts with this record. I just wanted to make a big bold, punchy pop record. I’ve been influenced by who I’ve been working with.”
Hudson has also been working with Estelle, Kid Cudi and new artist I Blame Coco.
