Jennifer Hudson - "Spotlight" Lyrics

Jennifer Hudson -

Here is the brand spanking new “Spotlight” cover for the debut single from Jennifer Hudson‘s upcoming album. “Spotlight”, which was written and co-produced by Ne-Yo, impacts radio June 9 and will be digitally available at iTunes on June 10.

It’s a track that doesn’t really showcase Hudson‘s vocal range, which made her such a hit on American Idol and Dreamgirls. But it should still do well on radio. What do you think??

Listen here (YouTube), here (Quicktime) or here (Windows Media). Check out the lyrics below and feel free to make corrections in the comments!

Jennifer Hudson – “Spotlight” Lyrics

Are you a man who cherishes and cares for me?
Is that true? Is that true? Is that true?
Are you a guard in a prison, maximum security?
Is that true? Is that true? Is that true?
Do we stay home all the time cuz you want me to yourself?
Is that true? Is that true? Is that true?
Or am I locked away, had a feeling that I’d find someone else
Is that true? Is that true? Is that true?

[Chorus]
Well, I don’t like living under your spotlight
Just because you think I might find somebody worthy
Well, I don’t like living under your spotlight
Baby if you treat me right, you won’t have to worry

____ relationship, fulfilling your needs as well as mine
Is that true? Is that true? Is that true?
Or is this just my sentence, am I doing time?
Is that true? Is that true? Is that true?
If this is love, real, real love, then I’m staying no doubt
But if I’m just a prisoner, then I’m busting out
Is that true? Is that true? Is that true?

(Chorus)

Oh, you oughta be ashamed of yourself
What the hell do you think you’re doing?
Loving me, loving me, so _______
Baby, all I do is try
To show you that you’re my one and only guy
No matter who may come along
Open your eyes cuz baby I don’t lie

(Chorus x2)

that missing lyric – “or am i locked away” ????

this song’s catchy … i like it!

# 5

The intro sounds like Bleeding Love sped up…Ne-Yo, Timbaland…SO overrated…all of their stuff sounds the same/rip off of someone else….

# 6

I agree with R, it reminds me of Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis and the beginning sounds more and more like No One by Alicia Keys

go jhud she is amazing i love her!

# 9

no thanks, I really cant stand her voice.

this is great. it reminds me of stephanie mills.

It’s really boring.

I generally hate her but this song is good.
She’s not screaming!

Talk about lame. She’s better than this.

Love Hudson! Her voice is so refreshing good that I will listen to any thing she sings. However, my favorite music of her is still her “Dreamgirls”. And I bought the CD. Really love her voice. I think it is a worthy add to anyone who enjoyed the music: http://dealstudio.com/searchdeals.php?deal_id=103915&ru=279 , Gotta Love her!

Chicago Represent! This Russian News chick Angelina is from Chicago too: http://digitalfuntown.squarespace.com/dft-blog/2008/5/16/dft-news-episode-4.html

lyric corrections:
1st line:
Are you a man who LOVES and cherishes and cares for me?
1st blank: IS THIS relationship …
2nd blank: so WRONG

amazing how many people making hating comments on here who no one would pay to have them even sing in the shower!
Some songs are always better than others, but respect the artist — and yourselves — people.

Sounds exactly like Jordin Sparks.

Love the song it great! Grows on me everytime I here it!

“Or am I locked away, had a feeling that I’d find someone else” should be : “Or am I locked away, out of fear that I’d find someone else”

I think you can also download the whole album at Whogivesashit.com

Glad her music is finally coming out

People need to quit hating! This song is hot!
