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??

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?

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?


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)

    I love her. Yah people need to quit hating. Just because she can sing. If yah can sing then I will shut up. You can’t cuss up on this *****. Crazy. People be quiet. Because she can sing doesn’t mean that you can sing. She be sounding better then Jordin Sparks. She takes singing lessons. J. Hud doesn’t have to. She come out right. You know
