Ever since first Mr. Hudson first blast out the gate with his borderline hit, “Supernova,” the jury has always ended up hung. Not “Hung” like that mediocre HBO show starring the wackest Punisher ever, but hung in the sense that Mr. Hudson’s track record has been spottier than a heroin fiend’s arm despite his mentor Kanye claiming he’d turn the UK singer into Franky Bloke Eyes 2035. The song with Cudi was forced. The feature with Hov was cheap. That string quartet shit was ear suicide.
However, it seems as if the G.O.O.D. Music fam was just waiting for the appropriate timing and song to capitalize on their only chance for a European takeover. Increasing intimidating gee-tars and dialing down the dreariness of the previously leaked version, “Anyone But Him” is a well-stirred pot of indie rock and Hip-Hop that might actually be beating down doors at Clear Channel come spring.
