Jennifer Hudson mixes two of her passions—music and acting—in the video for “No One Gonna Love You,” the second U.S. single from her sophomore album I Remember Me. In the Diane Martel-directed clip, the Oscar winner celebrates her anniversary, reminding her unreliable boyfriend (“The Wire’s” Hassan Johnson) about the special occasion. But when she arrives at the restaurant for their dinner date, he’s a no show. A disappointed Jen comes back to her apartment to discover that he’s planned a surprise.
In addition to showcasing her powerful pipes on the Rich Harrison-produced song, J-Hud busts out a few moves.
“This is the first time that I’ve had the chance to dance,” explained the star of the upcoming Winnie Mandela biopic. “But it was probably the part I anticipated the most and I actually had a lot of fun. I thought I accomplished it. You be the judge.”
