“You must have the rap producer with the know-how of putting tracks together on a new recording,” a robotic voice booms at the beginning of Jennifer Hudson‘s new song, “Walk It Out”. Who could it mean? Pharrell‘s pretty big these days; did the duo team for another track?

Actually, it’s yet another longtime producer in the genre, Timbaland, with whom Hudson’s collaborated for the single, a fact set in stone around a minute into the song, when the producer’s deep voice, vocal effects stacked atop, swoops in with a quick verse before  the Oscar winner gets to work.

“Walk It Out” is a smooth, slow-tempo jam featuring a chorus that jumps from one octave to another with relative ease. On the verses, Hudson croons to a dude who, if she didn’t better, “I’d think you was flirting.” She proceeds to turn the heat up a bit with lines like “I know you wanna take me to your room / And I wanna go your way / But you gotta treat me like a lady.”
