Everybody Needs Love

Album: I Remember Me (2011)


  • Hudson's labelmate Alicia Keys penned this neo-disco number. It was one of three that the very pregnant No One singer wrote for Hudson, the others being "Angel" and "Don't Look Down." "I must say that working with Alicia was my favorite sessions in the recording studio ever, and it was a learning experience," she said about Keys to MTV News. "She's just amazing to work with. We had such a good time together. It was an amazing, fun experience."
  • The song proved to be a family affair as Keys' husband Swizz Beatz produced the track and Alicia gave birth to a son, Egypt Daoud Ibarr Dean, days after their sessions.
