Track of the Day
Mr. Hudson has made a name for himself in the music industry, and his track,Supernova, played a major role in that. Supernova is the second single off of Mr. Hudson’s second studio album entitled, Straight No Chaser released in 2009. With the help of the Louis Vutton Don, the collaboration created a single that had an 80’s pop vibe blended with a touch of that new age Hip Hop. The track has a real nice feel to it and is perfect to help one get over that midweek hump.
Influenced by 80’s pop icons and Hip Hop artists like, David Bowie, The Police, Kanye West and Andre 3000, Mr. Hudson has got that new age sound that is gaining popularity quick.

Straight No Chaser is Mr. Hudson’s first album released with Kanye’s label GOOD, and all his tracks on the album has got that reincarnated 80’s Pop vibe. Mr. Hudson is a popular choice for many new Hip Hop artists to collaborate with, and it’s because he’s got that fresh sound that blends well with their style of Hip Hop.
Supernova is a personal favorite from the album, but is not the only nice sounding track.
