Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #150 – “I Run, “from Chi-Raq

 

150. “I Run, “from Chi-Raq

I’ve already said once before on this list in so many words — if you wanna make a song sound better, put Jennifer Hudson on it. In the other case, it was a song that was just okay that she elevated. This is a good song that she makes very good. This is straight gospel and it’s hard not to be moved by this one. This is one of those songs where, if it were playing over the end credits of the movie (it doesn’t in this one), you don’t get up. You listen to it. That’s the power of Jennifer Hudson.
