Background[edit]

According to Thomas Conner from Chicago Sun-Times, "the producer Rich Harrison dials everything back, including an interesting plunky muted piano, to showcase Hudson's voice, which builds slowly from ditty to diva in less than four minutes and never boils over."[3]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "No One Gonna Love You" was directed by Diane Martel and premiered on BET's 106 & Park and Vevo.com on June 24, 2011.[7] The video begins with Hudson reminding her boyfriend not to be late for their anniversary dinner and he becomes confused. Later, Hudson arrives at the restaurant and her boyfriend is not there, but he tries to call her but she ignores his call and goes back to their apartment. When she gets there, she tries to turn on the lights, which are not working. Then her boyfriend turns on a lamp and the place is filled with balloons and streamers. He then surprises Hudson by sneaking an engagement ring on her finger and she becomes overjoyed and they embrace. Scenes of Hudson performing the song in their apartment, as well as dancing with 2 other dancers on a chair, wearing a black hat are also featured.
