"Think Like a Man" is a single by Jennifer Hudson and Ne-Yo featuring Rick Ross. It is a soundtrack from the movie of the same name.

Music video[edit]

The music video for the song was released on Hudson's official VEVO account on 29 February 2012.[1] It features scenes from the movie. It also features cameo appearances of the featured artist Rick Ross and the film's actor Kevin Hart.[2]


The video shows a stressed out Jennifer Hudson in her office, who was visited by film actor Kevin Hart. It was later intersected by Hudson and her other co-workers in the office doing a dance sequence. She was later accompanied by Ne-Yo, who sings his verse. The duo was seen dancing and foolishly playing around a crimson coloured background.

They are later cut by Rick Ross' appearance as he raps his verse. The video later closes with Hart trying to make Ne-Yo jealous by flaunting that he is on the line with Hudson. However, in fact, Hudson was actually contacted by Ne-Yo seconds earlier, asking her to take a break and destress, as he picks her up in 5 minutes.[3]

Throughout the whole video, it was intercepted by scenes of the film featuring Chris Brown, Meagan Good and Jerry Ferrara.
