Jennifer Hudson And Renee Rapp Take On “Dangerously In Love”
There’s been speculation surrounding Jennifer Hudson for a couple reasons this year. The first was her potential relationship with Common. After the pair showed off some PDA earlier this year she was non-committal when discussing the details of the relationship. The dating reports go all the way back to early this year but the couple are clearly content to keep things pretty lowkey. There’s also been rumors swirling, not helped by Hudson herself, or a potential Verzuz between her and Fantasia.
On the other hand, Renee Rapp is having quite an impressive breakout 2023. Her rise in star power ultimately concluded with a nomination for Best New Artist at the MTV Video Music Awards. While she and Peso Pluma were eventually beaten out by Ice Spice, it’s still a pretty significant achievement to be nominated.
