Early in the album's development, Ne-Yo told
that Hudson was ready to
get personal on her second studio album. When probed for details he
said that he might be producing the album. He also said "I'm pretty
good at writing personal records…It starts with her idea and her
thoughts." She's gone through a lot over the last year, so she has a
lot to talk about," he continues. "She's definitely gotten stronger.
The things that she's gone through and for her to still be upbeat
and happy, it's amazing."
