I thought Kanye West protegé Mr Hudson would be huge by now, most likely with my No. 14 song of last year, the soul-dubstep track “There Will Be Tears.” But it’s the upcoming single, “Supernova,” featuring Yeezy in high-autotune mode, that seems poised to break through. At least on the more liberal UK charts, that is. (Notice Kanye’s affected pronunciation of “ch-awnce.”) And it’s the totally winning remix, by fellow Brit star Calvin Harris, that is the real find (streaming below). Song of the summer?
