They made this song before they did the 808’s cuts:

“That was my last day in Hawaii,” he explains. “I was about to go back to London for a couple of weeks.” Before the U.K. native departed, he and the Chi-Town MC sipped on a few drinks, and then returned to the studio. “We just did it at the last minute,” says Hudson. “It sounded massive and everyone was dancing around. Kanye knew he [did] it again.”

Once the record was complete, West sent it along to Mr. Carter. “I think [Jay-Z] played it 150 times in a day, because he rang Kanye up and said, ‘I just looked at iTunes and the count is at 150,’” Mr Hudson reveals. “And that was only 24 hours later [after he received the song]. With the good news in tow, the singer headed back to England. “I went home happy that I had made a track and Jay-Z liked it.”

While Mr Hudson has not yet had the opportunity to be in the studio alongside Jay, the rapper took a liking to the pop star’s distinct sound from afar. Hudson is featured on two other songs on The Blueprint 3, though their titles remain a mystery. “I sang on a whole lot of beats, so I don’t know which ones they’ll be using,” he admits. “It’ll be a surprise for me. I said to Kanye the other day when we were in L.A., ‘Are you sure I’m on three tracks?’ [and] he’s like, ‘Yeah, you are.’”

Props to Rap-Up

Ben talks to MTV News about going from singing to simply put food on the table to going on tour with Kanye and working with Jay-Z:

And when West informed Hudson that he would be featured on three songs on Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 during the interview, Hudson was shocked.

“Am I?” Hudson asked.

“Yeah, well, you have, like, a few,” West replied. “The song ‘Forever Young’ is incredible, and I want you to do a few more. I want you to do the chorus for ‘She’s Like That All the Time.’ Just outright do the chorus.”

Hudson worked with West last summer on a variety of projects including 808s & Heartbreak, but he said the icing on the cake was the fact he appears to have impressed Jay-Z.

“I hope Jay … Jay-Z still likes it. I call him Jay like I’ve met him more than twice, but we flipped [Bob Dylan’s] ‘Forever Young.’ … But to be on a Jay-Z album and a Kanye West album in six months … I’m pinching myself. To be honest, it just does not sink in.”
