Judith Hill – former backup singer for Michael Jackson and The Voice alumni, who is currently signed to Sony’s music label – recorded a ‘love letter’ song to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un – dissing James Franco … and the song has leaked online.
According to several sources, Hill had initially recorded the song as A Love Letter to James Franco and sent it over to The Interview producers with the hope that it would be used as one of its soundtracks. When that didn’t pull through, Hill then changed the title to A Love Letter to Kim Jong Un and modified the lyrics to contain, ‘You got me transcending heaven/so don’t be confused/James Franco ain’t got nothing on you.’
And the chorus? ‘Kim Jong-un/James Franco got nothing on you/Yeah yeah/Kim Jong-un/James Franco got nothing on you.’
And there is this: ‘I could wait here 127 hours/It’s true/There’s only one Oscar and baby it goes to you.’ Here Hill is making reference to Franco’s Oscar nomination for the movie 127 Hours.
According to Page Six, Hill intended the song to help broker peace between North Korea and the U.S, who are currently at each other’s throats over the massive Sony hacking scandal last year. So far, the U.S has imposed sanctions on 10 prominent North Koreans in retaliation for the cyber attack.
One wonders how Hill’s song will help matters.
