Critical reception

The song received acclaim from music critics. Thomas Conner from Chicago Sun-Times admired Hudson's voice saying, "' Where You At,' written and produced by fellow South Sider R. Kelly, roars to a big finish with Hudson shouting, 'Deliver!' until she rockets right off the treble clef—just in time for an incredibly ill-advised fade-out."[1] Elysa Gardner from USA Today claims, "It's a credit to the singer's personal grace and her artistic instincts that she avoids easy sentimentality, dressing down a lover on R. Kelly-written single Where You At..."[2] Kevin Ritchie from Now Magazine enjoyed the lyrics, calling it a "vivid riposte to an elusive lover."[3] Genevieve Koshi from The A.V. Club acclaimed the song by saying, "the R. Kelly-written-and-produced “Where You At” manages a comparatively subtler, sexy groove, and sounds pretty much exactly like you’d expect an R. Kelly song sung by Jennifer Hudson to sound."[4] The music video for the song also won the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Music Video at the 43rd NAACP Image Awards.[5]
