EDITORS’ NOTES

Successful in film, television, radio, and music, Jamie Foxx has the versatility and charisma of a modern-day Frank Sinatra. Foxx brings to Intuition, his third album, that effortless ability to play all sides at once. In the first three tracks, he moves from candy-coated pop (“Just Like Me”), to wildly tribal club beats (“I Don’t Need It”), then on to sneering hip-hop (“Number One”). With a strategy drawn from his acting experience, Foxx adapts to any given setting and makes us believe any role he’s in. He can play the cheated-on husband in “Just Like Me,” then turn around to embody the sultry adulterer in “Weekend Lover.” Through all of this shape-shifting Foxx’s voice is the constant. Sexy enough to be seductive, but gentle enough to be non-threatening, Foxx projects sincerity even when he’s emulating flavor-of-minute producers like T-Pain and The-Dream. Even at 41, Foxx can easily fit in with his junior competition, but he's most at home with a good slow jam. “Slow,” “Rainman,” and “Overdose” all reveal Foxx’s undying appreciation for Luther Vandross, Gerald Levert, and Keith Sweat, soul men from an earlier generation.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

I love this song!

Just when you think you are tired of hearing T Pain he helps out with this song. When I hear this on satellite I turn it all the way up. Jamie Foxx is a great singer as well. I heard his prior album and it was great, better than expected. Did I say I love this song???

Seriously

I was convinced that Itunes was a place where you DON'T have to spend $10 for a crappy album when all you really want is a song or two. But I guess things haven't really changed much. This is how online piracy was born! Let me buy what I want!
