Jamie Foxx is known as an Oscar winning actor, not a musician! Although he did surprise us all with his performance in Dreamgirls. Well, get ready to know Jamie the music artist, because his album Intuition hits stores today! And believe it or not, this isn't Jamie's first album.
His last one, Unpredictable, came out in 2005. But fans of his will be happy to know that Intuition is a huge departure from Unpredictable.
Jamie stopped by Extra to talk to Mario Lopez about the album, and the all-star collaborations he landed. He told him, "We got T.I., T Payne, Timberlake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne! We really wanted to make sure the uptempo records would get us in the clubs because with Unpredictable, it was a lot of ballads."
On a sadder note, Jamie took the time to comment on the terrible situation that happened to Jennifer Hudson's family. He said, "We keep our hopes up for her… She's healing herself…getting herself together. What can you say?" As for recording with Hudson, he admitted, "I would love to go out on the road with Jennifer."
Maybe that's just what Jennifer needs to get back on her feet after such a horrible tragedy. But we still think enough time hasn't passed for her to start working yet. Hopefully Jamie and Jennifer's other friends can eventually encourage her to get back to work.
