Jamie Foxx has truly done it all. He was already a credible actor when he dropped "Unpredictable" back in 2005. He caught some people off guard with his ability to stay current with his blend of hip hop & soul. He stayed true to that same formula with his next album "Intuition". It left fans wanting to hear more. They wanted to see more growth as an R&B singer. Now Jamie Foxx is back with "Best Night Of My Life".

"Best Night Of My Life" starts off with a cool improv of "This Will Be (Intro)". He kicks off the album right with the feel good title track featuring Wiz Khalifa. Then the album takes a turn for the worse with a bunch of rap/R&B songs that are an attempt to reclaim his "Blame It" status. The worse being "Freak" & "All Said And Done". "Hit It Like This" is corny and "Yep Dat's Me" ft. Ludacris has potential to be his next radio hit, but the song falls short with weak lyrics and and an even weaker cameo from Soulja Boy. The problem with these songs is Jamie's voice sounds so generic and his use of auto-tune brings nothing new. He should have sold these songs to Lloyd or Bobby Valentino they could use a hit.

Where Jamie Foxx excels and sets himself apart from the Trey Songz of the industry is his slow jam ballads. Jamie's voice is built for that smooth, lay with your partner flow. His ballads are well written and very well sung. (If it weren't for the ballads, his last album would have been awful) "Fall For Your Type" ft. Drake is a very good slow tempo track that fits well with Jamie's style. "15 Minutes" & "Sleeping Pill" show why we like Jamie Foxx. He doesn't over sing or adlib, just pure love making soul. Unfortunately, there aren't as many slow songs as we would like. Mid tempo songs like "Gorgeous" and "Let Me Get You On Your Toes" are also solid.

Triple Threat. It's a term used for talented artist who excel at three different categories. Jamie Foxx is a perfect example with his comedy, acting and singing. He is equally successful in each. This is officially Jamie Foxx's fourth album. (alot of people disregard "Peep This" from the early 90's) and he has failed to make an album better than "Unpredictable". He seems to be trying to recreate the success of "Blame It" instead of topping his best album to date. This is an average album that wets the appetite of fans with some bright spots but leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

This cd made me really sad lol...him singing "this will be" about 45 sec. was one of the very few songs a sort of liked on this cd. Every singal song on the cd had the whole t-pain computerized voice on there and that really makes me mad to hear someone who can sing a well as jamie can do that. THE WHOLE CD, maybe one or two songs but the WHOLE cd...no no sir lol. most songs were strickly about sex.n thats okay for 1 maybe 2 but like 9 outta 10. naaa. but yeah, thats all.

I don't know but usually after hearing a CD once or twice I tend to at least like 80% of the CD. But with this CD I can't say that I like too much of it. It's like its an advertisement for patron and partying. I like good R&B and this doesn't meet my standards. Very disappointed.

I really like Jamie Foxx, and this album is probably my favorite. Great songs throughout--slow jams, including "Fall For Your Type" (one of his best) and upbeat hip-hop songs. Solid album from a great singer.

This cd wasn't even close to my expectations. At this point of Jamie's career, there should be more maturity with his music. Isn't there more to life than women and going to the club, especially at his age? Many of the songs sound the same, and guest appearences from the likes of T.I. and Justin Timberlake can't save this cd.

To be listening to any other like Jamie Foxx, he's the coolest R&B artist even between seeing him be an actor mostly back in the 90's.
