Academy award-winning actor and Grammy Award-nominated singer and songwriter Jamie Foxx -- currently riding high on pop, R&B, and rap charts as Kanye West's guest on his #1 single 'Gold Digger', is ready to take the world by storm with his J records debut Unpredictable. Features guest appearances by Kanye West, Mary J. Blige, Pharrell Williams, Ludacris, and Twista. The first single will be the album's title track 'Unpredictable', that features rap phenomenon Ludacris. This Dual Disc version includes the album in enhanced sound, along with multimedia features as music videos, documentary footage, photo galleries, web links, and other enhanced content. 2005.
Lest you think Jamie Foxx is simply capitalizing on his Oscar-winning turn in Ray, don't forget that Unpredictable is actually a follow-up (albeit 11 years later) to his 1994 debut, Peep This. In fact, Unpredictable even sounds like a slow jams album from the '90s; despite featuring guests like Snoop, Kanye West, and The Game, Foxx isn't trying to out-club Ciara or Amerie with a series of hip-hop-flavored tracks. Instead, he relies on getting his croon on with tried-and-true R&B balladry. Unpredictable actually gets rather predictable over the course of 15 songs, too many of which begin to meld into one another. But on the best songs, like the sublimely acoustic "Heaven" and his duet with Mary J Blige ("Love Changes"), Foxx reminds you that he has been singing just as long as he's been acting; this is no Jamie-Come-Lately. --Oliver Wang

I love what he did with his music.
I read a couple of people's response and they think this album was a waste of a good voice...NOT! I think Jaime was trying to appeal to his urban reviewers...staying hiphop, r&b and soul. This is kind of hard for other people that are not really into this type of music to like this album.
I enjoyed every song on the cd. I will keep it funky and admit that I really wasn't feeling his remake with Mary J. Blige. Its a good song, its just I am no longer a fan of sampling beats from classic songs but it is a good song (let's just say it wasn't for me). I also disliked the his final song. Don't get me wrong its a good song but i can't name how many cds i buy and the last song is either a church song or "thank you momma song". I just get bored with them....although I recognize others like them.
Other than that, the cd was a great effort put forward.
I think the beats are nice and his lovely voice blends very well.
1-5 was hot (can listen to all the way)(top production)
6-8 (hmmm ok) (very familiar)
9-11 (honestly really can't recall but i think production picked backed up)
12 (Storm song) (is when i actually started paying attention again)
interlude with common should have actually been a song.
Lastly the song that made me think of something from the early 90's was the "3 letter word" (another to my dislike list).
So, considering I can listen to over 10 songs...makes it official...i would defanitely buy it again if i lost it.
