Jamie Foxx's second release as a solo artist is his first since his Oscar-winning portrayal of Ray Charles in the 2004 film RAY. It is natural, then, that UNPREDICTABLE would be a much higher-profile affair than 1994's PEEP THIS. The production credits include top-currency names like Timbaland and Sean Garrett. And guest stars? Forget about it. Common, Ludacris, Twista, Snoop Dogg, and Mary J. Blige, just to name a few, make appearances and help boost Foxx's credibility as one of the most popular kids on the block.
Foxx's music falls firmly into the category of sultry, hip-hop-inflected R&B a la R. Kelly. And like Kels, Foxx too has a penchant for bedroom themes, as UNPREDICTABLE pulses with the rhythm of sex. His study of Ray Charles's bluesy, elastic vocal style holds him in good stead, though: Foxx has an authoritative delivery on both uptempo grooves ("Warm Bed") and slinky slow jams ("VIP"). While not exactly groundbreaking, the album--with its superior production, excellent guest spots, and Foxx's impressive performances--still comes off a winner.
Artist Overview
A major star on television, the big screen, and radio, Jamie Foxx started out as a comedian and went through years of escalating recognition before winning an Oscar for his portrayal of Ray Charles in "Ray". Though a 1994 album was something of an underground hit, he didn't really break out as a singer until his guest appearance on Kanye West's "Slow Jamz." The song helped set the stage for his second album, released through J Records at the very end of 2005 -- Unpredictable reached number one and eventually went platinum. ~ Andy Kellman
