Best Night of My Life

by: Jamie Foxx

Jamie Foxx’s fourth album is packed with hooks, gloriously expensive productions, superstar guest shots, and smile-inducing frivolity. While Foxx may not push his voice as hard as before, he’s still got the chops to carry the moody Drake feature “Fall for Your Type,” while the track’s icy cold, hip-hop landscape is just one example of Foxx having his finger on the pulse. Smart choices come from all over the 2010 urban music spectrum as current superstars like Justin Timberlake and T.I. (both on the standout cut “Winner”) rub shoulders with rave-rap production (“Sex on the Beach”) and electro-injected R&B (“Freak”). Charisma is the thing as Foxx free associates R. Kelly style during the title cut (“Girl, can I be real/I just wanna feel/On your booty/That’s not a big deal”) or playfully mocks his guest Soulja Boy by opening “Yep Dat’s Me” with a “Jamie Foxx Tell ‘Em.” Add up the highlights and you’ve got a substantial good time. ~ David Jeffries
