Jamie Foxx 

Unpredictable


Jamie Foxx
Unpredictable
(J)
Jamie Foxx was impossible to miss during the Oscar race of 2005. It may have been the critical praise Foxx received for his musical performances as Ray Charles in Ray that led him to the conclusion he should record an album of his own material, and so during the lull between Christmas and New Year’s he dropped his debut Unpredictable. Both Kanye West, repaying the favour, and hip-hop whore Snoop Dogg make appearances. Foxx tries his hand at Barry White 101 (minus the baritone) but instead comes off sounding like a poor man’s R. Kelly. Not to mention the lyrics and titles are cheesier than a frat boy attempting his last chance for romance at the Palace. The degree to which this album fails is about the only thing that was Unpredictable.
