Foxx, 2004 Best Actor Academy Award winner for his portrayal of Ray Charles in the film “Ray,” will release his third studio album, Best Night of My Life, on Tuesday, December 21 on J Records. The album features the lead single, “Fall For Your Type,” a ballad featuring Drake. Best Night of My Life, the follow-up to Foxx’s 2008 multi-platinum selling release, Intuition, which featured the Grammy Award-winning single “Blame It,” follows the same winning formula of infectious R&B ballads and club bangers. Joining in the album’s revelry are Drake, Rick Ross, Justin Timberlake, T.I., Ludacris, Soulja Boy, Wiz Khalifa and Rico Love. Foxx also enlisted A-list producers Eric Hudson, Bink!, Danja, Rico Love, Noah “40” Shebib and Malay & KP.
Foxx’s December 2008 release, Intuition, debuted at #3 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, #2 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and featured two Top 10 singles - “Blame It” and “Just Like Me.” In December 2005, Jamie released his J Records debut album Unpredictable, which entered at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 and Current R&B Albums charts. Sparked by the success of the album’s title track, Unpredictable sold 597,554 units in its first week of release. After the second week of release, Unpredictable jumped to #1 on the Top 200 chart and eventually won Jamie an American Music Award in 2006 for Favorite R&B/Soul Male Artist.
