Jamie Foxx has an incredible track record of success, and the talented actor/comedian has some serious plans for his upcoming album Best Night of My Life (known in another incarnation as Body). With previous Booth features Fall for Your Type, Winner and Living Better Now all slated to appear, Foxx could have another chart topping project on his hands. Of course adding a song featuring rising supernova Wiz Khalifa couldn’t hurt, so on the title track Foxx conjures up the same emotion and feeling of Unpredictable, from his 2005 effort. The similarities between the two tracks are downright eerie, from Hudson’s stripped down production to Foxx and Khalifa reprising Foxx and Ludacris’ original chemistry. For his part, Wiz delivers a verse involving his tattoos and appreciation of women who appreciate weed, so nothing earth shattering there, with Foxx’s vocals gliding over the beat, giving the record a smooth, unforced feel. Look for this one to lead off Foxx’s fourth album, soon to be released on December 21. Who knew the term “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” would still apply after five years?
