Intuition review

Romance and never-ending optimism from Jamie Foxx

Looking at Jamie Foxx and listening to his music it is very difficult to believe that he is already 41 years old. This eternally young, bright and emotional artist continues to please the audience both as an actor and as a singer continually acting and never forgetting to record albums. At the end of this year the talented songwriter and performer once again joins efforts with his long-time friends Kanye West, Timbaland and other outstanding figures of modern show business in order to record his third studio creation Intuition. The new record which is due to appear in stores at the end of this year undoubtedly takes off where the second album, 2005’s Unpredictable that eventually got unbelievably successful, has ended. R&B, hip-hop and pop music are mixed on Intuition embodying in 15 great tracks each of which is refined with a penetrating singing of a person who has once brilliantly played the role of who but Ray Charles. On the whole the album proves to be the same light and soulful as both of Jamie Foxx’ first works and will give you over an hour of feeling good, romance and never-ending optimism.

Intuition consists of two parts

One look at the Intuition track-list is enough to understand that Jamie Foxx has been once again lucky to work with the most venerable R&B and hip-hop performers and it is no secret that this makes already half the album’s success. Besides it shows that 90 percent of collaborations are concentrated in the first part of the album. The record opens with a contagious and very melodious composition Just Like Me featuring T.I. about the soul mate its main character has finally found. A light danceable track I Don't Need It with a memorable chorus and simple lyrics contrasts with a heavier Number One performed with Lil’ Wayne both of them being ready-made club hits. It is practically by a tradition that Kanye West joins Foxx on another danceable composition Digital Girl on which the presence of The-Dream is also marked whereas T-Pain has contributed a verse to Blame It, a bit overloaded with special effects. Definitely one of the album’s highlights is an R&B ballad She Got Her Own featuring Ne-Yo and Fabolous refined with a nice sample and the title Intuition Interlude is a beautiful boundary between the first and the second parts of the album. The latter mainly offers more soulful romantic ballads which demonstrate Foxx’ sensual nature and a wide vocal range. Ballads Why, Freak'in Me refined with female vocals from Marsha Ambrosius and Slow with recognizable effects from Timbaland and the album closers are most beautiful slow songs Overdose about abuse and not only a drug one and an optimistic bonus track Love Brings Change.

An original artist who has no need to prove anything

Completely realizing that the commercial side of work plays a significant role most of the R&B and hip hop artists record more and more collaborations lately and Jamie Foxx is not an exception in this respect. One can already not worry too much who to invite for that purpose as the main characters in the new millennium are those authors and producers whose names can be found on the Intuition track list. Yet being an original artist who has no need to prove anything Foxx has rightfully considered that he did not have to sing the whole album with guest stars so he sings most of the new songs by himself. Nevertheless due to a faultless work of a whole production team that needs no presentation any more all the tracks are stylish, rich in sounding and very harmonious. Samples, arrangements, beats, vocal processing, all of this is present on Intuition and Jamie Foxx’ vocals continue to surprise and caress the ear. Very soon these new hits will be played on the radio and all the doubts concerning the successfulness of his music career will be surely gone, if anyone still has them.
