Jamie Foxx

"Body" (working title) (J Records)
Release Date: March 2010

On Jamie Foxx's last single he suggested that listeners blame their shortcomings on "the alcohol." Now he's offering even more questionable advice: recommending they quit their jobs altogether. "Quit Your Job" is the title of the potential first single off Foxx's new album, tentatively titled "Body." Helmed by Carlos "Los Da Mystro" McKinney and the-Dream, "Quit Your Job" finds Foxx playfully chanting, "I never had a girl like this/She fix me pancakes, she knows how to bake/I wanna be the one that's by your side/I wanna be the nigga that says goodnight," over a nursery rhyme-like, piano-laden production. Other songs slated to make the album include "Winner," produced by and featuring Justin Timberlake and rumored to have a guest spot from Jay-Z; the love song "Rejoice," by Raheem DeVaughn; the club track "Straight to the Dance Floor," on which Foxx sings, "I got my hands on my nuts and my bottle in the air"; the R. Kelly-esque ballad "Split Personality"; and the recently released street track, "Speak French."
