Jamie Foxx Says Daughter Is A Big Part Of His Success

R&B singer Jamie Foxx, who just released his fourth studio album “Best Night of My Life,” says his 16-year-old daughter, Corinne, gave him the best advice when he began recording music. “When I first started I was doing this little slow music, you know, just R&B … and my daughter walked in and said, ‘What you doing?’ I said, ‘I’m working on the album.’ She said, ‘I hope you don’t put that on there because you going to put everybody to sleep,'” Foxx tells the Associated Press. Foxx released his debut album, ‘Peep This,’ back in 1994 but found commercial success with the release of his sophomore outing “Unpredictable,” a double-platinum album that featured production work and guest appearances from Kanye West, Ludacris and Tank. His third album “Intuition,” also went platinum and featured the Grammy-winning hit, “Blame It.” “A lot of times in order to be successful with music, you have to listen and sometimes allow other people to sort of steer you in the right direction,” Foxx said. “Best Night of My Life” is in stores now and features collaborations with top acts like Drake, Justin Timberlake, Rick Ross and T.I.
