Hollywood: A Story of a Dozen Roses is Jamie Foxx’s fifth studio album. The album was recorded at Jamie’s home studio and released on May 18, 2015 by RCA Records. It debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums and R&B Albums charts and #10 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart. This is Foxx’s third #1 R&B album chart entry and fourth top ten album on the Billboard 200 .
Foxx explained the meaning behind the title of his album:
“‘Hollywood’ is a bit of a mislead, it’s about when I am dating a person, I think it’s all great, and she went Hollywood on me, meaning she led me to believe it was something else. We’ve all had that in life — someone is with us and we are thinking this is what it is, and they go all Hollywood on us.”
