Intuition

Intuition is the third studio album by Jamie Foxx. It was released on December 16, 2008 in the United States under J Records. The album debuted at number 1 on the Top US R&B/Hip Hop Albums Charts and number 3 on the US Billboard 200, selling 265,000 copies in its first week. Intuition has sold 1 million copies in the U.S. alone, as of May 2010, and has been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

This album consists of 15 tracks.

To promote the album, Jamie Foxx went on the 40-city tour. Visit our gallery to see the photos from The Blame It Tour.

“‘Unpredictable” was more, like, slow, bedroom things, which was great but when I went on the road we had all these ballads, so sometimes I had to work a little harder to keep people’s attention,” Jamie Foxx told Billboard. “With (‘Intuition’), we’ve got all these legitimate club, international hits and the tempo is up. People hear this record and go absolutely nuts for it.”

The Timbaland-produced track “I Don’t Need It”  was released as a radio-only single in May 6, 2009. The track was initially supposed to gain a full release, but failed to get one due to Jamie Foxx needing to prepare for The Blame It Tour.
