Reviews

“Infatuation”
“In Living Color” comic actor Foxx chases his first musical hit, as he starts out-of-the-gate with a straightforward, slow-paced ballad. Despite the mechanical, formulaic production, the soul of the song shines throught with a heartfelt vocal. A Foxx worth pursuing. – Billboard magazine, 1994
