“The Literary Heat”
“She says she usually don’t, but I know that she fronts,” are the lyrics and claim to fame in Jamie Foxx’s 2009 smash hit and music video, “Blame It” featuring T Pain. Just one banger from his “Intuition” album, the video begins like a movie production against your classic blue black night scene among heavy hitters like Samuel Jackson, producer Ron Howard and many others. The list is too long to mention, but this video is as entertaining to watch as your classic Godfather mafia movie.
This time, Jamie ” The Godfather of RnB” is blaming the alcohol for all of these gentlemen late night prowls on the club scene. The summer anthem of 2009 for the fellows resonates a catchy hook from a past time Christina Milian jam, “Say I,” but there isn’t harm done in knowing that Jamie Foxx is a comedian and follows up with a girl-friendly video, “Just Like Me” featuring actress Taraji P. Henson.
Quite possibly the only comedic artist to be taken seriously with equal weight as an actor and singer, you can expect for Jamie’s hit to ring a familiar tune all year long. “Blame it” is certainly geared to the male dominated Hip Hop audience, but the ladies can appreciate this work by Jamie Foxx who is bringing the stylish persona, talent and friends with him all the way to the top with this top production. Press Forward and then play it again.
