While in NYC recently the multi-talented star stopped by Hot 97 for an interview with Nessa. With new music on the way, Foxx talked about his recording process these days, his 21-year-old daughter’s involvement, and advice he received from Timbaland. He also revealed that the new album title was inspired by a recent relationship, where he had a 103 fever yet his girlfriend still wanted to go to a movie premiere.

Jamie, who is close friends with Chris Brown, said that they have talked about some of Brown’s mistakes, and shared that he was impressed with the R&B star for bringing his new daughter with him to the Jimmy Kimmel Show.

“I know the Chris who comes around unannounced and dances around with my sister who has down syndrome for hours,” he said.

Foxx also revealed one of the biggest pieces of advice he has given the singer in the past.

“A lot of people want to see you crash and burn,” he said. “People lie to you Chris. People will tell you it’s all good and it ain’t all good. I’ll tell you it’s all bad and it’ll get good.”

As for his controversial joke about Bruce Jenner, he explained why he decided not to release a statement to apologize.

“I’m not going to release a statement because I do jokes,” he said. “And you can’t put comedians in the same bowl as CNN, FOX, you can’t do that. We do jokes. I didn’t see that joke as being any more relevant than the joke I did about Suge [Knight].”

We are throwing it back today, but not too far.  Each year at Grammy time, music legend Clive Davis hosts his annual pre-Grammy Gala, and we are taking it back to the 2006 event, where singer/actor Jamie Foxx performed a special version of his hit “Do What It Do.” This live performance version included R&B vocalist Tank on backgrounds, and featured an impromptu audience performance from powerhouse singer Fantasia. One word VOCALS!!!!

Jamie acknowledges some of the legends that were in attendance, such as Diana Ross and Babyface. He sings to Fantasia, “I’ll cook and clean; Babyface taught me what to do. Babyface wave your hand.” The energy, chemistry, and atmosphere in this room were simply amazing. Count on Foxx to cut up in a good way in such a formal setting. He later brought out Mario and Jodeci to sing as well!

“Some say that Hip-Hop killed the R&B singer but the record sales say he’s still alive. If you love R&B, if you love real music stand up,” said Foxx. “I’m a student too and I’m not ashamed to say R&B is alive.”

Enjoy the special throwback above!
