If you want depth from Jamie Foxx, go see one of his movies. On his fourth album, Foxx dedicates himself almost entirely to hard-edged party tunes and sexed-up ballads, making for a convincing Casanova on the thundering bedroom jam "Hit It Like This." The one break from the good times is "Fall for Your Type," a somber track in which Foxx drops into a pained purr and gives guest Drake a run for his melancholy-player money. It's refreshing to hear him finally switch up his script.
