Jamie Foxx: I am the saviour of R&B
Musician-turned-actor-turned-musician Jamie Foxx believes the R&B music scene needs rescuing from wallowing in the soulless, bland releases of late - and he thinks he’s just to man to do the saving. His 2005 album “Unpredictable” was a huge hit in the US and the success might have gone to his head.
“I am the saviour,” he announced recently.
“I’m definitely going out there with my mic and my shield to declare: ‘I am here to save R & B’.”
“I will have the people saying: ‘Sire, there is a man at the musical gates saying he is here to save R&B’.”
Indeed, Jamie. Indeed.
