Jamie Foxx

Best Night of My Life

(J-Records)

Sounds Like: Foxx should stick to being hilarious, because this record sure is funny, but as a mystifyingly boring disc of slow-tempo overproduced guest spots.

Free Association: That Justin Timberlake song is not enough to save this sinking ship.

For Fans Of: Eddie Murphy, Tyrese, Common, Luda, actor-rapper singers.

Keyshia Cole

Calling All Hearts

(Geffen/Interscope)

Sounds Like: The Oak-town native’s fourth drops and she’s already got a Nicki collab to be proud of, plus guests like Faith and Timbaland, on this strong LP.

Free Association: Her voice has cleaned up, less whine-singing and more singing.

For Fans Of: Mary J., Brandy, The Way It Is, baby mama drama.

Keri Hilson

No Boys Allowed

(Interscope)

Sounds Like: The wonky sophomore from Timbaland’s pet is full of confusing, busy pop songs and lackluster guest spots drowning out her unremarkable voice.

Free Association: Um, Nelly uses the phrase “shake your anus” on “Lose Control.”

For Fans Of: Rihanna, girls with feathered weaves and press-on nails.

Ciara
