|Jamie Foxx chronology
Intuition is the third studio album by R&B singer Jamie Foxx. It was released on December 16, 2008 in the US under J Records.
The album reached the top three on the US Billboard 200 chart, and number one on the Top US R&B/Hip Hop Albums Charts, which it topped for six consecutive weeks. The album features several guest artists, including T.I., Ne-Yo, Kanye West, Fabolous, T-Pain, The-Dream and Drake.
Album concept 
Intuition, as Foxx describes it, will focus on the needs and wants of the opposite sex. "On my radio show I have this panel of beautiful women and they were talking about how men with a lot of money aren't all that. But if a guy has no money, that's no good either,” Foxx explained. "So I was thinking, What does a woman want? We go from there and build the story and the songs."
"Just Like Me", was released as the lead single on November 11, 2008. The song debuted at number forty-eight on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and peaked at number eight. It also peaked at forty-nine on the Billboard 100. The remix of Ne-Yo's "Miss Independent," titled "She Got Her Own" was released as the second single on December 14, 2008. The third single, "Blame It" featuring T-Pain, was released as the third single on January 26, 2009. In the first week of February, "Just Like Me", "Blame It", and "She Got Her Own" charted on the top-ten in Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at number eight, number one, and number two, respectively. While on the Conan O'Brien show Foxx performed the remix of the song "Digital Girl" featuring rapper Drake, he later confirmed in an interview with MTV News that it would be a single off Intuition. The full studio version leaked on June 19, 2009, featuring Drake, Kanye West and The-Dream.
Chart performance 
The album debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200, selling 265,000 copies in its first week. The album stayed in the Billboard 200's top ten for the first two months it was released. Intuition has sold one million copies in the US alone, as of May 2010, and has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
Critical reception 
The album has received generally mixed reviews. The Boston Globe reviewed the album positively, stating: "Like many contemporary R&B albums, the cameos sometimes crowd the main attraction, but Foxx is wise enough to intuit when it suits him best to share the spotlight." VIBE had a mixed review for the album, stating: "What is missing from Intuition is a balance between the party records and the slow jams. The division displays a lack of cohesiveness that separates the effort from being a great album into just a collection of potential singles."
Emily Heward of MusicOMH.com, however, was less impressed with the album, commenting: "[Intuition's songs are] lost amidst over-enthusiastic vocal effects" and that "it is hard to recognize the soulful voice that landed him his Oscar."
The Blame It Tour 
In May 2009, Foxx announced he was going on tour in the support of his third album Intuition. The 40-city tour kicked off on July 2 in Anaheim and ended in October.
