Jamie Foxx: Daughter helped my career

New York - Call her the guardian angel for Jamie Foxx's music career.

The Oscar and Grammy winner said on Tuesday his 16-year-old daughter, Corinne, gave him the best advice when he began recording music.

"When I first started I was doing this little slow music, you know, just R&B (...) and my daughter walked in and said, 'What you doing?' I said, 'I'm working on the album.' She said, 'I hope you don't put that on there because you going to put everybody to sleep,"' Foxx said.

His daughter told him reach out to younger artists to aid in his music career. And that's exactly what the 43-year-old performer did.

In 2005 Foxx released Unpredictable, a double-platinum album that featured production work and guest appearances from Kanye West, Ludacris and Tank. He followed that with 2008's Intuition, another platinum CD that featured the Grammy-winning party jam, Blame It. And this week Foxx released Best Night of My Life; the album has collaborations with top acts like Drake, Justin Timberlake, Rick Ross and T.I.

"A lot of times in order to be successful with music, you have to listen and sometimes allow other people to sort of steer you in the right direction," Foxx said.
