Fresh off his ridiculed Star Spangled Banner performance at the Money Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight, Jamie Foxx drops his new record, “Baby’s in Love.” The song will appear on his upcoming album Hollywood: A Story of a Dozen Roses to drop May 22nd.
Jamie also sat with Ellen to discuss the fiasco behind his highly criticized performance this past weekend.
“Anytime a black person sings the national anthem, you know we gotta ‘ooooo saayyyy can youuu’ [dramatized harmonies] but what did happen in the ring my ears came out, my inner ears. My inner ears were out and I’m singing with an organ so I can’t hear what the organ was doing with the big crowd so some of it was a little off. But…in the arena it killed, the telecast was a little off but we still love America.”
I honestly didn’t think it was as bad as a lot of others I have heard. You know no one can just sing the Star Spangled Banner the way it was originally recorded. Too easy. Check out the videos below!
