This is the title track and fourth single from American actor and singer Jamie Foxx's fourth studio album. The song was released on April 5, 2011.
"Best Night" is one of five tracks on Best Night Of My Life to be produced by Eric Hudson, whose previous credits include Ne-Yo's single "Can We Chill," and Kanye West's hit "Flashing Lights."
American hip hop artist Wiz Khalifa comes in at about 1:50 on the song. Foxx is not the first Oscar winner the Black and Yellow rapper has worked, with having previously collaborated with Three 6 Mafia.
The chorus of "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir" in "Lady Marmalade" is French for "Do you want to sleep with me tonight?" When Labelle performed it on television, they had to change it to "Voulez-vous danser avec moi ce soir" (Do you want to dance with me tonight?).
