Digital Girl

Album: Intuition (2008)
Charted: 92
  • This ballad features Kanye West and The-Dream. The latter produced this track along with Tricky Stewart. The duo are best known for being behind Rihanna's 2007 hit "Umbrella.
  • Foxx previously collaborated with West on the latter's 2005 chart-topper "Gold Digger." The actor/singer told BET's 106 & Park that rumors of a possible fall out with West were nonsense. He said: "Kanye is my man and always will be. The thing is, without Kanye I wouldn't have gotten in the music business and he knows that. We got him on the record 'Digital Girl.' He was actually performing somewhere in Germany and he took time out to give us a hot 32 bars. He is rapping, which is rare because Kanye has moved to the singing thing. We are all good and I'll do anything for that dude."
  • This samples T-Pain's 2008 hit single "Can't Believe It."
  • The rappers are tempted by four otherworldly women in the Hype Williams-directed music video. Other futuristic clips helmed by the legendary hip-hop director include Missy Elliott's "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)," TLC's "No Scrubs," Lloyd's "Girls Around The World" and The-Dream's "Walkin' On The Moon."
