This smooth, down-tempo ballad is a single from American actor and singer Jamie Foxx's fourth studio album, Best Night of My Life. The Canadian rapper Drake, who also penned this track, spits a verse.
The song finds Foxx trying to convince himself that he has found the right girl as he always falls for that particular type.
The song's music video was directed by Chris Robinson and Drake; model Jessica Burciaga features as Foxx's love interest. The clip captures the range of emotions and drama the singer experiences after falling in love with a volatile woman.
When "Nothin' On You" reached #1 on the Hot 100, B.o.B became the first American act whose name is a palindrome to top the chart. The other two who did so prior to the Atlanta rapper were both Scandinavian groups - ABBA and A-Ha.
The TV show Cheers was nearly canceled after its first season, but the theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," was very popular. To satisfy viewer demand, the theme was made into a full song and released as a single.
