Unpredictable is Jamie Foxx's second studio release. It sold over 598,000 copies in its first week of release, the last week of December 2005, however was kept out of the #1 position by Mary J. Blige, whose album The Breakthrough sold 730,000 copies.
After debuting in its first week at No. 2, the record rose to the top of the Billboard 200. This achievement also made Foxx the fourth artist ever to have won an Academy Award for acting and to make a No. 1 album on the Billboard charts. The album charted in the UK upon its 2006 release there.
Four singles were released from the album, the title-track "Unpredictable", "DJ Play A Love Song", "Can I Take You Home" and "Extravaganza". The album has sold over 2 million units and is certified 2x Platinum.
