Jamie Foxx‘s Hollywood: A Story Of A Dozen Roses entered the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart at the Number 1 spot. The project sold over 30,000 copies in its debut week, which also helped the album reach Number 10 on the Billboard 200. Hollywood: A Story Of A Dozen Roses is led by the hit single “You Changed Me” featuring Chris Brown, which has sold over 800,000 digital copies.

Along with Chris Brown and Kid Ink, Foxx’s chart-topping album also features guest appearances from Wale, Pharrell Williams, and Fabolous. Earlier this year, the R&B singer released the single “Pretty Thing” on Soundcloud. The DJ Mustard-produced song does not appear on the official album, but it is available on the Hollywood: A Story Of A Dozen Roses deluxe version.
