RCA RecordsJamie Foxx couldn’t be more proud of Chris Brown‘s transition into a first-time dad.
During an interview with E! News, Foxx recalls their history together. “I’ve known Chris since he was 15 years old and he would come to my house and kick it and party with my sister who has Down syndrome, and [he would] dance with her and people would ask me how I know Chris and I’ve known this kid since he was a pup,” Jamie shares.
The R&B singer adds that he’s impressed with how Brown has taken to the responsibility of raising his daughter, Royalty.
“I just felt like, you know, in our business you could’ve thrown money at it. And to see him take that step and really take care of his daughter… that is not to be overly commended because it’s what he’s supposed to do, but you know how this business can be,” Jamie says. “I thought that, for him, to see his smile now is just different to me and I hope he doesn’t mind me saying that. It was great to see that.”
Foxx recently teamed up with Brown for “You Changed Me,” the lead single from Jamie’s upcoming album Hollywood, arriving on May 18.
