The album features several guest artists, including T.I., Lil Wayne, Ne-Yo, Kanye West, Fabolous, T-Pain, The-Dream, Lil' Kim and Marsha Ambrosius.

Background and composition
Intuition, as Foxx describes it, will focus on the needs and wants of the opposite sex.
"On my radio show I have this panel of beautiful women and they were talking about how men with a lot of money aren't all that. But if a guy has no money, that's no good either,” Foxx explained. "So I was thinking, What does a woman want? We go from there and build the story and the songs."
The album's lead single "Just Like Me" featuring T.I., was released on August 19, 2008. The song debuted at number 48 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, before it peaked at number 8. It also peaked at number 49 on the Billboard 100.
The album's third single "Blame It" featuring T-Pain, was released on January 26, 2009. In its first week, "Just Like Me", "Blame It" and "She Got Her Own" were charted on the top-ten in the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at numbers 8, 1, and 2, respectively.
While on the Conan O'Brien show, Foxx performed the remix to "Digital Girl" featuring Canadian rapper Drake, during the interview with MTV News, as he stated; it will be his fourth single from Intuition. The full studio version was leaked and officially released on June 19, 2009, which features guest appearances from Drake, adding Kanye West and The-Dream on this track.
The album debuted at number 3 on the US Billboard 200, selling 265,000 copies in the first week. The album became one of the Billboard 200's top ten albums within the first month after it was released. As of May 2010, Intuition has sold in the United States one million copies, and has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Intuition received mixed reviews from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from critics, the album received an average score of 56, which indicates "mixed or average reviews", based on 6 reviews. Sarah Rodman of The Boston Globe reviewed the album positively, stating: "Like many contemporary R&B albums, the cameos sometimes crowd the main attraction, but Foxx is wise enough to intuit when it suits him best to share the spotlight." Claire Lobenfeld of Vibe Magazine had a mixed review for the album, stating: "What is missing from Intuition is a balance between the party records and the slow jams. The division displays a lack of cohesiveness that separates the effort from being a great album into just a collection of potential singles."
Emily Heward of MusicOMH.com, however, was less impressed with the album, commenting: "[Intuition's songs are] lost amidst over-enthusiastic vocal effects" and that "it is hard to recognize the soulful voice that landed him his Oscar."
In May 2009, Foxx announced he was going on tour in the support of his third album Intuition. The 40-city tour kicked off on July 2 in Anaheim and ended in October.
