Jamie Foxx makes musical return to celebrate success of Netflix’s ‘Day Shift’


Jamie Foxx and his Day Shift co-star Dave Franco have come together for some music. Their song “Bud” — which pays homage to Foxx’s character, Bud Jablonski — dropped on Thursday in celebration of their Netflix film’s success. A video supporting the single has also been released.

“It’s here!!! Thanks to the fans,” Jamie wrote on Twitter. “#dayshift is so big we made a video for the theme song.” The visual captures the two as they vampire hunt, enjoy wild Jeep rides and flaunt their moves to the EDM-inspired beat. Foxx — who has had success as a singer — is seen displaying his rap skills this time around.

Day Shift premiered on August 12 and follows Foxx’s Bud, a vampire hunter who takes on a job as a pool cleaner to cover up his real gig and provide for his daughter. The film debuted at #1 and as of Foxx’s post was “still #1 on @netflix.”

Jamie’s last album, Hollywood: A Story of a Dozen Roses, came out in May 2015.
