The article presents information about several African American entertainers. Dana Owens, best known as Queen Latifah, has went from reigning as hiphop's original female superstar to being Oscar nominated years later for her excellent performance in the motion picture "Chicago." Like Queen Latifah, Oscar winner Jamie Foxx is another renaissance superstar whose creative range seems limitless. This week Foxx's critically lauded J Records album, "Unpredictable," shot to the top of Billboard's 200 album charts, dropping last week's number 1 set, Mary J. Blige's "The Breakthrough," to the number 2 slot.
