Katy Perry is the new queen of the Hot 100. This week, her single “Roar” surpassed Robin Thicke’s 12-week reign of “Blurred Lines” to garner the No. 1 spot.
Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” may be the song of the summer, but some are saying that it’s not really his song. Namely, the family of Marvin Gaye.
“People say, ‘Hey why did you cut your hair after the video?’ It was because I had told myself I wouldn’t cut my hair until I heard my song on the radio.”
When Robin Thicke was recording “Blurred Lines” last year it’s doubtful he ever envisioned the song to be played with instruments you’d likely see in an elementary school classroom. But last night on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ this is exactly what happened.
When Robin Thicke stopped by Radio.com HQ to discuss his new album, ‘Blurred Lines (out this week), we bent his ear on sex, romance, pick-up lines and real-deal, full-fledged, forever love.
“With this album I decided just to make fun songs that everybody can sing along to and dance to,” he said. “I just want to write stuff that makes people feel good.”
With Thicke taking the lead, the pop song is almost unrecognizable. Which, this time around, isn’t a bad thing.
Robin Thicke is still riding high on the success of his first No. 1 “Blurred Lines, but he’s also looking to follow that triumph with his risqué new track “Give It 2 U,” which dropped earlier this week.
How does a man, who turned 40 in April and has been in the business since the mid-’90s, stay relevant after all these years? His recent collaborators sound off.
The album shares its title with Thicke’s latest single, which garnered him his first No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart as of this week and topped the charts in 27 other countries as well. In an interview with Radio.com this week, Thicke gave us a preview of the LP.
