Robin Thicke

I got this CD for Christmas, but am just now getting a chance to listen to it. Why you ask? Well, mainly I listen to music in the car and, of course, I usually have my little guy with me, and this CD is so not for small ears. You should’ve heard my stuttering explanation of what ‘Sexual Healing’ is. I have no intention of going the same route with ‘Sex Therapy.’ I finally had to hide my copy of Big Spankable Asses because he kept pointing to it and giggling. (Toldja I should never have taught that boy to read.) BTW, I hate this freaking CD’s cover, I have no idea what’s supposed to be going on, but it looks like a sleazy porn mag.

I like the CD, especially the last half which is kinda loungey. There’s nothing on it that I like as much as ‘Lost Without You,’ but I’ve only listened once. I wish he hadn’t done so many songs with rappers, but I know that’s almost a requirement. Especially Jay-z. I don’t like or listen to hip-hop and even I can tell that man has absolutely no flow. It’s a sad commentary on the state of hip-hop that such a untalented hack managed to make millions.

The other day I saw his dad on one of the morning shows and he was bragging about how Robin’s CD is number one on the urban charts. He went on to say that Robin wasn’t born black or urban, but that he converted and he really appreciates the way he was accepted into the community. Yeah, that’s funny.

  1. I see what you mean about the CD cover. I just can’t quite figure out what it’s suppose to mean. In any event, I find it interesting that Alan Thicke made it a point to say that Robin wasn’t “born black or urban”. So what’s he saying here? That Robin only sings “black” music? I’m black, and I love all kinds of music. My MP3 player is loaded with an eclectic mix of old school R&B, rock, pop, easy listening, metal, and even country (gotta love Garth Brooks). 🙂

    Like you, I don’t understand the fascination with Jay Z, and I have yet to jump on that bandwagon, but I’ve noticed that whenever his moniker is mentioned, many people get really excited for some reason. Again, I don’t get it, but then again maybe I’m just not very hip. 😉

  2. I’ve seen worse CD covers, I’m never that worried about the cover I’m more worried about what I’m about to listen to and was it worth my money. I’m not buying the CD cover, just the CD. So in this case, the CD was worth my money. Now, I personally think ‘The Evolution of Robin Thicke’ was better but I ain’t complaining I love hearing his voice, it’s smooth and sexy and he’s smooth and sexy too. I don’t have anything against his hip-hop collabos, tha’s standard in r&b music today and I happen to like hip-hop not all of it but I like anything I can dance too.
    Alan Thcke is from Canada, so I’ll just let it go at that. It’s more than obvious Robin is neither black or urban, duh? But it sure is cute to watch him and Paul Patton together, they make an adorable couple and can’t wait to see their little Julian Fuego.
