Robin Thicke Performs on ‘Today’ Concert Series

Robin Thicke

New York awoke to the sounds of Robin Thicke, who took over Rockefeller Plaza as part of the “Today” show’s Summer Concert Series. The R&B crooner, who still has the No. 1 single in the country, celebrated the release of his sixth album Blurred Lines by performing two songs.

With a gold mic in hand and shades covering his eyes, he delivered his record-breaking hit with his sexy backup dancers as the crowd sang along.

He also addressed the controversy surrounding the lyrics. “When we made the song we had nothing but the most respect for women,” he told Matt Lauer. “Sometimes the lyrics can get misconstrued when you’re just trying to put people on the dance floor and have a good time. But we had no idea it would stir this much controversy…. We only had the best intentions.”

He kept it going with Timbaland-produced “Take It Easy on Me,” which he dedicated to his critics.

Watch him rock the plaza with his lively set.

Robin Thicke Talks Weed, Sex, & Success with Howard Stern

Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke knows how to make the ladies sweat, but he was the one in the hot seat during his visit to SiriusXM’s “The Howard Stern Show” on Monday. On the eve of his album release, the R&B crooner spoke to the shock jock about having Alan Thicke as his father, his weed habit (“It’s my crutch”), and how his wife Paula Patton inspired “Blurred Lines.”

“‘Blurred Lines’ has that she’s a good girl, but she wants to be a bad girl. It’s very much about my wife,” said Thicke. “My wife is Mrs. Good Girl, but gradually over our marriage, I’ve turned her into a bad girl.”

He alluded to their naughty sexual escapades. “We’ve done just about everything,” he said.

But when asked if he’s brought another woman into the bedroom, Thicke stopped short. “Out of respect for her, we just won’t answer that one.”

He doesn’t expect to replicate the success of “Blurred Lines,” which broke the record for highest radio audience ever recorded. “Not scared yet because I know that it can’t possibly have this effect. Even if it’s No. 1 and sells a bunch of records, it can’t be the love story that this song has been where it’s crossed all formats and broke these records.”

Plus, he brought his sexy backup dancers to perform his No. 1 hit in the studio.

New Music Premiere: Robin Thicke – ‘Ain’t No Hat 4 That’

Robin Thicke

If you weren’t already sold, Robin Thicke gives us yet another reason to buy Blurred Lines. On “Ain’t No Hat 4 That,” the suave singer tears up the dance floor as he sings about a woman caught up in the superficial. The funky track, co-written by his father Alan Thicke, kicks off with an intro from his three-year-old son Julian.

“You got your cure for anxious/ You got your pill for bad/ But your fancy shoes and handbag/ Can’t help you when you’re sad/ ‘Cause there ain’t no hat for that,” sings Thicke on the instrument-heavy number.

Thicke’s sixth album Blurred Lines arrives July 30 featuring the No. 1 hit of the same name and contributions from Kendrick Lamar, Timbaland, will.i.am, and 2 Chainz. It is now available for pre-order on iTunes.

Rap-Up.com has your first listen to “Ain’t No Hat 4 That.”
