Robin Thicke Reveals ‘Paula’ Album Cover, Tracklisting

Paula

With two weeks to go, Robin Thicke has unveiled the cover and tracklisting for his seventh album Paula. The dark artwork shows the pensive singer with his head down and washed in red, yellow, and green.

The follow-up to last year’s chart-topper Blurred Lines is dedicated to his estranged wife Paula Patton. The couple, who’s been married for nine years and have a four-year-old son together, announced their separation in February, and Thicke has been trying for months to mend their relationship.

All 14 tracks were written and produced by Thicke with titles inspired by his wife including “You’re My Fantasy,” “Forever Love,” and the lead single “Get Her Back.”

“We got a lot to talk about on that subject,” Thicke told Steve Harvey. “I gotta impress her somehow. The truth shall set you free.”

The Game Brings the Horror in ‘Bigger Than Me’ Video

The Game

The Game is out for blood. Earlier in the week, the Compton rapper dropped his scathing single “Bigger Than Me,” and now he’s readying the terrorizing video, with scenes straight out of a horror flick.

Directed by Matt Alonzo, the dark and gory clip was shot at a historic mansion in South Los Angeles and features creepy elements including a voodoo witch.

In the terrifying scenes, Game wields a chainsaw and sits in a throne surrounded by a pack of wolves. He also stares at a photo of Tupac, while blood drips from the walls.

Game takes aim at the new wave of rappers on the vicious track. “I came in with ‘Ye, Jeezy, and boss ass ni**as / Your freshmen cover a whole bunch of soft ass ni**as / Tampon lyricists evacuate the premises,” he spits.

The song is the first single off his compilation Blood Money La Familia, scheduled for release on September 16.

Go behind the scenes of his house of horror.
