Of course, you recognize Robin Thicke as a five-time GRAMMY®Award nominee, diamond-selling performer, actor, entrepreneur, and philanthropist—among many other things. He can sum up his identity in the most succinct and straightforward manner possible as “a singer, songwriter, and father forever.”
Since the launch of his solo career in 2003 after writing for everyone from Christina Aguilera to P!nk, he quietly emerged as one of R&B’s most identifiable, irresistible, and inimitable talents. Notching multiple gold and platinum certifications and consecutive Top 5 bows on theBillboard Top 200, he ascended to a commercial and creative high watermark on his 2013 sixth album, Blurred Lines. Not only did Blurred Lines crash the Billboard Top 200 at #1, but it also produced the RIAA Diamond-certified title single Blurred Lines [feat. T.I. & Pharrell].
The song made history, clutching #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 12 weeks. In the aftermath, he became “the first artist to simultaneously occupy #1 on the Hot 100 and Top 200 since 2012” and entered rarified air among 17 other acts to accomplish the same feat in the previous decade. Not to mention, it scored “the highest audience ever recorded”and captured #1 on five radio charts simultaneously. Between sold out shows, he collaborated with everyone from Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne to Nas and Kendrick Lamar. In 2019, he embraced newfound strength. Re-energized and inspired, Robin hit the ground running with a position as a panelist on the hit show The Masked Singer and a bevy of new music ignited by the single That’s What Love Can Do.
