Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines Album Releases Today
The single Blurred Lines has been at the top of the charts for 7 straight weeks in America alone, also topping the charts in 14 different countries as well. Today marks the the release of Robin Thicke's album by the same name.
With the lead single already selling over a million copies (2.4 million to be exact since July 3rd), including over 700,000 of those digitally, it's already become the singer's biggest hit. The last time Robin was on the Billboard Top 100 it was for his single "Lost Without You", which peaked at #14.
The new album boast several star-studded appearances that include major hip-hop acts like T.I., Kendrick Lamar & 2 Chainz and production from Pharrell & Will.I.Am. Despite the continued success of the lead single, the critics have been extremely harsh on the album going as far as saying "Thicke is trying to hard to be Marvin Gaye" and a lot worse.
I have always be a fan of the R&B crooner since I first heard Lost Without You, so I'm personally looking forward to hearing the entire album. If his 7 weeks at the top of the charts isn't enough to prove the critics wrong, Robin may find himself getting as much hate as Justin Bieber soon. It always seem to happen to the best.
