Robin Thicke          

American R&B and Soul Singer-Songwriter Known for the Hit "Blurred Lines"

Born on March 10, 1977, in Los Angeles, California, Robin Thicke followed in the tradition of his entertainment parents (Gloria Loring and Alan Thicke) and pursued a singing career. He had a major hit with "Lost Without U" from his 2006 platinum album The Evolution of Robin Thicke, and he also made it big with the summer hit of 2013, "Blurred Lines."

Thicke was signed to a production company by soul/adult contemporary artist Brian McKnight and, via that connection, would work with Interscope Records, going on to craft hits for a number of top recording artists. By his 20s, Thicke had decided that he wanted to enter the world of performance as well, and was subsequently mentored by Andre Harrell.

Backed by executive Jimmy Iovine, Thicke eventually released 2003's Beautiful World. The album featured "When I Get You Alone," which sampled the Walter Murphy disco hit "A Fifth of Beethoven" from the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. Thicke then released the 2006 album The Evolution of Robin Thicke, which featured the tender "Lost Without U." The hit was penned by Thicke himself and held the No. 1 spot on Billboard's R&B/hip-hop charts for weeks. Evolution, which went to No. 5 on Billboard's main albums chart and earned platinum status, also featured collaborations with songstress Faith Evans and rapper Lil Wayne.

Thicke came back in 2008 with the album Something Else, with the lead single "Magic" reaching the Top 10 on the R&B/hip-hop charts. The following year, Thicke released his fourth album, Sex Therapy, earning another No. 1 R&B spot with the smoldering title track. In December 2011, he put forth Love After War.

Working in TV as well, Thicke starred in 2012 as one of the mentors on the ABC music competition "Duets." The following year, he starred on the BET reality show "Real Husbands of Hollywood." Soon after, he was cast in the indie drama "Abby in the Summer."

In the spring of 2013, Thicke released an unrated version of the video for his single "Blurred Lines," featuring Pharrell Williams (who produced the track) and T.I., with a sample of Gaye's beloved dance romp "Got to Give It Up."
