Robin Thicke "Ooo La La"

From the new album. This HAS to be the next single!

by Anonymousreply 12708/07/2013

That's a great song, OP...love it! I just downloaded his album, and this has to be his best. Thanks for posting that song!

by Anonymousreply 107/30/2013

the beat is catchy as hell and sounds like another recycled beat from the early 80s. I can't put my finger on it but I think I've heard the beat before from a song from that time period. Thicke is just a better, more talented version of Timberfake. Both rely on ripping off 70s and 80s r&b and disco acts. They try to imitate the singing style and beats. So unoriginal. I'm waiting for a new recording act to come along with a NEW sound. Anyone who thinks Thicke is amazing must have never listened to the 70s and 80s r&b/disco songs.

Listened to the whole Blurred Lines album on Youtube and will be downloading from iTunes. He is fantastic and SO much better than that poseur Timberlake.

This may sound weird, but Robin Thicke reminds me of a male version of the late, great Teena Marie. I hear a lot of similarities in both the music and the lyrics.

R9 I totally agree. She even had a song with the almost the same title.

Teena Marie (RIP) and Robin Thicke are really similar in terms of their abilities and their heartfelt respect of r&b, but I think Teena played more instruments.

Robin's voice on "Feel Good" is so smooth, that it melts like butter.

His new album "Blurred Lines" is getting raves from every music critic.

by Anonymousreply 2607/31/2013

From Newsday:

"With “Blurred Lines” (Interscope), Robin Thicke out-Justins Timberlake at every turn…His old-school soul references are better. His falsetto is finer. And when he goes for the raunchy club anthems, he really goes for them…As he did with the summer smash “Blurred Lines,” this album shows that Thicke is able to take the same building blocks — soulful influences, hot producers — and come up with something way cooler and more polished than his contemporaries."

by Anonymousreply 2707/31/2013

The song is alright--the switch out of falsetto doesn't really work. I'll say it's above average, but but that sadly doesn't mean it's good.

R22, Timberlake's album was made to finish his contract. I suspect he's not highly bothered by its performance, which has been quite strong if not of megahit proportions.

by Anonymousreply 2807/31/2013

I'm glad Timberfake's being outdone by Thicke but I don't like either's personality. They're both rip off recording acts who have no original bones in their body. Their "revival" of late 70s/early 80s beats and sounds is so lazy, even if it's catchy.

Before his days performing as a singer-songwriter, Robin had written "Love Is on My Side" on Brandy's eponymous album, 3T's (Michael and Janet's nephews) "Sexual Attention" on their debut album and he collaborated with Jordan Knight, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis on several songs in Knight's 1999 album JORDAN KNIGHT. He also co-wrote the songs "When You Put Your Hands on Me" for Christina Aguilera's debut album and "No Tears on My Pillow" for Mýa's sophomore release, FEAR OF FLYING. In 1999, he co-wrote the song "Fall Again" with Walter Afanasieff, which used to be a track in Michael Jackson's 2001 album INVINCIBLE, but it failed to be presented as a completed song. As an artist, he recorded and performed solely under his surname, Thicke

He co-wrote the gorgeous "Seperate Ways" with his father Alan and brother Brendan for Jordan Knight's debut album

Seriously people go back and listen to the r&b/disco of the late 70s and early 80s. The original cannot be trumped. Thicke is for all you white gays and girls who haven't listened to the originators 30-35 years ago. He does a decent impersonation but again, he's not bringing anything NEW.

by Anonymousreply 5707/31/2013

The album has had surprisingly quiet buzz considering how ubiquitous the single is. He was wise to name it after the single.

I was gonna buy it right away but that big dick song put me off. The pun in the video was one thing, but that is nasty.

R67 exactly. Thicke is a decent singer with catchy beats but he's not doing anything special. He's simply recycling beats and vocal styles from 30-35 years ago. There are also plenty of really talented r&b vocalists out there but middle America doesn't listen to them because they're black.

What's going on with that? The album seems to have been delayed a little in the US. It was #1 in the UK 2 weeks ago. The single was also, oddly, straight to #1 in the UK before the US.

It's not #1 now, Selena Gomez is but I guess he'll top the charts after her. Blurred Lines the single looks unstoppable at the top... guess you'll have to wait till summer is over. And I STILL love it and play it all the time, surprised I haven't burn this out like I did early on with "Get Lucky".

Robin loves the gays! Here's an interview he did several years ago for THE ADVOCATE:

[italic]Robin Thicke’s 2007 single “Lost Without U” made him the first male Caucasian artist to top Billboard’s R&B/hip-hop chart since George Michael’s “One More Try” in 1988, but that’s just the tip of Thicke’s tight connection with the gay community. Currently promoting his fourth album, Sex Therapy, as the opening act on Alicia Keys’s Freedom Tour (he makes a quick detour to Miami Gardens, Fla., on March 20 for the fifth annual Jazz in the Gardens music festival), the 33-year-old neo-soul singer-songwriter explains why he’ll happily ruin dinner to defend his gay friends-even those hip-hop chest-thumpers still in the closet.

The Advocate: How conscious are you of your gay fan base? Because although babies aren’t technically made during our process, we also enjoy baby-making music.

Robin Thicke: Well, maybe I’m inspiring some adoptions. [Laughs] As long as my music promotes love and intimacy, it’s all good. You never really know who likes you until someone comes up and says they like your music, but I’m always surprised when anyone likes it.

TA: You’ve previously toured with Jennifer Hudson and Beyoncé, both artists with huge gay followings. Are we a good audience?

RT: Oh, absolutely. Who dances with more love and passion than the gay audience? They’re so much fun.

TA: Gay blogs can be vicious, but they generally have very sweet things to say about you.

RT: I know, and I’m very thankful, honored, and blessed. Every once in a while I’ll hear that Perez has said nice things about me, but I don’t think my people would send it to me if he ever said anything bad.

TA: How does it feel to be an object of lust for some gay men?

RT: It’s absolutely flattering, without question. I’m very vain, so I’ll take lust from wherever it comes.

TA: Your father, Alan Thicke, is an actor best known as Jason Seaver on Growing Pains, and your mother, Gloria Loring, is an actress-singer best known as Liz Chandler on Days of Our Lives. Growing up with both parents in the entertainment industry, what was your earliest exposure to gay people?

RT: My father’s agent was gay, and he was one of the nicest people I’ve ever met in my life. Probably from the time I was 7 or 8 years old, he was there every day, hanging out at the house and on my dad’s set. He was a wonderful man, so that was a great influence for me right from the beginning. Some of my mom’s best friends were also gay. When the AIDS epidemic hit in the ’80s, my mom lost one of her very best friends, who was also a close friend of the family. Even though I was very young, I had to understand what that was all about and why he passed. It’s a lot for a 10-year-old boy to try to figure out, but I have a very open heart because of those circumstances.[/italic]

by Anonymousreply 9008/01/2013

PT: 2

[italic]The Advocate: Your first son is due this May. How do you plan to instill in him those same values of love and acceptance?

Robin Thicke: That’s easy. Love is easy to instill; it’s just hard to practice. We can all lose our tempers and our focus when our insecurities get the best of us, but it’s easy to preach and teach love and open-mindedness.

TA: Who’s your best gay friend?

RT: Probably somebody who won’t admit it. [Laughs] That’s the catch-22 of the hip-hop and R&B music world: There’s so much bravado and chest-thumping, you can’t help but be afraid to come out and be yourself. I actually have a couple friends in that world I’m wondering about right now.

TA: How can the homophobia in that world be diminished?

RT: I really don’t know. It’s this religion thing that’s so mind-boggling. Religion is an epidemic, you know what I mean? How do you justify what people have in their minds because of a book that they read — that your life has to be a certain way or you’re damned? It’s very difficult to understand how some people can be so open-minded in some realms but so closed off in others.

TA: How do you personally handle the homophobia you encounter?

RT: I’ve always been the guy at the table who will fight these people until the bitter end. I’m a fighter — maybe too much sometimes. Sometimes I ruin dinner.

TA: You’re married to black actress Paula Patton, which would’ve also been illegal in many states not all that long ago. What are your thoughts on gay marriage?

RT: When I was growing up and had my first apartment, my very next-door neighbors were a gay couple named Stan and Wayne. They were two of the nicest people I’ve ever met in my life, and they’re still friends of mine to this day. I think of them not being able to get married because of some law — and they’ve been together for 25-plus years — and there’s just nothing right about that. Why can’t they profess their love to the world? Why can’t they have the same legal tax credits and all those other things that everybody else gets to have? There’s a lot about all that that doesn’t make sense to me, but it’s hard to reason with people who get all caught up in their Bibles.

TA: Thanks to her role as lesbian teacher Ms. Rain in Precious — not to mention her next film, Just Wright, with Queen Latifah and Pam Grier — Paula is quickly becoming an icon in the lesbian community. Are you loving it?

RT: Oh, yes, and we’re both so grateful. My wife has been my teacher of open-mindedness since I met her. If I hadn’t met her, I would probably be more of a cocky jerk, but she’s always reminded me of the struggles that other people are going through, which has made me a better person. She’s got an enormous heart.

TA: Your current single, “Sex Therapy,” samples “It’s My Party” by out lesbian Lesley Gore. Are you trying to cultivate more lesbian fans yourself?

RT: She’s a lesbian? Oh, I had no idea! How cool is that? Well, there you go. See, subliminally I’m tapping into my lesbian side. I was born a lesbian, so all that makes sense.

TA: With which openly gay artist would you most like to collaborate?

RT: I love Adam Lambert — he’s great, man, and really exciting. But I don’t really reach out for too many collaborations except with producers, rappers, or soul singers like Faith Evans or Mary J. Blige.

TA: You made an exception, of course, when you collaborated with Leighton Meester on her debut single, “Somebody to Love.” Are you a Gossip Girl fan?

RT: I enjoyed the show once I checked it out, but I actually liked her from the Entourage episodes she was on a few years ago. I thought she was very fiery, sexy, and cool.[/italic]

TA: Maybe it’s time to one-up him.

[quote]Genetics are weird. African appearance usually recedes after just two generations of intermingling. After Donna Summer died, there was a pic posted of one of her daughters (whose father was white) and the daughter's kids (who have a white father) and the kids looked 100% white. You would never know they had black ancestry that was just two generations old.

Yeah, but Donna's daughters all happen to be beautiful too.

What is "gold (but not blond)" hair?

r110, I have known many mixed (black/white) people in my life, and they have all referred to themselves as mulatto. As a white person, I would be uncomfortable using this word, but mixed-race people use it all the time.

R114, Still trying to understand, R109's post...so 1875!

I've never liked that poseur Timberlake, and I'm also wondering if he's spitting nails right now because he was such hot shit a few months ago, and now Robin Thicke has swooped in and totally stolen his thunder. Nobody's talking about Justin at the moment, Thicke the THE big thing in music right now.

Back to Robin Thicke kicking Timberlake's ass please.

Donna's daughter Mimi with the grandkids. You would never know those kids had a black grandmother.

[quote]How much is Timberlake hating Thicke right now?

And adding insult to injury, when Robin was on Howard Stern recently, Howard asked him if he was pissed that JT basically stole his nude women idea for his own new video. Robin basically said no, and that he feels imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

I'm Robin fan, but I kinda love how he stole TImberlake's look and sound and kicked TImberlake's ass into nowheresvile. And THEN Justin tried to basically become a Robin Thicke clone with the straightened hair, etc. Hilarious. I bet Robin will start acting and get big roles. Or at least good reviews.

R121, Robin's been doing the dapper suit-n-tie thing since at least 2005, when JT was still walking around with a Caesar haircut and a scruffy beard.

I definitely think that Robin will become a headliner now with bigger venues. They need to release "Pressure" after "Ooo La La". It's the shit.

R102, That can work inversely as well. Look at Sasha and Malia. They are 1/4 white, but nobody would guess it.

Very classy comment.

I'm loving his new song, The Good Life...very soulfully done!

r121. You must be a new fan if you think Thicke stole Timberlake's look and sound. He's been doing it for nearly 10 years performing to an R&B niche audience and it was Justin who stole Robin's look and sound for his new album.
