Blurred Lines has proven a career changer for Duets judge Robin Thicke, transforming him from mediocre musician to the ultimate chart topper. But will Robin’s follow-up single experience the same level of success? Or will it fall victim to the dreaded sophomore slump?
Can the world handle a little more Robin Thicke? We’re about to find out, for the singer recently released another single from his upcoming Blurred Lines album. The follow-up, entitled Give It 2 U, holds a lot in common with its predecessor, including a catchy beat and some not-so-subtle sexual innuendo. And as with Blurred Lines, there were plenty of big names involved in its production. These include a short verse from Kendrick Lamar, the producing talents of mastermind Dr. Luke, and assistance from will.i.am in the form of co-writing.
So far, the response to Give It 2 U has been every bit as positive as what was displayed for Blurred Lines earlier this year. But despite kind words from the critics, Robin Thicke was most curious as to how his fans were enjoying the new track. He took to Twitter to ask the big question: “How’s everyone liking #GiveIt2U?” Of course, the fans were even more enthusiastic than the critics, offering effusive praise and predictions for the upcoming awesomeness that will be the Blurred Lines album.
If you haven’t heard Give It 2 U just yet, it’s time you check it out! We’ve posted the track below for your listening pleasure. When you’re done, feel free to tell us what you think — and whether it comes even close to competing with Blurred Lines!
