Robin Thicke was back to his daddy duties as he hung out with his 3-year-old son Julian! The two were seen grocery shopping in Beverly Hills on Monday.
With the summer only just beginning, the 36-year-old already has a chart-topper with his song “Blurred Lines” and he will probably soon have another with his newest single, “Give It 2 U.” The song features rapper Kendrick Lamar and includes some controversial lyrics that will definitely have critics talking.
The single includes lines such as: “I got this for you/ a little Thicke for you/ a big kiss for you/ I got a hit for you/ big dick for you/ let me give it to you.” These are not lyrics we’re used to from Robin Thicke! “Blurred Lines” was deemed ”rapey” by critics and the singer himself acknowledged that the song is degrading to women.
During an interview with GQ, he said:
What a pleasure it is to degrade a woman.I’ve never gotten to do that before. I’ve always respected women. So we wanted to turn it over on its head and make people go, ‘Women and their bodies are beautiful. Men are always gonna want to follow them around.’
The video for “Blurred Line” features Thicke, T.I., and Pharrell Williams surrounded by topless models.
His album is set to drop July 30th, but see below to listen to “Give It 2 U.”
