Thicke regains musical focus

Thicke regains musical focus

After his last fair-to-middling album, Robin Thicke is seeking a big hit with his new release, Blurred Lines.

The 10 songs (11 if you have the US edition), most of which are able chart-toppers, are being blasted through the speakers at boutiques and department stores this summer.

The title track, which features rapper T.I. and Pharrell, has been widely popular, including topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart for weeks. Many critics regard it as the Summer Jam of the year, but I think the album's Ooo La La is better, because of its danceability.

The album features guest vocals by prominent hip-hop artists such as Kendrick Lamar, 2Chainz and Will.i.am.

Most tracks, are perfect for calming one's nerves after a tough, tiring day. It's hard to resist the temptation to bob your head to Thicke's catchy beats and soothing vocals. The rap, which you don't expect to hear from a rhythm and blues artist, is another highlight, but some tracks sound disappointingly repetitive.

The album, which has inspired parody videos of the most popular tracks, has helped Thicke redeem himself musically. It leaves a pleasing mark on music lovers - be they R&B or rap fans. If you're a fresh starter, you will also find this album easy to listen to.
