Want to know how Robin Thicke sets the mood? Check out the blue eyed soul singer’s personal playlist of favorite R&B/Soul songs alongside select tracks with featured commentary from his latest album Love After War.
Born in Los Angeles, Robin taught himself to play piano at the age of 12 and by 16 was writing and producing songs for artists like Brandy, Color Me Badd, and Brian McKnight. Throughout the span of his career, Robin has written and produced songs on over 20 gold and platinum albums including Michael Jackson, Marc Anthony, Pink, Christina Aguilera and others.
Robin’s fifth studio album, Love After War is his most raw and honest body of work yet. This was an album born out of a desire to be the uncompromising, idealistic artist he was as a boy, married with the weight of being a man with responsibilities and the scars of the past. Love After War and songs you’ll discover within it, like “An Angel on Each Arm”, “I’m An Animal”, “Never Give Up”, “Cloud 9″, “Pretty Lil’ Heart” and “Tears On My Tuxedo” need no explanation: they speak for themselves. The reasons and decisions that lead him to write his songs are not important; what matters most is how they make the listener feel. Robin is as faithful to his fans as they are to him. His ultimate desire is to entertain the listener… to move them… to inspire them… to make them love more.
