Following up the (just about) consensus Song Of The Summer in “Blurred Lines” is no easy task, but Robin Thicke seems up to the task with “Give It 2 U.” The poppy, catchy-as-shit hook is supplemented spectacularly by 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar, who absolutely kills his verse. The music video is nothing to sneeze at either, featuring three HBCU step teams performing parade-style in a football stadium with… an ass float. Make sure you throw this on tonight and enjoy your time back at school before classes start, I know I will.
Last month it was Barack Obama singing “Get Lucky”, and this month it’s Bill Clinton singing Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.” This shit is too funny. The best part of it all comes in right after the 1:00 mark when Bill chants “I know you want it” and it cuts to Joe Biden slowly noddin his head like “mmmmhm.” He wants it. Great work again, baracksdubs.
Haven’t done a Mashup Monday in a hot minute, but the time has come, my friends! Back on my grind, and in need of some good party tunes, so why not turn to mashups, naw mean? Hit the jump for a whole list of the best mashups I could get my hands on.
1. Nate Belasco – Black Skinhead x Elephant (Kanye West x Tame Impala)
2. Ricky Cervantes – Forever This Young (Avicii & Aloe Blacc x The Knocks x TheFatRat)
3. DJ BAHLER – Summer Luv (The Knife x Ashanti x Fat Joe)
I was about to say the same thing dude from Pigeons and Planes said…which was something along the lines of Robin Thicke’s voice is too airy for this beat. But then the song went on, and Robin’s voice became a bit more Timberlake-ish…meaning a bit stronger and less airy. And I was digging it! Cudi’s verse is dope too-sometimes I criticize his rapping skills because it’s hard to hear anything rhyming, but you can hear it in this one. Nice work, boys.

“Sex Therapy” – Robin Thicke
Beware. If you like R&B, and perhaps sexy men, you just might melt when you hear this song by Robin Thicke, produced by Polow Da Don. Once again, Polow delivers with his production. The little twinkling high notes on the piano go perfectly with Robin’s high voice. Such a gentle song.
Sorry gentlemen, you’re absolutely allowed to love this song too. It’s damn good R&B.
