Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" Rockets to the Top of the Pop Songs Charts
"Blurred Lines" from artist Robin Thicke is on it's way to becoming the #1 song on many Top 40 Pop stations across the country. No small feat in light of the dominance maintained by quasi-Hip Hop group Macklemore and Ryan Lewis over the last few months. The song features performances by artists T.I. and Pharrell. The song is Thicke's attempt at a more "pop" or mainstream sound than any of his previous work. In addition to having a catchy summer feel, the song's controversial lyrics and explicit video has generated buzz. Robin Thicke is the son of actor Alan Thicke, who starred in the late 80's/early 90's TV comedy "Growing Pains" on ABC and is husband of actress Paula Patton.
Here is a [CLEAN] version of the song performed on NBC's The Voice.
The Daily Beast: "Here’s a sure-fire way to get the No. 1 record in the country: engineer a fake controversy by making an unrated version of your video featuring strutting, mostly naked supermodels. That’s the route blue-eyed crooner Robin Thicke took with his single “Blurred Lines,” which sits atop the Billboard charts this week, ending Macklemore’s long reign."
