Spin Cycle: Robin Thicke's "Love After War"

Spin Cycle: Robin Thicke’s “Love After War”

Robin Thicke has to be the most unlikely R&B star of all time. His mom is a former soap star. His dad is Jason Fucking Seaver. Irregardless of his stardom, what’s proven a bit more interesting to me is how someone who seemed to be bringing a quirky, fresh attitude to pop ‘n b turned so conventional over the course of his career.  I was what you might call an “early adopter” of Robin. Back in the summer of 2002, […]

The Singles Bar: “Love After War” by Robin Thicke

Now, this is more like it. Following the not-so-great teaser track “I’m An Animal” , Robin Thicke has returned to set things straight with the title track to his upcoming fifth album, Love After War.

Popblerd!’s 2011 Grammy Preview: R&B

It’s the sooooooul train! Kinda. Did you know that the Best R&B Album category was not made official until the mid-Nineties? Think of all the great classic soul albums of the past, from What’s Going On and Superfly to Bobby Brown’s Don’t Be Cruel and Mary J.’s What’s the 411?. None of ’em ever had an opportunity to win a Best R&B album Grammy because the category didn’t exist! Not that the National Arts of Recording Arts & Sciences has […]
