Robin Thicke To Release New Album ‘Paula’ On July 1st

When art imitates life.

While many artists claim to sprinkle real life narratives in their music, Robin Thicke is going the literal route.

The singer’s reps confirmed this week that his new album has been christened ‘Paula’ – after estranged wife Paula Patton.

Together for over 20 years, nine of which have been in a married capacity, the couple announced their separation this year – with Thicke publicly shouldering the “blame” and launching a campaign to ‘Get Her Back’. In line with his new literal approach, the latter is the actual title of the crooner’s recent single; one that garnered headlines aplenty following a live performance at the Billboard Music Awards back in May.

Still pushing the personal agenda, it appears the ‘Blurred Lines’ belter is gearing up to unleash the LP sooner than expected.

Taking to Twitter moments ago, he posted the following image…

So, ‘Paula’ will arrive in an album capacity on July 1st.

Interesting. Perhaps the tabloid interest is what Team Thicke expect to carry the project upon launch. Because, with such a limited lead-in window, it’s a daring strategy to say the least.

We’re nether here nor there as to the validity of the concept (see: getting wife back). We just hope Robin has cooked up solid enough material, as beyond his marriage, his next big hurdle will be maintaining the career momentum and attention ‘Blurred Lines’ gifted him.

Sidenote: Having already drawn comparisons to Marvin Gaye (in both a positive and plagiarising capacity), this move will inevitably reignite such discussion. Why? Well, Gaye famously named one of his album’s ‘Here, My Dear’ – which quite explicitly detailed his divorce from Berry Gordy’s daughter Anna. Granted the narratives are at the opposite ends of the love spectrum (see: desire to reunite /desire to diss), the approach does feel…familiar.

Your thoughts?

    It’ll “flop”, but Robin is everything Justin Timberlake tries so hard to be. Robin is a natural, JT is an imitation.

    Awww Robin. You cheat and now you want her back? ‘How Many Times’ does a woman have to tell you that you will miss her when she is gone? When a woman is fed up, she’s fed up. #ByeFelicia

    Wow, would you look at that. I see Robin is coming for that controversy R&B sales. Do I see a million in a week come July 1st? Lol! But all jokes aside, this time last year, Robin was on top of the world with Blurred Lines (which is now one of the biggest singles of all time btw) and now here he appearing to grovel in order to get his wife back. He clearly wasn’t thinking of the consequences when he repeatedly embarrassed her by posing and partying with other other. Basically, cheating on her. Now he wants her back. I believe in owning up to ones mistakes because marriage is sacred but all this seems attention seeking. The actions he does behind the scenes to make things right for Paula are more important than these public gestures of chivalry. She stuck by him through it all from when he was a struggling hippie to when he finally gained mainstream success with The Evolution of Robin Thicke. Whatever the outcome is, I wish them the best because they have a really young child and it’ll be sad if he has to grow up with divorced parents.
