Robin Thicke Returns, Inks Indie Deal, & Debuts New Single ‘Testify’

Published: Wednesday 12th Dec 2018 by Sam

Robin Thicke returns and bares his truth on emotional single ‘Testify.’

Lyrically transparent, the crooner waxes honest about his the professional hardships he’s encountered in recent years, as well as the personal hurdles – which include a divorce from wife Paula Patton and the passing of his father.

Recorded at Thicke’s Malibu home (which burned down in the California wildfire), the singer said of the song:

“When I made this record I wanted to sing my whole truth and lead off the new album singing my ass off.”

Said LP, the follow-up to 2014’s ‘Paula,’ will be the star’s first for indie imprint EMPIRE Records (home to Tyga and most recently Iggy Azalea). Thicke was previously signed to Interscope.

Take a listen to ‘Testify’ below…

Sonically, the song is well-aligned with Thicke’s tried and true sound (see: pre ‘Blurred Lines’) and makes for an engaging listen given how raw he’s been lyrically.

Fans will be seeing and hearing a lot more from the five time Grammy nominee in the weeks and months ahead.

From January 2nd 2019, he’ll be starring as a celebrity panelist on new FOX singing competition on ‘The Masked Singer’.

Before then, Robin will be performing on New Years Eve Live in Times Square during Steve Harvey’s special – which airs on FOX December 31st at 8pm ET.

    Wow I actually like this track, he’s never not sounded good IMO, that Paula album was a DUD!!?

    I like it, but then I usually like Robin Thicke’s music. This song teases Tracks of My Tears but not enough for a lawsuit.
