Robin Thicke - Something Else Album Review

Something Else is the third studio album by American R&B singer Robin Thicke. Continuing with the style that shaped 2006’s ‘The Evolution Of Robin Thicke‘, smooth and sexy soul presides here over classic R&B and pop. Sophisticated and sensual, this record will enthrall fans and will highlight Thicke’s unique talent on a bigger scale.

The album was released on September 30, 2008 and it debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 selling 136,944 copies the first week. It features a guest appearance by Lil Wayne.

Robin Thicke is a true artist that pours his heart & soul into his music, he is a real talent and a talented composer. If you’re a fan of real R&B, put aside all of the stereotypical musical categorizations and just enjoy this music for what it is, pure and simple, with a whole lotta soul! Thicke’s got that magic!

“It was like everyone was saying the same things, worried about the same things and I just felt we needed something different right now. I asked myself do I have a light? What is that light? How can I spread it, share it and turn it into a Puff Daddy white linen Miami Beach party?

On the last album I wanted to let people into my walk of life and connect my life to them and this album is more about involving great minds, hearts and spirits around me. When I started writing songs I was already embracing people and now I just wanted to dance and laugh with them”. Robin Thicke
