Robin Thicke Returns To The Scene With A Heart-Warming Track “Testify”
Robin Thicke returns to the smooth music scene with his latest release “Testify.” It’s been nearly five years since his hit song “Blurred Lines” featuring T.I. and Pharrell Williams crushed the internet and radio alike. Now with the single launched Dec. 12th, the Canadian-American singer-songwriter has opened up about the period of turmoil that’s fueled his return.
As the title would suggest, the song is a confessional love song, and according to sources produced by his own imprint called Thicke Music. The single upholds his gentle yet soulful singing as well as his versatility. “Testify” offers a mellow, stripped down acoustic ode to facing challenges and overcoming them as well as love and loyalty.
Thicke was set to release an album years before, however, during that time he was blindsided by the loss of his father. As expected, his father’s passing had a shocking effect on the artist and made him rethink his album and change up his production. He told Zane Lowe of Beats 1’s radio show his father’s passing “ratted my soul.” Not only was that a blow to his heart, but his Malibu home was also demolished by the recent fires in California as he was creating “Testify.”
Thicke confirms his high hopes for his upcoming album and overall outlook on life with the following statement:
I think sometimes tragedy makes you count your blessings. So the album will hopefully be littered with some spirituality and some finding yourself. But it also is about let’s celebrate all this greatness we have around us.
Thicke has a quiet reputation in the music industry. His past track record includes collaborating with other A-Level artists like Christina Aguilera, Nicki Minaj, Pharrell Williams, Jennifer Hudson, and many more. His R&B singles like “Lost Without U,” “Sex Therapy,” and “Magic” were a global favorite along with “Blurred Lines,” that reached #1 spot on the US Billboard Hot 100.
After a rollercoaster of a year, 2019 looks promising with a completion of his upcoming new album with deeper personal meanings. Stay up to date with more details and news by clicking here.
