Lest you think Justin Timberlake is the only purveyor of future-tinged blue-eyed soul these days, Robin Thicke is back to remind you that he’s been doing the too-cool crooning thing the whole time JT was MIA. Robin’s sixth album drops this summer, and he’s kicking things off with the fresh video for his infectious new song “Blurred Lines.”
Thicke enlisted T.I. and Pharrell for the track (with Pharrell getting credits for producing and co-writing it), and all three guys make it look like filming the video was an absolute joy. And this translates to the viewer: watching a pack of dudes ogle, dance with and groom a host of pretty ladies has never been more entertaining. Also, T.I. — who knew he could cut a rug like that?
By the way, we’re told the “X-rated version” of the video will be revealed next week. We’re assuming that means some of those strategically-positioned arms across the chest will drop to the sides.
