Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke is a Grammy Award winning American R&B and soul singer, songwriter, musician, composer, and occasional actor. He is sometimes billed as just Thicke - which so doesn't work as a name in the UK.

Musically he is in a simliar mould to Justin Timberlake when he is at his most R&B and has recently been working with The Neptunes' Pharrell Williams. So far he has remained relatively unknown in the UK despite some international success elsewhere and platinum sales in the US.

American Idol runner-up Blake Lewis covered Robin Thicke's When I Get You Alone to great effect in the semi-final of the show.

Original having 'trademark' long-hair Robin has cleaned up his act and is currently sporting a lustrous loose quiff and some facial manscaping, which he is probably why I noticed him ... musically, he seems promising if somewhat unrelentingly heterosexual and there is certainly no great surplus of male solo stars at the moment so watch this space.
