Robin Thicke is an R&B music artist who taught himself to play piano at the age of 12 and by 16 was writing and producing songs for artists like Brandy, Color Me Badd, and Brian McKnight. By the age of 21, he had written and produced songs on over 20 gold and platinum albums including Michael Jackson, Marc Anthony, Pink, Christina Aguilera and others.

One year later he signed with Jimmy Iovine and Interscope Records. Soon after he met Andre Harrell (former CEO of Uptown Records and mentor to Mary J. Blige, Sean "Puffy" Combs and countless others). It didn't take much time for Robin to realize he found the creative partner he needed to make "A Beautiful World," his critically acclaimed debut album released in 2003 under the name "Thicke." 

Thicke enjoyed moderate success with the cult hits 'When I Get You Alone" and "The Stupid Things." Despite this, it failed to live up to Robin's expectations. Disappointed by the lack of sales but inspired by his peers appreciation, he wrote and produced songs for Usher's Grammy winning album "Confessions," Lil' Wayne's "The Carter 2," and Mary J Blige.

It was during these challenging times as an artist that Robin began writing soul-searching, gut-wrenching songs about faith, hope and love. These songs became his breakthrough second release, 2006's "The Evolution of Robin Thicke." Now on the way to double platinum status, Evolution's mega hit "Lost Without U" became the #1 most played song in Urban Adult Contemporary BDS and topped four Billboard charts simultaneously:  #1 R&B /Hip Hop album, #1 Hot R&B / Hip Hop song, #1 Hot R&B Hip Hop Airplay, and #1 Hot Adult R&B Airplay. Robin established himself as one of the most respected singer-songwriters in soul and R&B music today. In the summer of 2007 he toured with Beyoncé and appeared on Oprah twice.

The year 2007 concluded with the VH1 Soul/Vibe award for Best Breakthrough Artist and nominations from BET (Best Male R&B and Viewer's Choice), Soul Train (Best R&B Soul Album, Male), MTV VMA (Male Artist of the Year), MOBO (Best Song, "Lost Without U"), the American Music Awards (Favorite Breakthrough Artist) and was named ASCAP's (Song of the Year, "Lost Without You").

The award-winning multiplatinum superstar returned to center stage in 2008 with "Something Else," a joyful and modern tribute to the '70s soul and pop records that have inspired an extraordinary career. Revered by critics as one of the best soul albums in years, this '70s-inspired album dealt with racism, poverty, and love in the hits "Dreamworld," "Magic," and "The Sweetest Love." The album is aptly titled. Debuting at #3 on The Billboard 200, "Something Else" is Thicke's highest charted album to date. Thicke obtained yet another top 10 hit single with "Magic" hitting #2 on the urban charts. The closing song, "Tie My Hands" was a favorite of Lil Wayne's and he put it on his record-breaking album, "The Carter 3." They performed the song together at the 2009 Grammys, soon after he toured with Mary J. Blige.

In December of 2009 Robin released "Sex Therapy," an album that created a fantasy world of eroticism, while still dealing with the honest struggle a man has with seduction, loneliness and betrayal. The title song, "Sex Therapy," was hailed by critics as "the sexiest song of the year" and went on to be #1 on the R&B/ Hip Hop charts and also won an ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Award.

Robin's fifth studio album, "Love After War" was released in December 2011. This is Thicke at his most raw and honest condition yet. This was an album born out of a desire to be the uncompromising, idealistic artist he was as a boy, married with the weight of being a man with responsibilities and the scars of the past. "Love After War" and songs you'll discover within it, like "An Angel on Each Arm," "I'm an Animal," "Never Give Up," "Cloud 9," "Pretty Lil' Heart" and "Tears on My Tuxedo" need no explanation: they speak for themselves. Robin believes a song can be whatever the listener wants it to be. The reasons and decisions that lead him to write his songs are not important; what matters most is how they make the listener feel. Robin is as faithful to his fans as they are to him. His ultimate desire is to entertain the listener… to move them… to inspire them… to make them love more.
