ROBIN THICKE

Born: March 10, 1977

Los Angeles, California

 

Born into the world of entertainment (both of his parents are actors), Robin Thicke decided to pursue a music career at the age of sixteen. With Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder as his greatest influences he set out to create his own unique, soul-filled sound. His debut single, "When I Get You Alone," was moderately successful and as a result he released his first album, A Beautiful World. The album only sold 63,000 copies, but Robin continued writing music for other pop artists such as Jordan Knight, Mya, and Christina Aguilera. In fact, he won a Grammy award for his collaboration with Usher on Confessions. That same year, Robin married his childhood sweetheart, actress Paula Patton.

After signing with Pharrell's label The Neptunes, Robin began working on his album The Evolution of Robin Thicke. The first two singles "Wanna Love U Girl" and "Lost Without You" made the album a huge success and it was certified platinum. Young Hollywood caught up with the cute crooner and his wife at the VMAs where he still seems to be adjusting to his sex symbol status. He may be humble, but there are definitely more great things to come from this blue-eyed soul man!

 

FUN FACTS:

As a kid he guest starred on "Growing Pains" and "The Wonder Years."

Until 2005 he performed under his surname Thicke.

American Idol runner-ip Blake Lewis performed "When I Get You Alone" during the 2007 season.
