Self‐taught pianist Robin Thicke, the son of actor Alan Thicke, wrote and produced songs for Michael Jackson, Marc Anthony, Pink and Christina Aguilera all before he was 21. Signing with Interscope Records, Thicke released the album A Beautiful World in 2003, but it wasn’t until 2006 when his breakout second album, The Evolution of Robin Thicke, was released that the performer became a household name.
Having toured with Beyonce and Mary J. Blige, Thicke appeared as a judge on ABC’s reality singing competition show Duets alongside John Legend, Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Nettles.
In 2013, Thicke released “Blurred Lines,” a collaboration with T.I. and Pharrell that served as the lead single off his sixth studio album of the same name. The song’s video – for which Thicke sought approval from his wife, actress Paula Patton – garnered more than a million views in the days after its release online.
With Special Guest Summer Walker
Summer Walker is quietly carving out a niche of her own. Signed to LVRN/Interscope Records, the artist has gained attention from the release of her four-track CLEAR EP and 2018’s Last Day of Summer. The latter spawned the breakout single “CPR,” which has gained over 55 million streams, while her follow up single “Girls Need Love” is certified Platinum with over 196 million streams worldwide. She recently teamed up with rap superstar Drake for the official remix. Summer has garnered early praise from the likes of Billboard & Noisey and has been featured on several of 2019’s Ones to Watch lists. Complex touts, “It’s still early days, but Summer Walker’s emergence feels like the start of something very special.” Summer’s music showcases her affinity for R&B, soul, pop and alternative music. Like the love child of Jimi Hendrix and Amy Winehouse, Summer Walker brings a new fire and flavor to R&B.
