New Music Out This Week: Robin Thicke, Backstreet Boys, Michael Franti and Spearhead [VIDEO]
All hail Robin Thicke, who finally is getting the attention he deserves, and Backstreets back….Alright!
1.) Robin Thicke : “Blurred Lines” (guests: T.I., Pharrell, Kendrick Lamar) : Thicke described the inspiration for his latest album came from his wife who he loves to dance around the house with. Robin known for his ballads decided to pick up the tempo on his latest project and has catapulted to Number #1 on the charts with “Blurred Lines” the first single off the album.
2.) Backstreet Boys : “In a World Like This” For all the soccer moms out there they can school the kids about one of the original Boy Bands that helped pave the way with so many to follow. I wonder If they are still doing the fan cruises?
3.) Michael Franti & Spearhead: “All People” (guests: K’Naan, Gina René, Ethan Tucker)- I love the feel good vibe with Michael Franti, always makes me smile and makes me yearn to be sitting on a beach somewhere . He is the Pop star equivalent of Kenny Chesney.
