Robin Thicke,Grammy Award Winning singer Is Son Of Actor Alan Thicke

Robin Charles Thicke is an American Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter, musician, composer, and occasional actor.Robin was born March 10, 1977 and is the son of actor Alan Thicke and his first wife, Days of our Lives actress, Gloria Loring.In 2004 Thicke won his first Grammy award for his collaborations on Usher's 2004 release Confessions. As an artist, he recorded and performed solely under his surname, Thicke. He would continue to do so until 2005. On June 11, 2005, Thicke married actress Paula Patton, whom he met and began dating when he was 14 years old.In 2000, Robin, who simply went by his last name Thicke, went to work on material for his debut album, initially entitled Cherry Blue Skies. The album focused more on blue-eyed soul, than his pop-offerings for other artists.

In 2002, Robin Thicke released his debut single "When I Get You Alone". The track samples Walter Murphy's "A Fifth of Beethoven", which itself is a disco rendition of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. The music video for the song features an unshaven Thicke, with long, wild hair, as a courier racing through the streets of Manhattan on a bicycle. It received some rotation on MTV2 and BET's Rated Next and was spun moderately on urban radio. Globally, however, "When I Get You Alone" became a chart success when it peaked within the top 20 in Australia, Belgium, and Italy, and reached the top ten of the singles charts in New Zealand and the top three in the Netherlands. The tune was featured for the soundtrack of Agent Cody Banks.

In 2005, Thicke performed as a guest on the remix of Will Smith's song, "Switch". After being signed to The Neptunes label, Star Trak, he began working on his second album entitled The Evolution of Robin Thicke. The first single, "Wanna Love U Girl", featured producer Pharrell and experienced chart success on urban radio in the United Kingdom. For the video, Thicke changed his appearance, cutting off his trademark long hair. In 2006, a remix version of the song was filmed with rapper Busta Rhymes.

In March 2007, The Evolution of Robin Thicke was certified Platinum by the RIAA. Thicke and his record label Interscope soon considered potential tracks to be released as the album's next and third single. Thicke's preference was the track "Can U Believe", which has since peaked at number fifteen on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and at number ninety-nine on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.On October 2, 2007 the track "Got 2 Be Down" was released as the album's fourth official single. The single, to date, has peaked at number sixty on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks.
