Sex Therapy: The Experience
A GRAMMY-winning singer, songwriter, and producer, Robin Thicke has long since escaped the shadow of his famous father, becoming a reliable go-to guy for quality modern R&B, collaborating with a wide variety of artists, including Usher, Lil Wayne, and Michael Jackson. Known for his falsetto vocal tone, lush arrangements, and bedroom-obsessed lyricism, he's kind of like a white R. Kelly, with a slightly more subtle approach and far less courtroom drama. Sex Therapy is his fourth full-length, and runs the gamut from gentle ballads ("2 Luv Birds") to more aggressive club jams ("Shakin' It 4 Daddy") and breezy party starters such as "Meiplé" with Jay-Z. The jazzy vamp of "Million Dolla Baby" and vaguely tropical "Jus Right" are also impressive.
