Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines Debuts #1 on Billboard

blame it on Shake August 6, 2013

As expected, Robin Thicke’s new album Blurred Lines — led by the inescapable single with the same name — will take the top spot on Billboard this week with 177k sold in it’s first seven days on shelves. I wonder if Wayne Gretzky, who once babysat an 11-year-old Robin the night he was traded to the Los Angeles Kings, is gonna help celebrate?

    I bet your dumb ass forgot to explain the asterisk after 174k

    Considering how much the single sold thats a pretty low number. Plus I see the album is falling fast on itunes. Guess he’s a singles seller like so many artists today. I’d rather be an albums seller.

    ^robin thicke’s last album probably didn’t even sell 174k total. Hahaha. So, it’s all cake for him. He’s never been a massive crossover popstar anyways. Congrats to Mr. Thicke.

    ^but this album definitely is crossover popstar (sellout) material.. guess that’s why it’s his best selling one

    But if it’s also his best album quality wise, he’s not a fucking sellout.

    How exactly did he sell out? Robin Thicke didn’t have a marketing machine behind him like say a Justin Timberlake. That song Blurred Lines jus naturally caught fire with people. It was out for two months before people caught on to it. I mean, it’s a Marvin Gaye sample and has a jazz and soul sound to it, It’s just fun and lighthearted lyrically. How’s that selling out? Just because its commercially successful doesn’t mean it’s a sellout song. So let the man enjoy his money now. I didn’t like the album too much but it’s not much different from his other albums in terms of production.

    Robin Thicke is everything EXCEPT a sellout. If you listened to his his past ALBUMS (instead of just the singles) you’d know that this is his normal sound. Folks are just finally catching on.
