Robin Thicke may just have found the perfect song to mark his comeback. The singer’s new single “Back Together” may be his best one yet, with a hot music video which features Nicki Minaj.
The R&B singer unveiled the music video for his latest single “Back Together” on Aug. 12, and it reportedly created a big buzz for the formerly troubled star, Entertainment Tonight reported. This is a good departure from Thicke's previous summer flop “Paula,” which was dedicated to the singer’s ex-wife Paula Patton.
Given the single’s title “Back Together,” Thicke insisted the song was not about his former spouse. During an appearance on "Good Morning America" last week, Thicke shared how he heard an idea about "getting back together and getting yourself back together."
He said, “You know, what I was going through at the time I really related to that and connected with it. It's more about the theme of getting yourself back together with love and partnership." Thicke also mentioned that he couldn’t take credit for the meaning of the song since he didn’t pen it.
Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Times found Thicke’s “Back Together” as a “total banger” with a killer electro-disco groove. The publication also stated that the singer’s new single might end up as “one of the best of the year.”
Aside from “Back Together,” Thicke reportedly has been coming out with great songs lately such as “Morning Sun,” which is said to be the title track for the singer's upcoming album. His collaboration with Flo Rida and Verdine White of Earth Wind & Fire for "I Don't Like It, I Love It" is also one of his great music projects.
Thicke’s new music video for “Back Together” is also getting a lot of attention with the inclusion of the fierce Minaj in the video, Mirror reported. The “Anaconda” singer even raps in Thicke’s music video and generally tries to seduce him during the music clip. At the end of Minaj’s verse, Thicke extends his hands to her but she rejects it.
Minaj also took to Twitter on August 13 to help promote Thicke’s new video. She described the singer as “a lot of fun” and “very playful” in the studio.
