‘Blurred Lines’ Singer Robin Thicke Wants to Make Gospel Album
By Jessica Martinez | CP Contributor
R&B singer Robin Thicke wants to crossover genres and make a gospel album following the success of his no. 1 hit, “Blurred Lines,” on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
“I want to make a country album, a Christmas album, a gospel album. I’m like, ‘Finally!’ I’m ready to make four albums right now,” said Thicke, reported Billboard.com.
In the past, Thicke has become successful by making soulful, slow rhythm tracks that is his signature style. But his new interest to delve into gospel music comes as no surprise as his funkier, upbeat new single “Blurred Lines,” featuring T.I. and Pharrell, is his first genre switch into mega main stream music – the opposite of what he is known for.
“The reason why `Blurred Lines’ is breaking records is because rarely do you have a song playing on all pop stations and all black stations, all of the urban stations. And because I have an urban fan base and urban audience, I wonder if it was a brand-new artist, would they play ‘Blurred Lines’ on black radio? I don’t think so,” said Thicke.
