Robin Thicke Scores His First No. 1 Song

(Radio.com) When Robin Thicke went into the studio with Pharrell last summer, he just wanted to create a track that embodied the fun vibe of his favorite song of all time, Marvin Gaye's "Got To Give It Up." An hour later, the duo came up with "Blurred Lines," the song that would become Thicke's first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart as of this week.

"In the studio, Pharrell and I started jamming," Thicke told Radio.com this week. "One of the first things Pharrell did was go, 'Hey, hey, hey!' and then we started having such a great time. We were dancing around the studio like old men. We were doing our old men barbecue dances."

Pharrell and Thicke found themselves dancing around the studio all night to "Blurred Lines," but he never fathomed the reception it would receive a year later.

"We felt like maybe it was something special but it was so different," he admitted. "We didn't know it would be this big."

Thicke went on to explain how Pharrell was a big reason the song has seen so much success. "Pharrell, being one of the great hitmakers of the last 20 years, he really has an amazing ability, like a great director like Scorsese or Spielberg, to see the artist and individually create something with the artist that is different from what he would create for another artist," he said. "A lot of producers try to put their sound onto you where Pharrell really creates something individual for the artist." more on this story
