Robin Thicke Made Unusual Vow

(Radio.com) For many musicians, the idea of hearing their song on the radio is a distant dream. But not for Robin Thicke. Having penned and produced numerous hits for other artists as a teenager, by the time he was in his early 20s he was ready to hear his own voice on the radio. In fact, he even made a vow not to cut his hair until he heard his song on the radio.

"When I was about 24 I released my first single 'When I Get You Alone,' and I had long hair down to my shoulders," he told Radio.com. "People say, 'Hey why did you cut your hair after the video?' It was because I had told myself I wouldn't cut my hair until I heard my song on the radio."

Thicke grew out his hair for two years. Then shortly after he heard his song on the radio, he chopped off his long locks. "I think I was in Los Angeles, I was leaving my house going down the hill and I heard it play on the radio," he recalled. "I was all by myself and I was like, 'AH! Nobody's even here to enjoy this with me right now.'"

This summer it's nearly impossible to go anywhere without hearing Thicke's No. 1 single "Blurred Lines" on the radio. His first No. 1 single, Thicke has come quite a way since his long-haired days. "What's changed about my image the most with the song is that people actually know who I am now," he said of "Blurred Lines." More including an album stream link.
