Robin Thicke's New Song 'Ain't No Hat 4 That' Is A Family Affair

(Radio.com) Robin Thicke shows no signs of slowing down. On the heels of releasing new track "The Good Life" earlier this week and "Give It 2 U" featuring Kendrick Lamar two weeks ago, Thicke released another new song, "Ain't No Hat 4 That," Wednesday night (July 17). The song features his familiar falsetto and funky, fast beats, but there is one voice at the beginning of the track that catches us off guard in its utter smallness: his son's.

Thicke's three-year-old son Julian kicks off the song, saying, "Ain't no hat for that." But he isn't the only family member who assisted on the track. Thicke's father, Growing Pains actor Alan Thicke, helped co-write the track.

Like much of Thicke's new music, "Ain't No Hat 4 That" has a feel-good vibe that seems informed by Off The Wall era Michael Jackson and Jamiroquai, among others.

Thicke often finds inspiration from another family member, his wife Paula Patton. "My wife is my creative partner," he recently told Radio.com. "She's an actress, filmmaker and producer and I'm a creative writer of all kinds. Any idea I have she's the first one to hear it or see it and make it better always. And sometimes she's the one with the idea. She'll just come up and say, 'You need to write a song about this,' because she's going through it. Sometimes I'll write a song with what she's going through." Listen here.
