Open Letter to Robin Thicke - Tia

Dear Robin,

Long time listener, first time writer.

Maybe I'm just biased. I don't know. But I have not liked a thing that you've put out since The Evolution of Robin Thicke. Don't get me wrong. I'm a fan. And I understand that as an artist you have to remain "relevant." So I almost forgive you for putting that no talent hack of a gremlin Lil' Wayne all over Evolution.

But between you, me and the wall, I think you're trying a little too hard to be relevant. So much so that all the talent and creativity that you displayed on A Beautiful World has been sacrificed for radio friendly fare.

I just heard your new single over at Concreteloop.com. Yeah, I'm gonna pass on all that. It almost sounds like a, dare I even say it, a lost JT track. I'm sorry...I'm sorry. I know people try to group all of the white boys into the same category. But if you don't want to be just another "blue-eyed soul singer" then do better. I know you've got some old Thicke tracks in a vault somewhere. Maybe give those another once over...

I need you to dig up that flash drive that has all of the songs that didn't make the cut for A Beautiful World and put out another Thicke album. Give this guy "Robin Thicke" a break and bring back the Thicke we all know and love. I mean, who doesn't love Brand New Jones?

But hey, if you just want to continue to cater to the masses and put out songs that are just a-ight, that's on you, Champ.

Kindest Regards,
Tia
