Most artists write a song about a lost love. Not Robin Thicke.
His five-months-and-counting separation from wife Paula Patton has prompted him to write and produce an entire album dedicated to winning her back.
And just so there’s no confusion about whom his seventh solo LP is devoted to, he’s naming it Paula.
That’s right. After debuting the album's heartfelt single, “Get Her Back,” Thicke is stepping things up a notch for that elusive second chance.
While Patton admitted that she would always have a “deep love” for her husband, she hasn’t yet publicly responded to his new ballad or his repeated attempts to woo her at his recent live performances.
She’ll get another chance, though. The Blurred Lines singer will perform some of his new material at the 2014 BET Awards on June 29.
Paula is scheduled for release on July 1 on Star Trak/Interscope Records.
