"Working with Jay-Z [came about because] he came by the studio, and he heard the album. He was very excited," Thicke explained to MTV News on the set of his "Sex Therapy" music video. "He jumped on a track called 'Me I Play.' "
Thicke said the track hearkens back to the soulful hip-hop from the early '90s. "[It's] kind of like a De La Soul kind of song, but he was really excited about it," Thicke said, adding that the collaboration was incredible. "To work with him was a dream come true. It was one of the best days of my life."
The singer has already been getting rave reviews for the album — he's just hoping no one is lying to him. "The album, as a whole, is actually the first time I didn't write and produce everything myself," he revealed. "I tried to create a new sound that I had never had before. A lot of people are telling me it's the best album yet, so I'm really excited. I hope that they're right!"
