Robin Thicke Teams Up With 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar & Will.i.am: Hear “Give It To You”

Robin Thicke called in the big guns for “Blurred Lines,” the lead single off his forthcoming album, with guest spots from Pharrell and T.I. And now for “Give It to You,” (although in the radio rip, Thicke calls it “Give It to Me”) he’s done it again, this time enlisting 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar, with will.i.am on production (and thankfully not on vocals anywhere).

We loved the laid-back cool of “Blurred Lines,” but this new cut is a more aggressive beast (subtlety was never will.i.am’s forte). With its serrated electro pulse and sort of hook-less, ceaseless forward motion, the song certainly evokes Black Eyed Peas at their most space-poppy. Thicke mainly sing-whispers come-ons here, then 2 Chainz hops in for an atypically underwhelming guest verse. As for K-Dot, his turn on the mic is the song’s high point, but it’s a little jarring to hear the Compton kid on a straight-up party track like this. Check out the song after the jump.

It’s no “Blurred Lines,” but Thicke is nicely filling that bad-boy-in-a-tux void that opened up when Justin Timberlake started singing about marriage and mirrors.
