Robin Thicke, ‘Love After War’ – Song Review
R&B loverboy Robin Thicke returns with a tender break-up-to-make-up song that is perfect for guys who had a lover's quarrel with their girlfriends. The 33-year-old crooner's falsetto is still light as a feather on the jazzy track with its melodic piano groove that will make your head nod.
On the ballad, Thicke is apologetic and wants to reconcile after having a heated argument with his significant other. He tells his lady that he's a lover, not a fighter and is willing to make amends for the wrong that he has done.
"Love After War / I just wanna love you lady / Love After War / Wanna put down our weapons, baby / Love After War / Lay your guns down on the floor / Love After War / And give me some love after war," he sings on the chorus.
'Love After War' is the lead single and title track from his upcoming fifth LP. According to Idolator, the album will follow the trials and tribulations of a married couple as they embark on their journey of matrimony. Hmm, that's sounds like Thicke's own reality since he's married to actress Paula Patton and is a proud daddy to his newborn son Julian Fuego.
Thicke's 'Love After War' LP will feature production assistant from longtime collaborator Pharrell Williams. In addition, rapper Lil Wayne (on the song 'Pretty Little Heart") and fellow R&B singers Maxwell and Faith Evans make cameos on the collection, which is due in stores on Nov. 15.
