Robin Thicke is getting a lot of criticism over his single “Blurred Lines.” The song’s video was banned from YouTube due to nudity, with some critics even alleging the lyrics are “rapey.”
His newest video is likely to cause a lot less controversy. During an appearance on BBC 1 Radio on July 9, Thicke sat down at a piano for a very toned-down performance of Icona Pop’s hit song “I Love It.”
Listening to his cover, it’s hard to believe the original song is a fast-paced synthpop dance track. Maybe Thicke should look into covering more songs in this stripped-down style. Then his music wouldn’t be on Sesame Street anymore, though.
Sit back, kick your shoes off and give a listen to Thicke’s version of the song below:
