Robin Thicke’s New Album Inspired By Barack Obama

R&B singer talked with CNN’s Don Lemon about his new album ‘Something Else’, his politics and his inspirations. Thicke said the new album was largely inspired by Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama. “I’m inspired by righteousness and hope and goodness, the same things Stevie Wonder, John Lennon, Marvin Gaye, Bob Dylan talk about. Those are the things I like to talk about,” Thick said. “So I think Barack cares about everybody, not just a chosen few.”

Lemon said when he played the music for his family, they assumed the artist was black. Asked what he felt about that perception, Thicke responded, “Well I think of it as a compliment because I’m singing soul music. We’re all striving to get to a day when all those boundaries and doors are closed.” Video of the interview at has since been removed.

    Barack Obama may be a charismatic leader but somehow his economic policies are not that great in my own opinion. But still I am thankful that a Obama is the current president of the United States.
