While Robin Thicke fans are still trying to figure out what rhymes with hug me, the newfound controversy magnet has released another new single. Called “Give It 2 U,” the incredibly catchy throwback track includes this unfortunate run of lyrics: “I got this for you / a little Thicke for you / A big kiss for you / I got a hit for you / Big d–k for you / Let me give it to you.”
It doesn’t get much better from there, with Kendrick Lamar rapping about “d–k love” during his guest verse. Here’s Vulture’s Amanda Dobbins on the track, because HuffPost Entertainment couldn’t sum up “Give It 2 U” any better: “‘Give It 2 U’ sounds like a late-Britney club cover of ‘D–k in a Box,’ minus the fancy wrapping.”
Thicke is having quite a summer. The video for his smash hit single “Blurred Lines,” the title track from his new album, has been criticized for being “rapey.” Thicke himself fanned those flames in an interview with GQ:
We tried to do everything that was taboo. Bestiality, drug injections, and everything that is completely derogatory towards women. Because all three of us are happily married with children, we were like, “We’re the perfect guys to make fun of this.”People say, “Hey, do you think this is degrading to women?” I’m like, “Of course it is. What a pleasure it is to degrade a woman. I’ve never gotten to do that before. I’ve always respected women.” So we just wanted to turn it over on its head and make people go, “Women and their bodies are beautiful. Men are always gonna want to follow them around.”
Listen to “Give It 2 U” above, but be prepared to have it stuck in your head for the foreseeable future.
