Robin Thicke knows how to make a true R&B song. With his new gig on ABC’s new show Duets we get to see his chemistry with his partners, and hear how The Beatles (who he thinks have the best duets of all time) has influenced his music. But for “All Tied Up,” the third single from his fifth album Love After War, he’s singing solo and beautifully. Thicke is giving R&B the much needed breath of revitalization it needs. And he has the chops (singing chops that is) to do it. Like the song–sultry, smooth, soulful–the video captures how the music makes you feel.
A shirtless (swoon!) Thicke sings, “Come and save me, come and save me.” Things get steamy between him and the lead as they tease one another in the heat. The lack of color in the black and white clip exudes intimacy in opposed to raunchy. It’s soft yet invigorating. Thicke stretches his vocal range from the normal falsetto to a much deeper alto sound belted from the pit of his stomach. As the title suggests, the video is seductive with just the perfect amount of sexy and intimacy. His wife Paula Patton is one lucky woman.
