Shortly after Whitney Houston’s passing, Robin Thicke covered one of Whit’s greatest hits. The “Duets” mentor choose “Exhale (Shoop Shoop)” and gave it a different vibe with his signature sultry bedroom voice. As much as I love Houston, I have to say I like Thicke’s interpretation more. “Exhale” isn’t one of my favorite tracks from the late singer’s discography, but Robin made me appreciate the song more.
Not content with just covering the song, the 35-year-old singer also filmed a tribute for Houston. The newly-released music video perfectly captures the mood of Robin’s version. It’s beautifully shot and almost haunting. Thicke is shown throwing an impromptu concert for passersby and crooning while walking through the streets of Los Angeles in the black and white clip. Check it out below.
What do you think of Robin’s cover and tribute video? Are you watching Thicke on “Duets? Should he cover more Whitney Houston songs on the ABC show? Sound off below.
