“He loves [Robin] more than me,” younger brother Carter says in the show’s trailer. “Why? Because he makes him more money.” LOL. Consider me sold!!! I’m already hooked. The saucy title isn’t half bad either.

Unusually Thicke is a new 14-episode reality series premiering on TVGN on April 16. It follows the adventures of Growing Pains star Alan Thicke, his much younger third wife Tanya and teenage son Carter. “Unusually Thicke combines my two favorite things,” the 67-year-old actor said in a statement. “Family … and laughing at my family.”

I wanted NOT to like it due to my previous impression of Tanya on Celebrity Wife Swap, but I have to say, the charming trailer won me over. Their daily lives seem to be filled with lots of fun and humor.

If you have a thing for stars from yesteryear, Unusually Thicke has a slew of them. Several of Alan’s famous celebrity friends including David Hasselhoff, Bob Saget, John Stamos, Magic Johnson, Wayne Gretzky, Bill Maher and Tom Green make an appearance. Million dollar question is… do Robin and his now separated wife Paula Patton make an appearance? Check out the trailer below.

Director X sure is one busy dude today. Not only does he have one music video debuting, but two. First there was Iggy Azalea’s Clueless-inspired “Fancy” visual and now this colorful pink concoction. It’s like a 100 flamingos exploded everywhere.

Calling All Hearts” is a fun dance track featuring an all-star lineup. DJ Cassidy who’s deejayed celebrity parties for Oprah Winfrey, Naomi Campbell, Diddy and countless others, enlisted Nile Rodgers, Earth, Wind & Fire, Robin Thicke and Jessie J. for this retro-tinged single. It’s off his debut LP Paradise Royale scheduled for May. Check out the fun clip below.

Robin Thicke Enlists Tamar Braxton For Ballad Remix

For The Rest of My Life” was originally the second single lifted off Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines album. However, when the ballad stalled and peaked only at No. 48 on the R&B charts, Thicke opted to go with “Give It 2 U” as the follow-up single to his mega-hit “Blurred Lines.” To be fair, the slow jam never really got a shot because “Blurred Lines” became a phenomenon and refused to die. A year later, the ballad is getting new life thanks to Toni’s little sister.

Tamar Braxton lends her velvety vocals to the tender ballad. Gotta say, I much prefer this remix version than the original. The track really lends itself to a duet. Their harmonies are tight and adlibs exquisite. This is some serious baby-making music. Hopefully, Thicke and Braxton give it some much-deserved promotion and film an accompanying music video. Give it a listen below and weigh in afterward.

Turns out the rumors are true. Beyonce and Jay-Z are performing at this weekend’s Grammy Awards. CBS confirmed their additions in a brand new promo clip. In the first hour alone, the show boasts an incredible lineup which includes Katy Perry, Lorde, Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift, John Legend, Hunter Hayes and Mr. & Mrs. Carter. With the latter two now solidified, I wonder if those Madonna rumors are true as well.

Sunday night’s Grammys will mark Beyonce’s first televised performance since the launch of her self-titled fifth album last month. Beyoncé’s total currently stands at 1.5 million, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

In other Bey-related news, the singer recently premiered a glitzy commercial for her latest fragrance, Rise. It’s lots of glamor shots of the “Irreplaceable” singer in a sea of gold dust and glitter. Ke$ha would be so jealous. Check it below.

Robin Thicke Feels Good In New Video

Blurred Lines” was such a huge hit, Robin Thicke will most likely never match its success. At least on this album he won’t. The follow-up, “Give It 2 U” featuring Kendrick Lamar, was actually pretty good but didn’t even crack the Top 20 of Billboard’s Hot 100. Hit latest will probably suffer a similar fate, if not worse. Thicke is the victim of his own success.

Feel Good” finds Robin joined by a bevy of women once again. However this time they’re fully-clothed, albeit dressed in Las Vegas-looking attire, but at least not bouncing around with their titties out. Progress I guess ;) While a decent album filler, I’m surprised he chose the will.i.am-penned track to release next. With a North American tour in February, he’ll need another radio hit to support it. Sadly, “Feel Good” just isn’t it IMHO. There are far more superior tracks on the LP. Check out the video below.

Shazam Reveals Most Tagged Songs & TV Shows Of 2013

I don’t know about you, but I feel Shazam is probably one of the best apps ever created. There is nothing more frustrating than hearing a song but not being able to remember the title or artist. Even worse, if you hear it on your favorite TV show and rack your brain trying to figure it out, but still come up empty-handed. Honestly, Shazam has saved me numerous headaches. I also love using it as a makeshift to-download list for songs I need to purchase. The service has been partially credited for Icona Pop’s success. Their hit “I Love It” went on to be Shazamed more than two millions times in the US after appearing on Girls.

In the past several years, Shazam’s activity has increased at an astronomical rate. In 2011, Adele was tops with 4 million Shazams. In 2012, five artists achieved more than five million tags. This year, 43 artists have achieved more than five million Shazams. The popular music tagging service revealed their annual list of most popular tags. Check out the lists below and see if your tagging contributed to the totals.

Robin Thicke Rides Like The Wind With Will Ferrell

Mariah & Whitney. Celine & Barbra. Britney & Rihanna. Those pairings have given us some pretty great duets. Now, we can add Robin Thicke and Will Ferrell to that group ;) Okay not really, but it’s a fun listen nonetheless.

Ferrell in his Ron Burgundy alter ego delivers spoken word as Thicke taps into his upper register to cover Christopher Cross’ classic “Ride Like The Wind.” The collaboration is for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues which opens December 18.

Word on the street suggests an accompanying music video is also in the works. I can’t wait. Should be an equally fun ride. As an aside, I have to give Robin props. His parts sound fantastic. A solo version could’ve easily fit in on his current studio album. Check out the duet below.

VEVO Reveals The 10 Most Played Music Videos In 2013

Despite all the headlines and chart success, Miley Cyrus received no Grammy nominations. I guess all her antics scared off Academy voters. Here’s a small consolation prize for being snubbed.

VEVO recently released their annual list ranking the ten most played music videos of the year. In no shocker, Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” topped the list. After all, the clip generated 19.3 million views on its first day of release and was the fastest to be certified in VEVO’s history by reaching 100 million views within just six days. As of December 1, the much-spoofed clip stood tall with over 371 million views worldwide. Last year’s winner, “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen notched 357 million clicks in 2012.

The most interesting part of the list is how a couple of leftovers from last year made the list. Both Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and will.i.am’s collabo with Britney landed in the Top 10. On the flip side, Katy Perry breaking the Top 5 is equally as impressive, given that “Roar” only premiered just in August. Check out below what other clips were extremely popular in 2013.
