Watch: Robin Thicke – ‘Still Madly Crazy’ (Video)

robin thicke still madly crazy video

With his new album Paula in stores today, Robin Thicke is spreading the feeling of sweet and innocent love with the video for his piano ballad “Still Madly Crazy.”

The soulful crooner casts 10 8-year-olds to reenact a wedding. Decked out in their formal wear, the adorable bunch sings along to the tender lyrics and toasts the bride and groom before getting into a cake fight.

Thicke does not appear in the clip, but he will appear live on “GMA” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” tomorrow.

You can stream all 14 tracks off Paula here.

“Obviously all the songs were about her or about how I feel about her,” he told Ryan Seacrest of his estranged wife Paula Patton. “A lot of songwriters have done this kind of thing before. They won’t tell you in the title or they’ll be suggestive. I was just like, ‘There’s no reason to hide who this is about.’ It’s all about her.”

Exclusive: Mack Wilds Talks New Vibe Cover, Current Sound of R&B, Being An Actor Turned Singer, His Album & More

Mack-Wilds-ThisisRnB-Interview

Stepping into the entertainment industry is already a difficult task for any aspiring artist. What’s even more difficult though, is trying to move over from one area to the next. In the past when actors have tried to add singing or rapping to their resumes, it very seldom works out. However, when a talent prevails like Jamie Foxx, Tyrese, Jared Leto, Justin Timberlake, or new school triple threat acts like Zendaya and Trevor Jackson, we often forget that they were even known for acting or singing in the first place.

Somewhat of the same case can be said for famed actor Mack Wilds. Receiving fame in 2006 for his role as Michael Lee in the HBO hit series The Wire, Tristan – who uses Mack as his stage name – has been a well-known actor starring in top productions such as Red Tails and 90210. Now, eight years after the start to his most famous role, the New York native is becoming known for something a little different.

Receiving a Grammy nomination for his debut album New York: A Love Story, Mack Wilds has gained a large amount of critical acclaim for his ability to jump in and out of both sides of the entertainment industry. Truly talented in all arenas, the 24-year-old actor turned singer/rapper turned heads when his debut single, “Own It” hit airwaves in 2013.

Although it’s now just a short year, full album, dope singles and a Vibe Magazine cover later, the singer is taking on many heights in his career and owns it all well. Taking a little time to chat with ThisIsRnB about his current ventures, Mack is ready to take over 2014 and the years to come. Discussing his new Vibe Magazine cover, upcoming music plans, current sound and more, this interview will surely let you in on just who Mack Wilds really is.
