Though his success has been steady, nobody could have guessed just how big a star Robin would become in 2013. His latest single, "Blurred Lines", from his sixth studio album of the same name, was a runaway smash, quickly landing on the top of the Billboard charts in the US and reaching number one in nine countries including Australia and the UK. Featuring singers T.I. and Pharrell Williams, the tune is a departure from Robin's more soulful previous songs, and it's proven to be his most successful move yet.
The inspiration behind the poppy beat? He and his wife Paula "really wanted to have fun again, we wanted to be young again and we wanted to dance again and go out with our friends, so I wanted to make music that reflected that culture". We're glad they did!
