Robin Thicke was born to Canadian actor Alan Thicke and American singer and actress, Gloria Loring, in Los Angles, California. He has an older brother, Brennan, who worked as a voice-actor in the 1980s.

When Thicke was seven-years-old, his parents separated. Thicke's father refused to pay for his vocal group, after he recorded his first demo as a teenager.

Jazz singer Al Jarreau, the uncle of one of the group's members, ended up paying for the group's demo. The demo was heard by singer/songwriter Brian McKnight, who later helped Thicke by inviting him to his
recording studio to contribute to his second studio album. At the age of sixteen, Thicke signed a contract with Interscope Records. With his career in the music industry beginning, Thicke moved out and lived by himself at the age of seventeen.

Robin Thicke prepared for his debut studio album, 'Cherry Blue Skies', in 2000. It took until 2002 before he released his debut single, 'When I Get You Alone'. With only moderate success, Thicke released his debut album, now titled 'A Beautiful World', in 2003. The album opened at number 150 on the Billboard 200 List.

The following year, he released 'Sex Therapy: The Session', on 15th December 2009, debuting at number 9 on the list.

On 6th December 2011, Thicke released his fifth studio album, 'Love After War'. On 26th March, 2013, Thicke released the first single from his upcoming sixth studio album, both of which were entitled 'Blurred Lines'. The song received a large amount of controversy for its lyrics and sexual connotations. The album was first released in Germany on 12th July, 2013, before being released in the US on 30th of the same month.

In June, 2014, Thicke announced that he was working on a seventh studio album, entitled 'Paula', which was to be entirely dedicated to his estranged ex-wife.
