Robin Thicke says Justin Timberlake "opened a door" for his career
The singer has been enjoying huge success with his No.1 hit 'Blurred Lines' and its style has been compared to that of Timberlake's newer material.
Speaking to Hot 87, Thicke admitted that the '20/20 Experience' man's divergence into more R&B territory has allowed his own music to reach a wider audience. He said:
"[Justin Timberlake] actually helped me a lot because his sound went more R&B and soulful and that's what I've been doing my whole career, so it really opened up a door."
'Blurred Lines' meanwhile has enjoyed popularity and also endured some controversy for its unrated video, which features three topless models.
