Just in time for back to school, Robin Thicke dropped the music video for his new single “Give It 2 U” featuring old man in the club 2 Chainz and new king on the block Kendrick Lamar with a historically black college and university football game theme — without the football, that is. There may be no pigskin to be found, but there’s plenty of skin to be seen on this field with Thicke flanked by the Alabama State Stingettes and Albany Passionettes dance teams, professional twerkers and other assorted young women in various states of undress rocking bathing suits, barely there bikinis and big wigs. There’s a lot going on in these visuals that resemble an HBCU homecoming halftime show gone left. Director Diane Martel is back behind the lens once again, and it’s most obvious with the bold lettering announcing who’s on screen and other randomness popping up throughout the video like we first saw in “Blurred Lines.” Robin’s son Julian Fuego, who already has his rap name on lock should he ever decide to spit some hot fire, even gets in on the action with a cameo. So that’s what happens when daddy watches him for the day? Paula Patton, please come get your husband.
