Rollacoasta

Album: Sex Therapy (2009)
  • This song featuring English R&B chanteuse Estelle is the fourth single from R&B singer-songwriter Robin Thicke's fourth studio album, Sex Therapy. Thicke told MTV News that he had the American Boy singer in mind when he started working on the song. "She's just an amazing talent," he said. "She's a rapper. She's a singer. She's a writer. So it was really meant to be, and when I had this record, I was thinking to myself [that] it was perfect [for Estelle]."
  • Thicke told MTV News that he wanted to keep the video's vibe a little lighter than the song's deep subject matter. He explained: "The song is about the roller coaster you go through in a single relationship, but in this video, we're just talking about the roller coaster of romance. We're trying to throw a nice little house party that's representative of the house parties that I have at my house, which is classy, sexy, wild, naughty all at the same time."
