Robin Thicke is giving fans some options with the release of his new album Sex Therapy.
R&B crooner Robin dropped two versions of his latest album Tuesday, so you can either pick up Sex Therapy: The Session or Sex Therapy: The Experience.
The album, which Robin produced along with Swizz Beatz and Polow Da Don, starts of with slower tracks like "Mrs. Sexy" and "Sex Therapy." He picks up the pace on the third tack, “Meiplé,” a samba-inspired track that features Jay-Z.
Hov is just one of several collaborators on Sex Therapy: Nicki Minaj makes an appearance on "Shakin’ It 4 Daddy," and Estelle gets rough in "Rollacosta."
And it’s worth mentioning that he dedicates “Jus Right,” which really reminds us of “Lost Without You,” to wife Paula Patton. He credits her with the inspiration for this album.
"She is my sex therapist," Robin told Usmagazine.com at his releases party where he also spoke about his next big project, a baby with Paula. "We’re preparing the baby room, painting rooms and picking colors. Paula’s kind of got the baby taste in the family. I’m just going to sing to it and cuddle with it and teach it how to play basketball and talk to girls."
But what’s the difference between the two albums? So far as we can tell Sex Therapy: The Session is shorter than Sex Therapy: The Experience. Where The Experience draws out the album with intros, interludes and three additional songs, The Session is a quickie that skips on all that.
There’s also the age-old debate over whether or not to buy the clean version. But if you like it a little dirtier, you probably want to pick up the explicit version of Sex Therapy.
