Robin Thicke – Ms. Sexy
The Jiggaman also gave Thicke his co-sign on another of the album’s cuts, “Ms. Sexy.” The track pays homage to Rakim’s classic “Mahogany,” which sampled Al Green’s “I’m Glad You’re Mine.” “Her name was Mahogany, her friend’s name was Ebony,” Thicke sings on the track, flipping Rakim’s lyrics. “I said, ‘My name is Rob, and this is Jay-Z.’ ” The singer said Hov loved it. “Before anybody else heard it, Jay-Z heard it, and he said, ‘That’s genius. That’s genius on so many levels.’ He said, ‘First of all, who do you think you are? Who do you think you are, doing Rakim? You got ba–s, boy.’ ” Thicke’s Sex Therapy comes out December 15.
