Game & Kid Cudi Live Guest Performers At Robin Thicke L.A. Show
L.A. Times news clipping...
Robin Thicke opened his concert (Dec. 21) Monday night at Club Nokia with "Diamonds," the final track from his new "Sex Therapy" and true to its placement on the album, it felt an awful lot like a closer. The horn section throbbed with disco-soul abandon. The Game showed up to deliver a growly guest verse. And Thicke opened up his ode to maternal resilience to celebrate anyone who'd bought a ticket. "I want you to know you're all diamonds," he said. "Keep on shining!"
"It's in the Mornin" was the rare sexual entreaty in which the narrator celebrates his partner's willingness to "let it marinate." Kid Cudi joined Thicke for a grinding grunge-crunk take on "Elevatas," which Thicke punctuated by quoting Prince's "Let's Go Crazy." And "Shakin' It 4 Daddy" rode a hard digital bounce.
