Robin Thicke Glad His Chart Success Happened Now: "Everything Happens For A Reason"

The 'Blurred Lines' singer says believes now is the right time for his music to have taken off.

Robin Thicke says he is glad it has taken him so long to breakthrough into the mainstream as he doesn't believe he would have dealt with success well early on in his career.

The US R&B star has scored the longest running Billboard Hot 100 number one of the year so far with his single 'Blurred Lines', and says scoring such a huge chart hit now, despite having had five albums, must have been meant to happen.

"R&B and soul music doesn't quite translate as well in Europe," Robin told the Daily Star this week. "Maybe my previous records were not promoted right or maybe the music wasn't good enough to be popular.

"I guess everything happens for the right reason at the right time," he explained. "I think if I'd had too much success too early I probably would have f****d it all off anyway.

"The great thing for me is I've been making music like this my whole career," Robin added. "Now I'm looking like I'm current."

Earlier this month the singer teased that he may have a potential collaboration with 'We Can't Stop' star Miley Cyrus in the works.

Robin Thicke releases his sixth studio album 'Blurred Lines' on 30th July.
