Robin Thicke has named his next album after estranged wife Paula Patton.
The Blurred Lines singer split from his wife of nearly nine years in February and has been trying to win her back with public declarations ever since.
And it appears he’s stepping up his efforts with his forthcoming seventh solo LP, which MTV News reports has been named Paula.
Robin recently debuted a single from the album, entitled Get Her Back, performing it at the Billboard Music Awards last month.
Taking the stage to accept the award for Top Hot 100 Song for Blurred Lines, Robin made sure her name didn’t go without mention.
“Most importantly, I’d like to thank my wife for her love and support, and for putting up with me all these years,” he told the crowd.
Robin and Paula have never discussed the reasons for their split.
Shortly after their separation was confirmed, Robin told the crowd at one of his shows that he’d penned his 2007 track Lost Without U about Paula.
“For y’all that don’t know, me and my wife separated, but I’m trying to get my girl back. She’s a good woman,” he said.
Paula has declined to discuss details about the separation, telling Vanity Fair magazine only that there would always be a “deep love there” during a recent interview.
MTV reports Robin will be performing new material from the record at the BET Awards June 29.
Paula is slated for a July 1 release on Star Trak/Interscope Records.
