Lil Wayne and Robin Thicke have a long, successful history of collaborating with one another, so it makes sense that the two artists would continue the trend with new single “Pretty Lil’ Thing”, a track off Thicke’s forthcoming fifth studio album “Love After War”. 

Opening with a slow rap by the multi-platinum Weezy over a soft drum beat and minimalist piano arrangement, at around the :45 second mark the tune transitions into some typically sultry “lover-boy” vocals by Thicke, who echoes the words of an insecure lover with lines like, “Tell me that I’m sexy/Like I was before” before assuring her in the chorus: “Baby you got me/Don’t worry your pretty lil’ heart”.

You can listen to the tune below:
