With death always comes the variety of ways people cope with losing a loved one. For Robin Thicke, paying homage to the late Whitney Houston only made sense through the one avenue he and Whitney share in common. Controversy surrounded Thicke’s name this weekend from a recent marijuana possession arrest, but his cover of “Exhale (Shoop Shoop)” from 1995’s Waiting To Exhale soundtrack (arguably the G.O.A.T.) served as a beautiful tribute. Obviously, Whitney’s version’ll always remain superior, but Robin’s signature voice is enough to garner more than a few spins on the iPod.
And if you’re a religious and spiritual person who believes in the afterlife, I’d bet good money Whitney’s nodding her head in approval from heaven.
