Robin Thicke has reportedly written a brand new song that will debut at the Billboard Music Awards this coming Sunday May 18th. Called Get Her Back, rumor has it the song is another of his attempts to win back his estranged wife, actress Paula Patton.
Thicke and Patton were childhood sweethearts who were married for almost nine years when news of their break up hit the media this past February. This isn’t the first public plea the Blurred Lines singer, who once appeared on stage with a very risque Miley Cyrus during the premiere of her infamous twerking, has made to Paula Patton. In fact, Thicke has beseeched the actress in public several times since February from various stages around the country in hopes that she will come back to him. To Robin Thicke’s credit he was not twerking at the time of those performances.
The lyrics to Get Her Back feature lines like, “All I wanna do is make it right … I gotta get her, go get her back / I gotta treat her right / I gotta cherish her for life … I should’ve kissed you longer / I should’ve held you stronger / And I’ll wait for forever for you.”
“We will always love each other and be best friends; however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” Robin Thicke and Paula Patton said in a joint statement back in February.

It was just about a month later when Thicke talked to E! about his separation from his wife.
“We’re both very happy,” he said. Robin went to to explain why his concerts sometimes seemed like confessionals.
“I wasn’t sharing anything except what I was going through at that very second,” he said. “So for me, as an entertainer and a songwriter, it’s important for the music to be honest.”
Will Sunday night’s heart felt confessional be enough to win Paula Patton back?
Paula Patton had this to say about Robin Thicke in the June 2014 issue of Vanity Fair.
“We’ve known each other since we were teenagers. All I can tell you is there’s a deep love there—always was, and always will be,” she said.
Might a reconciliation be underway? Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have one child together–a son named Julian.
