Robin Thicke drew inspiration from some of his biggest heroes when writing music for his forthcoming album, On Earth, and in Heaven.
The 43-year-old hitmaker took to social media on Friday (Feb. 5) to reveal the emotional meaning behind the album’s opener “Lucky Star,” which was inspired by his late father Alan Thicke, who died in 2016, and Uptown Records founder Andre Harrell, who passed away in May.
“This is the last song I wrote for the album and it’s also the first track on the album,” Thicke wrote on Instagram. “Once we had this song I knew the album was complete. You know that feeling you have when you’re all alone but you know that you’re not alone. That’s what ‘Lucky Star’ is about. That presence in your life that holds you tight, gives you hope, and lights the way. My father and Andre Harrell are my Lucky Stars.”
