"Follow My Lead" off Cent's third album "Curtis" and was enlisted by producer Polow Da Don to play piano on Usher's "Love in This Club".
Right after finishing a roadshow for a promotional project of his second album, Thicke worked on his third effort "Something Else". Described as "wine and bubbly" type of music, the record benefitted from writing sessions that took place in different cities, a tactic employed by several of Thicke's idols, including Marvin Gaye.
Released on September 30, 2008, the Pro J-produced album lined up Lil Wayne and Mary J. Blige as guest stars. Sold 136,944 copies on its first week of sales, "Something Else" charted at number three on both Hot 200 and Billboard Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart.

He reached the peak of his career yet with his sixth album "Blurred Lines". The lead single of the same name peaked at No. 1 on Hot 100, marking his first ever chart topper on the rundown. Despite controversy of its raunchy lyrics and music video, the single ruled the chart for multiple weeks.
By the mid-year of 2013, the single reigned the list for seventh week officially posting the longest command for a Hot 100 topper of the year. It passed Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" (featuring Wanz) which sat at the top spot for six nonconsecutive weeks between February and April.
