Robin Thicke Blasted by Critics for "Rapey" New Song Lyrics

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Robin Thicke has as an official hit on his hands with "Blurred Lines."

And an official controversy.

While the song has shot to number-one on the Billboard Hot 100, many are taking issue with its lyrics, with The Daily Beast leading the critical charge and accusing it of being too "rapey."

Among the verses generating criticism against Thicke is the following:

"I know you want it / You're a good girl / Can't let it get past me. I know you want it / But you're a good girl / The way you grab me / Must wanna get nasty."

Collaborator T.I. then goes on to sing about "these blurred lines" and how he knows "you want it."

The official unrated video, meanwhile, has been banned from YouTube as it depicts a number of naked ladies, leading to more charges against Thicke.

Listen to the track now and react: What do you think of the lyrics?
