Problematic popstar Robin Thicke has been in the press recently as he's had to deny that he's engaged to his new 20-year-old girlfriend. #Justice4Paula.

However, the singer has just shared the audio for his latest single "Back Together" and it is a jam!

The second song from Thicke's upcoming eighth studio album, "Back Together" was produced by Max Martin (well, duh) and features a fresh rap from Nicki Minaj who sounds alive on the track, which is full of pulsing synths, glutting electronics and funky percussion. We mean there's even a cowbell! 

Now, we're not quite ready to forget the tragic misstep that was the creep-a-thon album Paula, nor the general blind sightedness of the "Blurred Lines" video, but we know a basic bop when we hear one and this is most certainly that. Yes there are some rather cringe lyrics ("I want to live between your legs" anyone?), but we can totally see us getting down to this. 

Listen to "Back Together" below. 

What do y'all think? Is this Thicke's redemption? Are we wrong? Holler on Twitter pls.
