"Wanna Love U Girl" is the lead single by blue-eyed soul singer/songwriter Robin Thicke from his second album The Evolution of Robin Thicke.[1]

There is also a remix for the song, that does not only feature Robin Thicke and Pharrell but also two verses by rapper Busta Rhymes.

Chart performance[edit]

The single was officially released August 9, 2005. While expected to be a big hit, it failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100[2] and only peaked at #65 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

Music video[edit]

The video was filmed in August 2005 in the Dominican Republic. This video was shot with mostly natural lighting using mirrors and bounce boards as the locations were so remote that there were no cables available long enough to connect to the generator. Some of the models were brought from Mexico, Trinidad and Tobago, and two were local models from the Dominican Republic. This video was commissioned by Interscope for Star Trak. Pharrell was flown into the area of the location and then brought by boat to the beach as the roads were too dangerous for access after a hard rain the night before his performance shot. Thicke was also brought by boat to the beach locations and had to be driven in by 4WD to the waterfalls.
