When Robin Thicke went into the studio with Pharrell last summer, he just wanted to create a track that embodied the fun vibe of his favorite song of all time, Marvin Gaye‘s “Got To Give It Up.” An hour later, the duo came up with “Blurred Lines,” the song that would become Thicke’s first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart as of this week.

“In the studio, Pharrell and I started jamming,” Thicke told Radio.com this week. “One of the first things Pharrell did was go, ‘Hey, hey, hey!’ and then we started having such a great time. We were dancing around the studio like old men. We were doing our old men barbecue dances.”

Pharrell and Thicke found themselves dancing around the studio all night to “Blurred Lines,” but he never fathomed the reception it would receive a year later.

“We felt like maybe it was something special but it was so different,” he admitted. “We didn’t know it would be this big.”

Thicke went on to explain how Pharrell was a big reason the song has seen so much success.
