Robin Thicke sat down with WBLS ' Déjà Vu along with an intimate group of lucky fans at Dallas BBQ in New York City for a private luncheon. Dressed in a form fitting black suit, the newly single 38-year-old answered fans questions about his rumored relationship with model, April Love Geary following his divorce from actress Paula Patton as well as his new album for 2016 and working with Nicki Minaj on his new single "Back Together."

In an attempt to resurrect his career after his album Paula flopped last year, the former Real Husbands of Hollywood actor said that he will release his new album, Morning Sun in the spring and plans on spicing things up kicking off promotion with his single "Back Together" featuring rapper Nicki Minaj.

The "Blurred Lines" singer couldn't dodge the most anticipated questions during one of his many press stops... Is he off the market again?

"Not off the market. There was a young lady who was very helpful and supportive to me and my family through my most difficult times so when you make friends like that, you take care of them the same way they take of you. She's a good friend," he said.

Fresh off of performing his latest single, "Back Together" on Good Morning America, Robin revealed how his musical relationship with his collaborator, Nicki Minaj was initially set up by music mogul, Jay Z.

"Remember the song 'Sex Therapy?' That album was doing a listening session and Jay Z happens to be there and I played this song, 'Shake It For Daddy' and Jay Z said you should get this new girl Nicki Minaj to be on that song, and I had never heard of Nicki. She hadn't really blown up yet. So, I checked her out on the internet and was like 'Wow, she's amazing!'" He explained, "So, I got her on that record 'Shake It For Daddy' - this was six or seven years ago and now she's a global superstar phenomenon - and when I had this record 'Back Together' I felt like it needed a little more spice, it just wasn't quite spicy enough. So, we had to have that Nicki Minaj spice to take it over the top."
