Blurred Lines hitmaker Robin Thicke believes that the only way he can beat the success of his current record is to recruit Barack Obama to feature in his next music video.

The 36-year-old star, who has sold nearly one million copies of the catchy track in the UK alone, compared the success of Blurred Lines to "winning the championship in your last season."

Speaking to MTV, Thicke said: ''We're going to have to see if President Obama will be in it.

''I don't know how you can top Blurred Lines. Either that, or maybe we just won't make a video at all. Just disappear on top.

''It's like winning the championship in your last season. Why play again?''

Robin, who married his long time girlfriend Paula Patton in 2005, previously explained why he decided to make an upbeat album, saying: ''I always wanted to be respected as an artist. As I got older, I didn't want to hear my own depressing ******** any more, I just wanted to hear some fun music I could dance with my wife to.''
