UPDATE: Robin Thicke’s Album ‘Paula’ Has Sold A Very Low Number Of Copies, Like Really Low

Robin Thicke's plan to win back wife Paula Patton hasn't quite worked out yet. Unfortunately, the singer is also struggling on the music chart side of things. As The Guardian indicates, his new studio album, Paula, only sold 530 copies in the U.K. in its first week of sales. To put in contrast, his last album Blurred Lines sold 25,981 copies in July 2013.

2014 wasn't easy for Thicke so far. After the split from actress Patton, he went on a mission of love with his new album, but the campaign experienced early difficulties with the disastrous #AskThicke Q&A on Twitter, in which the hashtag was responded with comments about misogyny, his raunchy 2013 VMA performance with Miley Cyrus, and more. Users replied with questions such as, "Is your next 'hit' just a lyric sheet, with a Rohypnol Sellotaped to it? #AskThicke" and "#AskThicke Did you really write a rape anthem as a love song for your wife and are you still wondering why she left you?"

In the U.S., Thicke's new album landed at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 with sales of 24,000.

UPDATE: It keeps getting worse for Thicke. Paula only sold less than 54 copies. As News.com.au points out, the album failed to make the ARIA Top 500 in Australia

    Maybe because this album concept sucks balls

  • vivithetruthmaker

    I dont understand why Robin would even release it. Theres no point in making an album dedicated to an ex for the whole world to hear. I think its embarrassing on both parties.

    :'( but he just means well and stuff, i don't know man. Thicke has 7 studio albums now, many don't know his other work they just think blurred lines and suddenly everyone wants to call him a misogynist and whatever. He fucked up hard on his girl, he made mistakes, sales flopped. But, this is not your typical album and shit, he wrote it in like 3 weeks, with his intention that paula would here this and see his visuals. This is a situation that is above our heads. We're going to fuck up hard and be labeled negative things one day, once this happens maybe you'll be able to appreciate the concept of the album.

    I don't think it was pushed right. When the album dropped I didn't even know he had new music.

  • Steezus

    Only good song on his last album was Blurred Lines and that's because Pharrell's vocals made it.
