Robin Thicke may have been trying to get his wife back with his latest break-up album, Paula, but the way the record is selling, he may soon be crying for his mommy..
The US singer’s new record, Paula, a desperate plea to his estranged wife Paula Patton, has squarely bombed in the UK, reaching only number 200 in the charts after a full week of release.
Fans remain unimpressed, with reports suggesting that just 530 copies of the album have been sold in the UK to date.
The Official Charts Company was unable to confirm or deny this figure, while Thicke’s record label is yet to respond to a request for comment. source
Paula has fared slightly better with estimated sales of a few thousand copies for its opening week in the US, a poor figure considering the size of his supposed fanbase.
In contrast, Thicke’s fifth album, Blurred Lines, hit number one in countries worldwide in July 2013 and shifted 731,000 copies in the US.
