Robin Thicke's Album 'Paula' Flops Only 530 Copies Sold in UK
According to BET Centric, Robin Thicke's latest album Paula didn't do much to mend his marriage nor did it move fans to purchase. Released on June 30, the album---which was dedicated to his estranged wife, actress Paula Patton---debuted with less than stellar sales, selling a disappointing 25,000 copies in the first week of its release. That’s a far cry from 2013’s Blurred Lines, which sold 177,000 copies. The album’s horrible performance was felt overseas, as it sold a paltry 530 copies in the UK, reaching no. 200 on the Official UK Chart. Promoted as a baby-I’m-so-sorry-take-me-back musical love letter of sorts, the project’s lead single “Get Her Back” also fell short of expectations, reaching only no. 82 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Sidebar: People are tired of hearing Robin beg for Paula back. He comes across as so insincere to me. He had a good thing and took it for granted. So proud of Paula Patton for thinking more of herself and leaving him. I think now that this is a certified flop he can really try and win her back for real, for real like in private not for the world to see. Maybe she can take him seriously now. I don't feel sorry for him at all. Do better Robin.
