Robin Thicke’s ‘Paula’ Sells Poorly Overseas
Robin Thicke is doing everything he can to show his love for his estranged wife Paula Patton. And his most recent grand gesture, the release of ‘Paula,’ an album created in her honor, really puts his heart on his sleeve. Unfortunately, hardly anyone is appreciating the effort.
‘Paula’ has entered the Official U.K. Chart, selling a dismal 530 copies. And just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse, reports from Australia say that less than 55 units were sold in the country.
In its first week, ‘Paula’ sold 24,000 units in the U.S.. Considering the undeniable success of ‘Blurred Lines’ last year (177,000 units sold when it debuted), this is definitely a low point in Robin’s career. But the singer is going with his heart on this one and is set to reunite with Paula and hopefully get the support of fans along the way.
Prior to these figures, Robin has been on a mission to get his wife back. Videos ‘Get Her Back’ and ‘Still Madly Crazy’ tug at the heart strings as they feature touching moments of the couple’s romance. He also dedicated his ‘Forever Love’ performance at the 2014 BET Awards to her.
