Robin Thicke's Paula Bombs Hard in the UK

Selling only 530 copies...
If Robin Thicke thought he had a bomb in his new album Paula in the US, it's nothing compared to how poorly it sold in the UK. The Guardian reports that the album, which sold 25,000 copies in the US, sold a mere 530 copies in its first week in the United Kingdom. To give an idea of how poor that is, it's about 2% of what Blurred Lines sold in its first week in the country.
The album is named after his estranged wife Paula Patton and is inspired by his attempts to woo her back, with songs like "Get Her Back" and "Love Can Grow Back." The couple separated after nine years of marriage in February after rumors spread that he was unfaithful.
