Robin Thicke is no doubt singing the blues. All seemed to be well in the world of Robin a year ago at this time- the singer was riding high off his insanely popular track Blurred Lines and Thicke’s stock had never been so high. For a moment he was the top artist in the game. Fast forward to summer 2014 and Robin is singing a different tune. The singer released his follow-up album to last years Blurred Lines just last weeks and the result was…tragic.
If you recall, Robin was caught red-handed in the midst of a juicy cheating scandal this past fall and was immediately exiled by his then wife Paula Patton. Thicke immediately began back-pedaling and attempted to win his wife back. The singer was so determined to win her back he named this new album after the actress. Unfortunately for Robin, the album has tanked.
The 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! In the U.S., Thicke’s new album landed at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 with sales of 24,000!
Hopefully the singer has a plan to pull his career and marriage out of the gutter!
