Robin Thicke - More Trouble For Robin Thicke As Album Bombs In Australia

Robin Thicke is facing embarrassment Down Under after his new album sold fewer than 54 copies in Australia in its first week of release.

The singer's new record, titled Paula, failed to break into the country's ARIA Top 500 chart after it hit shelves last week (ends06Jul14).

Limited sales data is recorded for albums which fail to make the chart, but the figures show Paula shifted only a handful of copies.

The news comes after the record flopped in the U.K., reportedly selling just 530 units to scrape into the charts at number 200, and in Canada, where Paula was bought by just 550 fans.

The album has fared slightly better in the U.S. where it sold around 25,000 copies to reach number nine on the Billboard 200 chart this week (beg07Jul14).

The numbers are a stark contrast to Thicke's hugely successful 2013 album Blurred Lines, which debuted at number one in the U.S. and Britain, and won a Grammy Award nomination in the Best Pop Vocal Album category.
