Robin Thicke Departs Australian Top 500

Robin Thicke ‘Paula’ has dropped out of the Top 500 album chart in Australia after its second week on sale.

Thicke’s lacklustre performing album scrapped into the chart at no. 207 last week on just 158 sales but this week tumbles almost 300 places to disappear from the chart after just seven days on sale.

‘Paula’ needed just 60 sales to land at 500 on last week’s chart which indicates that the album has sold at best around 200 copies in Australia after 14 days on sale.

Thicke’s ‘Paula’ album has also been dogged by lack of sales in the USA and UK.

Ironically, Weird Al Yankovich’s ‘Mandatory Fun’ with its pisstake on Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ titled ‘Word Crimes’ looks set to debut in the USA at number one this week.

Thicke recorded ‘Paula’ as a plea for his estranged wife Paula Patton to return to him. Patton was reported to be infuriated by the public attention their relationship has generated from the album and is even more determined to divorce. The single ‘Get Her Back’ obviously did not work.
