Millions of people can empathize with Robin Thicke as he tries to get his wife Paula Patton to give their relationship another try. That might also be the reason why not many fans have picked up his new album dedicated entirely to his estranged partner.
People generally don't want to dwell on loves they've lost.
First week sales in the U.S. of the Interscope Records distributed Paula are expected to come in at 25,000. His previous project, Blurred Lines, moved 177,000 units during it's initial week in stores. The Guardian reports that that the U.S. figures look great compared to the U.K. charts where the album with debut at No. 200 with only 530 copies sold.
Hopefully Robin patches things up with his wife and gets back to making hit records like we know he can.
