Robin Thicke's new album Paula sells fewer than 54 copies in Australia

Robin Thicke's new album Paula has performed disastrously in Australia. The star's latest record missed out on the ARIA Top 500 at the end of its first week on sale, selling fewer than 54 copies.

A Blondie compilation album charted at number 500 after shifting 54 copies, but exact sales figures are not registered for albums charting outside of the Top 500. Thicke's 2013 album Blurred Lines charted at number four in Australia, following the success of the title track earlier in the year.

Paula also failed to make an impact on the charts in the UK after selling just 530 copies. The album entered the UK Albums Chart at number 200. The album is named after Thicke's estranged wife Paula Patton, who split from the singer after nine years in February.

Thicke's album campaign has focused on winning back his former partner, with the lead single being 'Get Her Back'.
