In the U.S., the album will open somewhere inside Billboard 200's top 10 with only 25,000 copies sold.
Robin Thicke's latest album, "Paula", is a disaster. The LP has bowed at No. 200 on the Official U.K. Chart after selling 530 copies in its first week. That's only 2% of its predecessor "Blurred Lines" which opened on the chart with 25,981 back in 2013.
Thicke's seventh studio installment, however, is expected to sell better in the U.S. It has been predicted to land somewhere inside Billboard 200's top 10 with around 25,000 sold. Still, that's considered a huge flop as "Blurred Lines" last year made its debut at No. 1 on the same chart with 177,000.
"Paula", written and produced by Thicke himself, includes 14 songs about the 37-year-old R&B singer's estranged wife Paula Patton. The album has so far spawned tracks "Get Her Back" and "Still Madly Crazy", which haven't been performing well on charts either.
