Some truly good news today (other than Uzo Aduba’s Emmy nomination!): Robin Thicke’s sniveling apology album, purposely named after and “dedicated” to his estranged wife, Paula Patton, didn’t work. Did it gain him a lot of attention? Yes, and especially press-wise. Did it actually get him a hit album? No, it did not. Turns out, sometimes not all press is good press.

Want specifics? Here are the (cringe-y) stats:

  • In the U.S., on the Billboard “200,” Paula entered the charts at No. 9, with 24,000 sold. For some perspective, Blurred Lines sold 177,000 at the No. 1 spot.
  • Over in the U.K., Paula only sold 530 in its first week, entering the Official U.K. albums chart at No. 200, according to Billboard. (That’s “just 2% of the sales of Thicke’s previous album, [Blurred Lines].”)
  • In Australia, Paula sold just 54 copies. 54. Copies.
  • But what about in his hometown? In Canada, Paula only sold 550 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

In conclusion, Australia hates Robin Thicke the most.
