Robin Thicke's recent promo run for his new album Paula got pretty ugly for the 37-year-old singer, who not only named the project after his estranged wife Paula Patton, but also dedicated the whole album to her in hopes that she would take him back. Because that's the best way to convince a woman of your commitment after allegedly cheating on her.
Fans weren't buying his apology at store shelves, with Paula debuting this week at No. 9 with 24,000 copies sold. This compared to his release last year, Blurred Lines, which debuted at No. 1 with 177,000 copies sold. Granted, Thicke had his smash hit title-track to boost sales. Still, this would be a good time to toss the saying "there is no such thing as bad publicity" out the window.
On a happier note, Trey Songz's new album Trigga debuted at No. 1 with 105,000 copies sold, which makes it his second consecutive album to top the charts. Chapter V sold 135,000 in its debut week two years ago.
