ROBIN THICKE’S NEW ALBUM PAULA SELLS JUST 530 COPIES IN THE UK

robin-thicke-7.7.2014.jpg

Robin Thicke‘s new album Paula sold just 530 copies in the UK this week.

For the unfamiliar, Paula is the album Robin Thicke made to win back his wife Paula Patton, who left him in the wake of a turbulent 2013 that not only featured the year’s most controversial song ‘Blurred Lines’, but – we’d wager of more pressing concern to Paula – paparazzi shots of Thicke getting familiar with the inside of a fan’s dress, and two highly embarrassing suits.

Those 530 copies equal a lowly #200 spot in the UK albums chart. Some fall from grace, when you consider that ‘Blurred Lines’ was the UK’s best-selling song of 2013.

In other Thicke news, former Arab Strap vocalist and solo artist Aidan Moffat has posted a series of tweets questioning whether ‘Blurred Lines’ is actually that bad.

Here’s Moffat’s tweets, collected:

I’m 🤬 sick of “quality” newspapers attacking Robin Thicke. “I know you want it” isn’t any kind of misogynist creed, it’s THE LANGUAGE OF FLIRTATION. Listen to the rest of the song – and if you’ve never said or never been told “I know you want it” then you’ve either never had sex or you’re a 🤬 liar.

It’s bold, it’s cocky, it’s confident, it’s 🤬 , it’s crass but it in no way suggests, hints at, or endorses 🤬 . He might be 🤬 , but his career’s been ruined by bullies who haven’t but it in no way suggests, hints at, or endorses 🤬 . He might be 🤬 , but his career’s been ruined by bullies who haven’t bothered to listen to the rest of one song.

Real misogyny is everywhere and all around, and Robin Thicke’s just a harmless 🤬 who wrote a song about trying to get off with someone in a club and said something anyone – male or female – who’s ever tried to get off with someone in a club would say. I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve said “I know you want it” to many girls in my life – or rather ”I know you want me” – and many girls have said the same to me too (when I was younger and thinner, I mean). THAT’S HOW PEOPLE SPEAK AND FLIRT. Nothing more, nothing less. Man, woman, boy, girl – and everything in between – we all say daft things to get in someone else’s pants. Fortune favours the bold. Confidence is sexy. I know you want it.

Now 🤬 grow up and fight some real battles.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that Robin Thicke won't be getting Paula Patton back any time soon by going double aluminum with this album. Chalk it up to the game bruh

    That's 🤬 up. I just skimmed this album and found about six songs that are actually alright.

    Didn't know people would hold that 🤬 with 🤬 -ass Paula against him so bad. This album is straight, sonically.

    "Lock the Door" is growing on me something serious.

    I find it funny how people are so against him for writing this album about her. I've seen people call it stalking and public harassment and all kinds of 🤬 . yet no one makes a big deal when other artists write and sing about lovers they had. so I'm wondering why the hate on robin for it. Is it because we know Paula and she isn't just a no-name regular chick? Is it because people hate him for cheating on his wife? or the "misogynistic" message he had in blurred lines?

    Most of the hate i see is coming from the same people still upset at his alleged misogyny and infidelity

    People cheat everyday, b. Chicks are his main fan base though, and a lot of them are in their feelings trying to relate to Paula

    🤬 that.


    This is straight:





    This moves like I've just seen the ghost of James Brown. NYC gets another dance anthem:





    And he pours his heart out on this:



    If this is "trash", I'd hate to see what you self-righteous negroes think is good. From an R&B standpoint, I haven't heard anything this good in about 3-4 years. I don't give a 🤬 about his failed marriage. Hell, I'd rather have him win her back, just to 🤬 around on her again to make more of this 🤬 .
