So far, the album has just sold 530 copies – and it’s ranking at 200 in the UK album chart.

Robin has confessed that ‘Paula’ is dedicated to his ex-wife Paula Patton – and has declared that he wouldn’t be averse to getting back to her.

It’s something of a surprise that the new album’s doing so badly, as PR from the Thicke camp has been coming thicke – sorry, thick – and fast recently.

First of all there was that interesting Twitter Q&A (just Google #AskThicke to see what people wanted to know), then there was the performance of ‘Forever Love’ at the BET Awards. Which was dedicated to Paula. Just in case she’d forgotten about him.

However, the album’s faring better in the US – 25,000 copies have been sold so far.
