No one wants to hear you, Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke's ode to his estranged wife, actress Paula Patton, isn't exactly melting hearts anywhere.

His inappropriately-titled new album, Paula, sold less than 55 copies in Australia. The follow-up to last year's smash, Blurred Lines, it was designed to win her back.

Thicke and the missus separated in February amid cheating rumours,after being married for nine years.

Australian media reported that the under-whelming album, which sometimes veered into Too Much Information territory, failed to grab a spot at the country's ARIA Top 500 album charts. 

Currently at Number 500 is a Blondie compilation, which sold 54 copies. This means that Thicke could have sold anywhere between 0 and 53 copies.

The Canadian crooner didn't fare very well in other parts of the world either. He only managed to shift 530 copies in the UK in the first week.

It did a little better in the US, where he sold 26,000 copies - which is still nothing compared to the 177,000 he sold last year.

Hmmm, we wonder if Paula has bought a copy.

Thicke's Australian numbers are especially dismal after he peaked at the top of the Australian charts at this time last year - with Blurred Lines.
