Thicke sells 530 copies of record

Robin Thicke's new album is named after his estranged wife

Robin Thicke's album - named after his estranged wife - has failed to make an impression in the UK.

The star has sold just 530 copies of Paula - his ode to his childhood sweetheart Paula Patton - in its first week, reported The Guardian.

The record, which has entered the charts at number 200, has performed far worse that Robin's hit Blurred Lines, which shifted more than 25,000 copies in its first seven days.

Robin and 2 Guns star Paula separated earlier this year after nine years of marriage, but the singer hasn't given up on their romance.

As well as naming his latest album Paula, the lead single Get Her Back is apparently about his mission to rekindle their relationship. He has also publicly declared his love for Paula on stage.

Robin, 37, recently told New York's Hot 97 radio station that his ex hasn't heard his album.

"She's only heard a few songs and I don't think she wants to hear it right now. I can't speak for her, but I think space is an important part of any healing process," he said.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

You feel optimistic and for good reason. An admirer has been trying to win your heart. All this attention is flattering. If you're single, keep playing hard to get. The more you resist, the more they'll persist. Are you already in a relationship? Start pursuing a cherished dream. Fulfilling your heart's desire will make you a better partner and friend. Dwelling on what might have been will just make you bitter. Take a risk. It's better to try and fail than be paralysed by fear.More
