The Singer Tries to Add A Promotional Deal With Each Copy
Last Week the "Get Her Back" singer, 37, released his bran new album titled 'Paula' -- with little results to show for it on the consumer market. In Australia, the album has no made the country's top 500 album chart.
The disappointing numbers follow similarly dismal figures from the United Kingdom. In the U.K., Thicke reportedly counted a grand total of 530 copies sold.
The sales totals are higher in the United States with 25,000 copies sold, but still fall far below his hit album from a year ago. The trouble started after his then girlfriend Paula Patton broke off the relationship they were having with each other.
Over the last year Thicke has been trying to find odd ways to tell Patton that he wants her back in his life with little success. The failed attempts have trickled over to his latest record sales being dismal on the market, and leaving fans questioning whether he still has what it takes to be a serious singer in the future.
Following the poor sales for his new album Paula, Thicke has now partnered up with 1-800-FLOWERS and is offering up a free album download with a qualifying purchase.

Billboards Keith Caulfied was interviewed by E! News over Thicke's latest drop in album sales stating that it may not have been entirely unexpected if you looked at his history.
"I am not sure what his appeal was internationally before ‘Blurred Lines,'" Caulfield said. "He really was a core R&B artist for a long time before ‘Blurred Lines' turned him into a pop star. And the song gave him an international hit single. I don't know if he was a known entity in Australia before ‘Blurred Lines.' To them in Australia, and I don't know this, they might look at him as a one-hit-wonder, like a fluke hit...He just has a lot of stuff going on and it is going to be really interesting to see what happens next."
