Robin Thicke’s new album sold less than 54 copies in Australia — or, .000002% of the country’s entire population

Earlier this week, we reported on the dismal sales numbers for Robin Thicke’s new album, Paula. Turns out, the 26,000 copies sold in the U.S. and 530 in the U.K. were actually quite good — compared to Thicke’s performance in Australia.

As News.com.au reports, Thicke’s Paula sold no more than 54 copies in Australia during its first week of release. The exact total is unknown, but the album failed to place in the country’s ARIA Top 500 album charts. A Blondie compilation occupies the 500th spot after selling 54 copies, meaning Thicke sold anywhere between 0 to 53 copies.

In comparison, Thicke’s previous release, Blurred Lines, peaked at No. 1 on the Australian charts.

The news isn’t much better in Canada, where Paula sold only 550, reports ExclaimBlurred Lines, meanwhile, sold 13,000 copies and debuted at No. 1 on the Canadian charts.

Still not as big of a failure as Alex Young. I mean come on Alex, was your Dad on Growing Pains? Didn’t think so.
