Yikes! Robin Thicke's album sales just hit a new low. 

Last week, the "Get Her Back" singer, 37, debuted his new album Paula—an elaborate attempt to win back his estranged wife Paula Patton—but the numbers are not pretty. In Australia, the album is reportedly absent from the country's top 500 albums chart.

An Australian news service notes that No. 500 on the list, "a Blondie compilation," counted just 54 copies sold last week, putting Thicke's Australian sales at fewer than 54. 

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.

While his sales numbers stateside are much higher than his totals abroad, Thicke is seeing a massive fall from the success of his hit 2013 album Blurred Lines

Paula bowed at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 with 24,000 copies. By contrast, Blurred Lines was certified gold and hit No. 1 on the Billboard albums chart; it sold 177,000 copies in its first week out.

The R&B crooner has yet to find a takeoff hit single in Paula the way that he did with Blurred Lines. Thicke has been releasing emotional music videos to his new tracks, but they haven't seen the same success.
