When Robin Thicke released his sixth studio album, "Blurred Lines," on July 30, 2013, he debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200, selling 177,000 copies in the U.S. during the first week. Less than a year later, the story of Robin Thicke is very different.

Having released his seventh LP, "Paula," on July 1, Thicke sold a mere 25,000 copies during the first week, an 86 percent decrease from its predecessor. What's even crazier is that according to The Guardian, only 530 copies of "Paula" sold in the U.K. And yet, despite the 98 percent drop in sales from the 25,981 copies that "Blurred Lines" moved, "Paula" still managed to land at the 200 spot on the Official U.K. Chart.

At the very least, Thicke can always run another #AskThicke Twitter Q&A session to help him cheer up.
