After dismal first month sales, Tessanne Chin's Count On My Love has been named in's ignominious '15 Albums that bombed in 2014' list.

The album was named among several high-profile projects including singer Robin Thicke's Paula, Jennifer Lopez' AKA, Me. I Am by Mariah Carey, rapper 50 Cent's Animal Ambition: An Untamed Desire to Win and Corazon by Santana.

Count On My Love is Chin's major label album debut. Released July 1 by Republic Records (an affiliate of Universal Music), it sold under 7,000 copies at the end of last month.

The album is part of Chin's prize package for winning season five of the NBC talent show, The Voice.

Tumbling Down, the first single from Count On My Love, failed to chart. So too the second single, Everything Reminds Me of You, co-produced by Grammy-winning Supa Dups, Mitchum Chin and Willy Chin.

The article zoomed in on the fall from grace of 50 Cent, Santana and Mariah Carey who were multi-platinum sellers 10 years ago.

Thicke's paltry returns for Paula is also a surprise. His song, Blurred Lines, is one of the year's biggest hits.
