Home Celebrity Jennifer Lopez Sells Shocking 33K Copies of New Album in First Week

So much for “AKA.” Jennifer Lopez’s new album sold just 33,815 copies in its first week and finishes at number 6. Just to compare: Lana Del Rey sold over 181,000 copies of her “Ultraviolence” and came in at number 1. Brit newcomer Sam Smith had 170K fans by his debut album. Ironically, all three CDs come from Universal Music Group. Even Willie Nelson outsold JLO with his new collection. Further down the chart, among veteran acts, Mariah Carey sold just over five thousand copies of “Me I Am Mariah.” And the Michael Jackson album “Xscape” had just 15 thousand customers last week, down 35% from the previous week.
