Jennifer Lopez Album Stalled with No Sales, Singer Will End Summer Tour Early, 7 Cancelled Shows


Things are not going well for Jennifer Lopez’s latest project.

Her album, “This is Me…Now,” is pretty much dead. The album has sold around 18,000 downloads and CDs. Another 12,000 copies can be counted from streaming.

The result of the album’s failure is that Lopez’s summer tour ticket sales are not popping. Seven dates in August have been cut for lack of interest. The tour will end on August 17th. Other dates may be affected since tickets aren’t selling well anywhere.

Monday morning quarterbacking is no consolation for the artist. But if Lopez had great opening acts and a couple of hits from the album, she would have done better. But hubris is a killer disease. The big issue is no radio play, and no club play. Lopez needs some clever remixes pronto, otherwise– as she’s indicated — this will be her last album.

One suggestion: get Marc Anthony to do a remix of one of those songs with her. It’s not like he’s hot right now, but the reunion aspect could be magic.
