Apparently, 2014 is not the year of the diva – or at least these two divas, anyway.
Earlier in June, Mariah Carey‘s latest offering, ”Me. I am Mariah … The Elusive Chanteuse,” debuted to fewer than 60,000 album sales. Jennifer Lopez‘s “A.K.A.” might barely crack half those first-week numbers when it’s released this Tuesday.
Lopez is expected to move 25,000-30,000 units in her debut week, according to early sales forecast numbers obtained by TheWrap.
The official Nielsen SoundScan estimates count the sales week through Sunday, so those final numbers are typically released the Wednesday following the week’s release.
