Jennifer Lopez mounted a massive campaign in promotion of the February 16-releasedThis Is Me…Now‘  – her first LP since 2014’s ‘A.K.A.’

Buoyed by the lead single, the Latto-assisted ‘Can’t Get Enough,’ as well as its title track and follow-up ‘Rebound,’ ‘Now’ – the conceptual follow-up to 2002’s ‘This Is Me…Then‘ – saw its chart battle armed with the support of a Prime Video musical film of the same name that aided many of its tracks with music videos.

And while the ‘Now’ singles failed to impact the Hot 100 ahead of their parent project’s arrival to digital shelves, that didn’t stop buzz around the set as it quickly soared to the top of real-time sales outlets around the world shortly after its release.

Look inside to see how that out-of-the-box success is predicted to translate to chart placement.

Before her 2024 musical adaptation of the cult classic ‘Mean Girls’ stormed theaters on January 12, the movie’s star – Renee Rapp – had Pop music lovers wrapped around her finger with the soundtrack’s catchy lead single ‘Not My Fault‘ featuring GRAMMY-winning rapstress Megan Thee Stallion.

And while the song was greeted with ample critical buzz, it’s not quite seen that success mirrored commercially as it’s yet to crack the Hot 100 (as of time of this report).

The bid to change that status came this week when Stallion and Rapp unwrapped a peek at the other side of the lens of the cut’s Mia Barnes-directed music video.
