JLo’s This is Me…Now Suffering ‘Career Low’ And Release ‘Can’t Be Saved’ Despite Long-List of A-list Cameos

JLo's latest album was supposed to be the musical comeback fans were hoping for. However, critics have blasted her new album and film This In Me... Now: A Love Story as a $20 million dollar 'self-financed and resolutely, painfully autobiographical' vanity project.

JLo, 54, dropped her ambitious project, alongside a giant press tour, to "record low" numbers.

The 16-track LP has features like rapper Latto and marks her first full-length album in a decade.

Meanwhile, the film to go alongside it features a host of famous faces in fun cameo roles, including her husband Ben Affleck, Post Malone, Keke Palmer, Sofia Vergara, Fat Joe, and Jane Fonda.

The high-production value flick has a full storyline inspired by J-Lo's life, as the songs from the album are woven around it.

Unfortunately, none of this could save J-Lo's comeback from shockingly low reception upon its debut.

On Spotify, many of the tracks have not surpassed 40,000 streams and lacks any chart-topping singles aside from Can't Get Enough, which has 4 million streams.

After that, the dropoff is huge, with no other song on the album crossing 1 million streams.

On the visual album, The Guardian wrote: "It’s not the act of raw honesty it thinks it is and it’s certainly not a successful visual album; Lopez’s new songs all sound hopelessly middle-of-the-road..."

And on the album itself, the X page Pop Stuff posted: "Jennifer Lopez’s comeback album 'This Is Me…Now' debuted with 14k streams on Spotify.

"It became the lowest-debuting album by any main pop artist in history on the platform."

One fan commented: "Her career is over why is she flopping like im genuinely concerned."

Another wrote: "This is insanely embarrassing omg."

A third wrote: "Our fave Jloot is sooooo over."

"This is embarrassing bye," wrote a fourth.

The album comes 22 years after she released This Is Me... Then, her third studio album during her initial romance with her now-husband Affleck.

The Aughts power couple eventually split before reuniting and officially tying the knot in 2022. 

While J-Lo made a splash with a Super Bowl commercial featuring her man (and Tom Brady), her career took a social media hit last month.

Lopez appeared alongside Ayo Edebiri on Saturday Night Live and claimed Ayo "tearfully"

apologized after trashing her vocal skills as "one long scam" on an old podcast.

In a new interview with Variety, JLo opened up about the incident with Edebiri, who Lopez says had a long apology for her.

"She was mortified and very sweet. She came to my dressing room and apologized with tears in her eyes, saying how terrible it was that she had said those things.

"She felt really badly and loved my performance because we had just done my soundcheck and she actually got to hear me perform," Lopez recalled of Edebiri, who also said, 'sorry, it was so awful of me.'"

Fans felt J-Lo's statement was a little "extra" given her star power.

One X user wrote: "Anyone who gets ayo edebiri to the verge of tears should be locked up and actually jlo should apologize to her for being a bad singer."

Another wrote: "Jlo could have just said she got and apologize that’s it. Not all that extra sh**."

Last month J-Lo released the music video for her lead single song Can't Get Enough.

In the music video, Lopez sings about her love for husband, Affleck, while male dancers grab at her in the street.

The Jenny From The Block singer collaborated with rapper Latto with both artists donning matching red outfits.

She appeared in one scene wearing a red satin bra, and another scene wearing a nude-toned bra adorned with faux nipples.

The singer talks about her sex life with her husband in the lyrics.

No shade (well...maybe a little) but I thought her album was boring, and the subject matter showcased in the Prime Video film was about as deep as a pond. To me it felt like she was playing the victim in regards to her relationships, where it was always the men she got with that were the problem.

Once she seeks therapy, learns to love herself, and embraces her inner child (after singing and dancing in the rain like a Puerto Rican Fred Astaire) the right man of the moment falls into her lap, and she lives happily ever after like some DIsney fairy tale written by the writers of Morbius and Madame Web.

Now the true gag will be if we'll actually get the true tea from the unmentioned men she shaded in the film, like Marc, Ojani, Cris, A. Rod, Drake, Casper and the countless others she played relationship hopscotch with throughout her career.
