UPDATE TUESDAY AFTER MIDNIGHT: “AKA” finally appeared on the iTunes chart at number 29 around 2am. It’s an inauspicious  start.

EARLIER: Do I know what’s going on? Not all the time. I do not know why Jennifer Lopez’s “AKA” album, set for release tomorrow, is not listed on iTunes. It doesn’t exist. That’s a bad sign. Where the heck is it? “AKA” isn’t even listed in the iTunes search engine. Is Capitol Records advertising it? Not there.

“AKA” is ranked at number 63 on amazon.com. That’s also not good. All the rest of tomorrow’s big releases are ranked in the top 10 thanks to advance orders. “AKA” is lacking in that area.

Lopez’s last album was a bust. This was supposed to be a comeback. But considering Mariah Carey’s problems with her new album, Lopez has reason to worry.

It does seem that even core fans are not turning up for the divas. It’s a little like Tom Cruise’s problem with “Edge of Tomorrow.” They’ve done the same thing over and over. It’s finally become a bore to the public. All talented people– but they’re not reinventing themselves.

Look for “AKA” to do even worse than Carey’s “Me I Am Mariah.” The gravy train stops here. For Lopez, it’s even harder than for Carey since she’s not really a, um, singer. She’s more of a performer.

Who’s going to land big tomorrow? Lana Del Rey. Who’d a thunk it? Her “Ultraviolence” album is already number 1 on iTunes.
