According to this week chart highlight from Billboard, Pop/R&B singer Jennifer Lopez will attempt to regain chart dominance with a No. 40 debut on the pop chart this Thursday (Feb. 24). The news comes on the heels of the forthcoming video premiere for her single “On The Floor” featuring rapper Pitbull, which will premiere March 3rd on Vevo.com.
Lopez will face some stiff competition in her battle up charts as Bruno Mar’s “Grenade” holds the top spot and Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” sits at No. 6. The American Idol judge last chart in 2007 with the single “Do It Well,” which peaked at no.37. “On The Floor” will be Lopez’s eighteen single to make the chart.
In related news, “On The Floor” is already making waves on iTunes. The track jumped to No. 3 spot in the U.S. behind Gaga’s “Born This Way,” and Katy Perry’s “E.T.” and a head of Rihanna’s “S&M.”
“If every single one of you goes and downloads it…we’ll make a bigger splash than EVER!!! Thank you all for always standing by me,” Lopez wrote on Twitter earlier this week.
“On The Floor” has also claimed the No. 1 spot in Greece, France, Spain and Finland, which should help for a stirring jump next week on the pop charts.
I’ve always been in love with J-Lo! She’s on her way back, this track and “Good Hit” are gonna kill the clubs and radio. “Good Hit” is actually a better song. She’s still gorgeous, still hungry and a better singer now then she was 10 years ago. KILL IT J-LO!!!
