I'm probably missing something crazy simple, hopefully someone here can clear this up for me. I have a simple component as follows:

    <aura:component implements="flexipage:availableForAllPageTypes,flexipage:availableForRecordHome" access="global">
        <aura:attribute name="PricebookEntryRecord" type="String"/>
        <aura:attribute name="PricebookEntry" type="Object"/>
        <force:recordData aura:id="PricebookRecordLoader"

The component is passed a record ID from a separate component which is loaded into {!v.PricebookEntryRecord}. When I view the component using some sample data on a lightning page, nothing happens. I don't even see any feedback from handleRecordUpdated in my dev console.

However, if I hardcode the record ID of the sample I'm using into the force:recordData recordId field and refresh the same lightning page from before, everything works just fine and I see the expected logging in my console. I've already confirmed that there is a recordId loaded into {!v.PricebookEntryRecord} as it displays when called, so I'm totally lost as to what the issue is.

Got it! Special thanks /u/Reddit_Account__c for helping get to the bottom of this. I was dealing with a race condition in the component that was invoking this component. The record ID being referenced in the above code is pulled from a Lookup field on a record and needed to be loaded in before calling the above cmp. To get things working, I needed to invoke this cmp via a change handler as opposed to on initialization of the original cmp.

Relevant documentation for any other greenhorns like myself:
