    Yes that’s what I said. TS might go #1 it seems that the vinyls and CDs she signed might put her above the 120k she needs: “The real fight, however, may not come from a new release but from Taylor Swift’s Fearless (Taylor’s Version), via Republic. Vinyl pre-orders are shipping for this week’s chart, along with the signed CDs that were offered for 72 hours last week.” Sadly, this is the current state of the industry if your record is not going to be big on streaming. You gotta make up with physical copies. Seems like Gaga and Tony didn’t do that. All the alternate versions are sold out on her website. So my guess is that they released only 35k lol?

    The alternative covers were only 4k(4 variants of 1k).

    Yeah I guess that’s a low number of special editions to release. But anyway, I guess they should be expecting these low numbers then.

    Hate USA monsters, hope the 60 Minutes interview this sunday might give a boost. Plus it looks so emotional.

    I honestly shed a little tear watching the interview with Zane Lowe. The sales aren’t important for this album. It goes a lot deeper than that. This isn’t about money and they never expected this to have huge sales. The limited edition covers were also available globally so they didn’t even generate 4K sales for the US.

    Since the very begining we all knew this album wouldn’t rely on acclaim nor sales, but on narrative and campaign, and it seems to be on point right now, their teams seem to have had enough time to get everything well planned

    Yeah, we kinda knew it was never gonna go #1.

    YES. The important thing is that it might actually win a Grammy.

    Reasons it won’t go #1 :

    1) Dawn of Chromatica remix came waay to close. Even Taylor knew she had to space out her projects.

    (I’m not saying the inevitable because it’s there… but there is no way that project wasn’t supposed to get released in August)

    2) MET Gala promo

    “Shallow” never went #1 during that period.

    “Joanne” never even charted

    “The Fame” never went #1

    “The Fame Monster” never went #1

    Hell “Bad Romance” didn’t even went #1

    “Love For Sale” (album) is going to be a Lady Gaga project

    **None of her most important wins never go #1. The important thing is, they promote the sh*t out of it (similarly) and move forward from it.

    I don’t think they had enough time. The fans are out of money 🙁

    I think if I’m not mistaken they released vinyls that are going to be shipped next year from the remix 🙁

    Remix came way too close. Pretty shocked they didn’t gave it a space of at least 5 months.

    If they knew this project was happening. They should’ve builded it up months prior and focused on this project. Again fans don’t have that much money to spend in a short span of time 🙁

    They were literally weeks apart.

    It was a collection of stuff.

    Exactly.

    Any time I have dipped into Gaga’s online fanbase I’m always shocked at how rude and entitled they can be. They don’t seem to understand or appreciate her as an artist at all. I’m talking generally here of course but she grew and evolved hugely as an artist and person but her fanbase didn’t.

    YES. This too. They need to appreciate and understand her and everything she does. She’s grew and evolved as an artist.

    Anyways, let’s hope the movie hype carries it for a better longevity. People just need to listen to the album. It’s a good album.

    Who else caught 60 Minutes tonight? The segment: The Final Act, gave us a look into Tony Bennett’s fight with Alzheimers was so incredibly poignant and tough to watch!

    Does anyone here know when CBS will be broadcasting the televised version of Bennett/Gaga’s performance at Radio City?!

    With how this album was released and its subsequent awareness to his reality and televised performance coming up, will Love for Sale make a bigger Grammy splash than initially thought?

    Well I bawled watching that. Whewww! God bless him. It really blows my mind that he can remember lyrics and music yet not remember playing to thousands a day later. Alzheimer’s is so scary and nobody really wants to talk about it so it remains even scarier  they are doing a great public service by speaking out about it. Gaga really is an amazing person.
