    That 60 minutes coverage about Tony Bennett was incredible. I didn’t know the disease had advanced this much. But the way he instantly regains his memory the moment music starts playing was miraculous. And the fact he only remembered Gaga when she joined him on stage. Just wow. So happy that music is able to stimulate his memory and help him find joy in his final moments. It was hard not to tear up while watching this, even though I’m not a fan of Jazz.

    I don’t think you have to be a fan of jazz per se to enjoy Tony singing. I left my Heart in San Francisco is an evergreen song.

    According to HDD this is set to debut at #10 with 38k, some people are considering these numbers an underperformance since C2C went #1 with 131k (sales were better back then obviously), what do you think? Can this hurt the eventual AOTY nomination and the eventual general Grammy performance?

    I’m upset the fans weren’t as engaged to make this chart higher (some are even boycotting cause gaga paid dust to chromatica). But also her release strategy was messy with too many projects in a short span of time: BTW Reimagined, Dawn of Chromatica, this album, her makeup brand, Gucci trailer and campaigns about to start.

    No, I don’t think it affects their award chances as they had 60 minutes who got a big audience, plus the upcoming specials and I’m sure some internal industry campaign. Besides their name alone is enough to be checked on nominations.

    Yes, everything @JGibson said is true. It was a MASSIVE mistake tbh. Their last project came out literally weeks apart.

    Cheek to Cheek and its last project were months almost a year apart. Same with ASIB. They should’ve just builded it up months prior.

    These are mistakes that were made months ago. That just builded up . We’re just trying to fix it.

    *It was also a collection of other technical stuff. But this is just a quick fix

    They did a mess with the promo, I agree, all the promo schedule post release.

    This makes me think they decided this release date in the optic of a Grammy campaign at the last moment with the date of 1st October, but this was probably originally scheduled for December release, when all the promo was done and it would have been a better moment for sales since it’s Xmas, especially for this genre, helping also her campaign for HOG.

    Maybe they saw it was a weak year for grammys and they tried to play this card thinking they can have a chance for AOTY, because clearly in 2023 with Adele and other big releases around, this wouldn’t have any chance, not to mention being old news.

    Not post though. Pre-release. Because for Post, I don’t think they’re even half of what they’ll be doing (in connection w/ the movie and stuff)

    I truly believe in this project. Even if it doesn’t go #1 or it debuts at #10. (despite fan-boycott) I believe that by Grammy time (LFS) this project can be in its best form.

    I meant that the promo for this album has basically been done or is scheduled after the date of release basically, whereas with C2C they promoted 2 months in advance and this is also hurted the sales in my opinion. Hope you’re right for the rest.

    This is getting some good debut numbers in Europe, considering it’s a genre not popular there:

    #5 Germany;

    #6 Uk;

    #6 France.

    #8 Italy;

    #10 Dutch.

    And mostly debuting higher than CTC did
