It’s a jazz album, it should be lucky to debut in the top 5 because not many people listen to it :toofunny:

It won't be in the top 5.

Where is she when we need her:

to redeem yourself you can buy 1, buy 2. But what you should really do is buy 20.

Love For Sale is amazing, and I can't wait for her to do more jazz. It's a great album. She's never looked more beautiful or sounded better. But if some fans aren't into it that's fine, and trying to

Only 2k in streaming. :toofunny:

I have hope the album will serve longevity and reach #1 on a week when one of the promo concerts is released.

I mean it was expected. it’s a jazz album like it won’t do numbers and these are good sales for a jazz album

Yup...it's good for a jazz album. Add in the change in how they do the charts and I'm not shocked, either. That said, I thought it would do around 60-70k simply due to monsters turning out and it being Tony's last album....but a lot of lms just aren't into jazz. I suppose it's still possible, though, as the very early HDD predictions can often be off by quite a bit. I think they initially predicted Taylor's Evermore to do like 100k less than it actually did.

I wish the Netflix special on Tony's final concert with Gaga had dropped this week. That absolutely would have helped the sales numbers. Also, this might be the sort of album that does better as the week goes on...a lot of print versions of media outlets which cater to an older audience (more open to jazz) will probably have reviews in their Sunday edition.

All we had to do is include a BTS feature and we would've had #1 secure.

Someone get BTS on the phone IMMEDIATELY

This doesn't surprise. C2C had the novelty element going for it. This was really just for Gaga. 

It was more for Tony, but yeah...I think Gaga just wanted to make Tony happy rather than dominate the charts (although I'm guessing she also wanted to do well in the charts, too, for him). To be fair, 40k is good for a jazz album (there just isn't much of an audience for jazz now, unfortunately)...especially with the change in how the charts are done...but I did think it would do a bit more due to little monsters and it being Tony's last album.

Not surprising but its still sad. This just goes to show how little taste today's society has, to snub such an immaculate album is truly a travesty.

Can Gaga do an internship at Taylor's to learn how to mass sign copies. I can't believe Taylor is going #1 with just vinyls and signed copies

wellll, we never had a chance for #1, but this is... :bradley:

But also, I think that 60 Minutes interview tomorrow will help with a target audience that's not into social media promo, so hopefully the prediction is revised upwards mid-week :huntyga:

It's not that bad considering it's just a jazz album, sad thing is they'll be one of the albums with more sales but since it lacks streaming they'll drop positions. 

Curious to see how much it sells WW in it's first week too, I've bought like 20 copies of the album :messga:

I think it's sad that jazz in general just doesn't have much of an audience nowadays. I remember Esperanza Spalding discussed how jazz was basically dying in an interview a few years ago and people sort of made fun of her slash said she was being melodramatic...but she wasn't.

The new charting rules play a part, but most jazz albums just don't sell very strongly. 40k is actually pretty good all in all, when you leave out that it's Tony's last album, etc.
