Did Chromatica ever really had the potential to be successful?

Recommended Posts

Despite a pretty promising start, Chromatica came and went. 
Fans point to the pandemic as the reason, as it caused Gaga & her team to cancel a lot of their promotional plans. 
But did Chromatica ever actually had the potential to be a successful era? Had there not been a pandemic, do you think it'd have been much bigger? Or would it just have been more or less the same?

Nope.

It was too niche/gay to ever have any substantial impact. The album itself was made to be played at Pride and since Pride got cancelled, it tanked. It speaks volumes that the only song that made any noise was the Ariana collar which sort of sounded like a mix between Zara Larsson's Symphony and No Tears Left to Cry.

The album wasn't particularly radio-friendly and more club-oriented. This type of music also isn't particularly big in the US. It may have been more successful across Europe but even here it just wasn't embraced much. 911, for example had the TikTok meme and it did exactly NOTHING on the charts and tanked.

The album didn't have the catchy pop melodies that Gaga was once known for.

I'm confused... Chromatica WAS successful. It debuted at #1, had a #1 single, won a grammy, got good reviews... 

This thread is probably just to fill up quota for the forum...like any other recent threads have been.

If she hadn't been so lazy, it would've been more successful.

All because of Ariana though.

Some of y'all are really comparing "more performances/promo" with "more success" No amount of promo would've made Chromatica's sound more trendy, and while Stupid Love or Rain on Me might've had

Thanks to Bradley Cooper and a movie that had one of the most ruthless promo campaigns in recent history, yes.
