Albums are not "forgotten" or "remembered". Hit songs can be though. Most people don't listen to album, especially nowadays which is why even when an artist debuts with 200k copies sold, it's considered impressive.

 

The Fame, coupled to The Fame Monster is Lady Gaga's best project for most people and her most famous one too. 

 

An album can be dated and sell. It can be trash and sell too (Not talking about TF). Selling all of this in 2020 is great though. It means that even if the album sounds old, people love to go back to Gaga's old music. The nostalgia effect is strong. Don't we all love The Fame and The Fame Monsters ? They might not be fresh but they're both great for a throwback. Found myself listening to Alejandro and Speechless the other day.

Liddos stream the fame because they cant bear to listen to Chromatica ( of course I understand them and that's why its not even platinum in the US) :deadbanana4:

People like artifacts.

 

Why do you think museums are so popular?

Most people don't take museum displays home or have it accessible to them wherever they are but good try I guess. 

 

OT: Timeless album!

An album that shifted and redefined pop music? Not surprised here, classic territory behaviour

It's her best album and has her most hits that people still wanna listen to :clap3:

 

Glad it's doing well. It's so underrated by her own fans, it's crazy.
