Following their highly acclaimed debut collaboration, "Cheek to Cheek" in 2014, the duo embarked on a heartfelt journey to pay tribute to the timeless jazz standards of the revered American composer, Cole Porter.

The creation of "Love for Sale" spanned from 2018 to early 2020, with Bennett and Gaga pouring their passion and musical prowess into reimagining Porter's classics. Their interpretations breathe new life into these beloved songs, showcasing their incredible vocal chemistry and deep appreciation for the genre. The album resonated with audiences worldwide, captivating the hearts of listeners with its soulful melodies and timeless lyrics.

For Gaga, the album became her tenth top-ten record on the Billboard 200, solidifying her position as a consistent chart-topper. Meanwhile, Bennett, an iconic figure in the music industry, extended his record for the longest span of top-ten albums by any living artist, an impressive feat spanning an incredible 59 years. His first top-ten album, "I Left My Heart in San Francisco," was released back in 1962.
