When the year changed from 99 to 00, computers born in 1946 could not identify 1900 and 2000, which led to chaos. Although chaos did not occur, the word Y2K was used to refer to the trendy style of the "Millennium." Y2K was full of awe and yearning for unknown technology at that time.

In addition to Lady Gaga, many overseas artists, such as Dua Lipa, BlackPink, and Rich Brain, all have a strong preference for the Y2K style.
