    present progressive + for()

    She's trying to make a comeback with her first album for twenty years.

    I know we use "for" with present perfect progressive sentences e.g. I have been waiting here for 2 hours. But here it is used with present progressive sentence so I'm confused. Could you help me in this regard?

    I believe it should read in 20 years, not for 20 years.
