Eros Ramazzotti’s Latest Album Perfetto - Debuts at No. 1 in 13 Countries
May 27, 2015 – Italian singer/songwriter and international superstar Eros Ramazzotti’s latest album, Perfetto, got off to an incredible start this month, dominating iTunes charts all around the world.
The album, released through Universal Music on May 12, 2015 has so far reached No. 1 in 13 countries, including Italy, Switzerland, Hungary and Luxembourg, No. 2 in Spain and Belgium, No.3 in Germany and the Netherlands, No.8 in Argentina and has landed in the Top 20 in 42 countries including France, Finland, Israel and many more. In some countries the record came out in two editions, Spanish and Italian, with both charting highly in Spain, where it entered simultaneously at No. 2 and No. 5 and in Mexico, entering at No. 8 and No. 9 respectively.
Including hit single “Alla Fine Del Mondo”, the new single “Il Tempo Non Sente Ragione” and 12 other songs, Perfetto follows the worldwide success of NOI, Eros’ last album which has so far been certified Quadruple-Platinum in Italy, Triple-Platinum in Russia, Platinum in Spain and Switzerland and Gold in Germany, France, Russia, Belgium, Austria, Romania, Hungary, Czech Republic and Venezuela.
Speaking of the album, Eros said: “When I thought about the album's title, I wanted a universally understood word that reached beyond the language in which it was uttered. I immediately thought of Perfetto. When you finish even the most challenging job and look back at what was done, you adjust it a little bit and then you say 'Perfect!' That's pretty much how it went."
The album is themed on having a positive view on life. Love in all its forms and expressions, elevates the soul to perfection and, in Ramazzotti’s words, "liberates it from the world".
Eros Ramazzotti’s distinctive voice and wide-ranging pop/rock style encompasses everything from adult contemporary to classical crossover. He initially established himself as a chart-topping pop star in the mid-'80s, continuing his run of huge hit albums and songs ever since. In September, Eros will be celebrating his 30 year career by starting his world tour in Italy, performing across three continents until summer 2016.
