Andrea Bocelli has debuted atop the Billboard 200 album chart for the first time in his career, with his 26th charting album, Si. It’s also his first Classical No. 1 album in 10 Years, both the Classical Crossover Albums chart and the overall Classical Albums chart. On top of that, Si is a mostly all-Italian-language album, making it one of the few non-English albums to hit No. 1, ever!
Si, is album of original material that sees Andrea Bocelli teaming up with a host of well-known figures including Ed Sheeran, Josh Groban and the soon to be welcome Matteo Bocelli, Andrea’s son. And the deluxe edition of the record includes songs sung in Italian, Spanish, English, French and even Mandarin, which makes the music accessible to millions (if not billions) of people all around the world.
