Andrea Bocelli, the famed Italian singer, will be releasing his latest album, “Passione,” on the 29th of January. For this, his 13th studio album,  he collaborated with big names in American pop music who still have managed to maintain a Latin flavour in their style; namely Jenifer Lopez and Nelly Furtado. With the latter Bocelli performed a duet of the Antonio Carlos Jobim classic, “Corcovado.”

This version of the standard is unique and the artists hand it well while still retaining their respective signature sound. The decision to have the vocals of each artist interchanging continually is an innovation that works.

    Funny… because just last week I was thinking about Nelly, and how it would be great if she did an album of Bossa covers. You know… because her being a Portuguese-Canadian. I still think she should do a Brazilian influenced record but I’ll settle for a bossa duet on another artist’s recording.
