It’s been a minute since Laura Pausini made waves outside Europe (ok, more like a decade) but the Italian diva is set to grab headlines all over again by joining forces with pop legend Kylie Minogue. The ladies have collaborated on a track called “Limpido”, which serves as the lead single from Laura’s upcoming retrospective The Greatest Hits: Celebrating 20th Anniversary of Career. It will also be released in Spanish (“Limpio”) and drops September 10.
So who is Kylie’s fancy new collaborator? Think of Laura as Italy’s answer to Celine Dion. Her powerful pipes made her a superstar across Europe and prompted an unsuccessful but hugely endearing bid to conquer America in 2002 with her first and only English language album From The Inside. It didn’t reach the Hot 200 but still produced two number one club hits “Surrender” and “If That’s Love”, which are well worth checking out.
