Before Shakira, Julieta Venegas, even Enrique Iglesias, Laura Pausini was making waves from her native Italy, toward Spain, and eventually was a very successful international artist. Having made a big impact in Latin America, Pausini recorded in Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French and English.
Despite not ever breaking North America, Laura did well for herself. Billboard magazine celebrated her tenth anniversary with a cover story. This month, she releases a greatest hits set, which follows her first from 2003, 20 - Greatest Hits.
To celebrate her twenty years in the music industry, she will embark on a tour of the same name. She is planning to stop by New York and Miami come March, 2014.
The set sees her singing with Kylie Minogue, featured on its first single, James Blunt, Alejandro Sanz, Miguel Bose, Michael Buble, Ray Charles, Andrea Bocelli, Lara Fabian and Marc Anthony, who is featured on the set's second single.
The album drops on November 12th internationally, and 19th worldwide.
