Another piece is added to the mosaic of the Festival of the Italian Song – more commonly known as Festival di Sanremo – which reaches the seventy-second edition and today is the only one that will take place in presence despite the current pandemic situation.
It’s needless to make presentations, the whole world knows them already: Simone Giani, Luca De Gregorio and Mattia Vitale are the minds behind the project that led Italy to be recognised worldwide, boast 8 billion overall streaming on platforms and will join the line-up of the emblematic event, bringing groove and dance in the first evening, on February 1st.
The announcement was made by the Festival presenter Amadeus, who was thrilled to have a youth wave alongside the iconic names in Italian music:
“Dear friends, I am happy to announce that another musical pearl is added to the seventy-second edition of the Festival. On February 1st we will dance with MEDUZA, a band that makes the whole world groove with dance music, they’re popular and well known, they’re all Italian guys and we’re happy about that.” It’s with these words that he made the news public and it has been very well received by radios, fans and fellow artists.
The three also have another reached goal to celebrate; in fact, a few days ago their last release “Tell It To My Heart” in collaboration with singer Hozier, officially released on October 29, 2021 on Island Records and that the trio brought on their last American tour, reached number one on the US Dance Radio Chart.
Played 467 times in just six days – from 16 to 22 January 2022 – it sent to the second place the hit of Joel Corry with Mabel “I Wish” and to the third “The Motto” of Tiesto and Ava Max, with its vibes dance fresh and immediately traceable to the Lombard trio, combined with the warm and enveloping voice of the Irish singer.
Impossible not to expect it: the song has now over 48 million streams, of which one million was gained only in the first 24 hours, and already was part of Global Charts, such as the Top 200 Apple Music in 25 countries and in the Shazam one, along with a million views on Tiktok.
More and more satisfaction comes for the three Italians, who keep Made in Italy high all over the world, starting from their country, where the musical cultural roots meet – for the second time, after The Bloody Beetroots in 2014 – youth and the EDM wave.
