Billboard Review

January 31, 1998

If you haven’t joined the millions of people around the world who happily feast on the suave Italo-belting of Ramazzotti, then you need to catch up. This rock-edged pop chugger from his self-titled album is a good place to start. It shows him at his most magnetic, darting around the track’s crisp rhythms and limber electric guitar riffs. The Italian-language tune has been translated into English, allowing special guest Turner to wail and vamp admirably. Her voice meshes perfectly with Ramazzotti’s when they harmonize in English — leaving the listener wondering how long it will be before this international star will cut an album specifically for the American market.

Music Video

The music video was filmed in a small village near Tina’s home in the south of France. It shows Eros driving with a car to the village and Tina walking through the alleys. Later they meet each other on a big place and finish the song together.
