Andrea Bocelli – The Best Italian Song – Io Vivo per Lei

Andrea Bocelli – The Best Italian Song – Io Vivo per Lei –

Vivo per lei (English: “I Live for Her” or “I Live for It”) is the name of a 1995 song recorded by Italian artist Andrea Bocelli as duet with Giorgia for his album Bocelli. The song was also released as a duet with other female artists, including Marta Sánchez in Spain and Latin America, Hélène Ségara in francophone countries, Judy Weiss in German-speaking countries, and Sandy Leah Lima in Brazilian Portuguese.

The version with Marta Sánchez topped the Spanish singles chart in 1996 under the title Vivo por ella and is available on her album One Step Closer. The version with Ségara was released in December 1997 and became a hit in Belgium (Wallonia) and France where it reached number one on the charts. It was the fifth single from Ségara’s first studio album, Cœur de verre. The version with Judy Weiss was also number one in Switzerland in 1997.

In France, the song went straight to number 9 on 6 December 1997, and reached number one four weeks later, thus becoming the sixth bilingual number-one singles in France. It topped the chart for five consecutive weeks, then dropped slowly, remaining for 22 weeks in the top ten, 33 weeks in the top 50 and 42 weeks in the top 100. It was certified Platinum by the SNEP. In Belgium (Wallonia), the single debuted at number 18 on 20 December and achieved number one in its sixth week and stayed there for five weeks, then dropped and fell off the top ten after 15 weeks and the top 40 after 28 weeks. To date, it is the best-selling single for Ségara, and the second one for Bocelli (the first is “Con te partirò”).
