I really enjoyed playing my rendition of Chiamami per Nome by Fedez and Francesca Michielin.
If you don’t know who Fedez is, you can read here directly from his WikiPedia page:
Federico Leonardo Lucia (born 15 October 1989), known by his stage name Fedez (Italian: [ˈfɛːdets]), is an Italian rapper, influencer, singer and songwriter. In 2011, he released the albums Penisola che non c’è and Il mio primo disco da venduto, released as free digital downloads.
His first studio album, Sig. Brainwash – L’arte di accontentare, was released in 2013, and it debuted at number one on the Italian Albums Chart. The album, which spawned three singles, including the top 10 hit “Cigno nero” featuring Francesca Michielin, was later certified 3× Platinum by the Federation of the Italian Music Industry. In 2011, Fedez recorded his first self-produced album with a budget of only €500, Penisola che non c’è.
The album, released as a free digital download, was entirely composed of songs about political and social issues. Later in 2011, Fedez signed with the label Tanta Roba, founded by Guè Pequeno and DJ Harsh. The label produced his second free album, Il mio primo disco da venduto, released as a digital download in November of the same year. In June 2012, Fedez appeared in a new version of 883’s song “Jolly Blue”, included on the album Hanno ucciso l’Uomo Ragno 2012, recorded by the band’s frontman Max Pezzali to celebrate the twentieth anniversary since the release of their first full-length album, Hanno ucciso l’Uomo Ragno. In January 2013, Fedez released his first single for a major label, “Si scrive schiavitù si legge libertà”. The song was later included in the album Sig. Brainwash – L’arte di accontentare, released by Sony Music on 5 March 2013.
The album was also preceded by the top ten single “Cigno nero”, performed with Francesca Michielin, which was also certified platinum by the Federation of the Italian Music Industry. The album debuted at number one on the Italian Albums Chart, and it was later certified triple platinum denoting sales exceeding 180,000 units. To promote the album, Fedez embarked on a tour starting from 12 April 2013 in Turin.
The album also spawned the single “Alfonso Signorini (eroe nazionale)”, whose music video features Italian TV personalities Alfonso Signorini and Raffaella Fico. In June 2013, Fedez was also a guest judge during the auditions of the seventh season of the Italian talent show X Factor. In May 2013, it was announced that Fedez and Victoria Cabello would replace Elio and Simona Ventura as judges on the eighth season of the Italian version of X Factor alongside Morgan and Mika. His fourth studio album, Pop-Hoolista, was released on 30 September 2014. Predeced by the single “Generazione boh”, the record also includes duets with Malika Ayane, Francesca Michielin, Noemi, Elisa and J-Ax.
The album debuted atop the Italian Albums Chart, and it was certified gold one week after its release. In 2021, Fedez was one of the acts competing in the Sanremo Music Festival; dueting with long-time collaborator Francesca Michielin, the pair performed their song “Chiamami per nome” (Call me by my name) and finished second.
