Le migliori is an album by Italian singers Mina and Adriano Celentano, issued on November 11, 2016. The first single "Amami amami" was released on October 21, 2016. Le migliori became the best-selling album of 2016 in Italy.[1] and sold 340k copies, getting the certification 6× Platinum.[2]

Background[edit]

In March 2015, rumors began of another collaboration between Adriano Celentano and Mina, especially after the message he posted on his blog to congratulate her on her 75th birthday.[3] In the following months these rumors became more pervasive until it was officially confirmed on October 20, 2015 that the two artists would indeed be releasing an album of new songs together. At the time of the original announcement, the album was scheduled to be released in the spring of 2016. Eighteen years after their extremely successful first album of duets, Mina Celentano, these two legends of Italian music once again were working together. As reported by the Corriere della Sera, recording would begin in early summer 2015 and would take place in both Adriano Celentano’s studio in Galbiate and Mina’s studio in Lugano.[4] The official release date of Le Migliori was finally set for November 11, 2016.[5]

The album's title comes from a quote by Celentano on his blog congratulating Mina on her 75th birthday (in 2015), speaking of their collaboration: meaning "(we are) the best ones". Surprisingly, this word in Italian is in the feminin plural; hence the later artwork of the disk showing Mina and Celentano in a sort of extravagant street fashion show both dressed as women.
