Tuscan pop star Jovanotti, aka Lorenzo Cherubini, first emerged on the Italian scene as a rapper back in the late '80s, but since then he has also explored rock, funk, and even classical and world music. His 2009 album Oyeah, a collection of live performances in New York last summer with his band Soleluna, shows off the performer's affinity for big, live jams. On "Adagio," Jovanotti adapts his singsong mic style to a fiery samba, passionately delivering Italian rhymes over a driving Latin beat.
