In 2001 EMI Italy released his debut album, Rosso Relativo, featuring the hit single Xdono.
The album put his name on the map, but it was the 2003 follow-up, 111, that launched him to stardom, eventually selling over a million copies.
Ferro recorded extensively in numerous languages including Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, and English.
With his next four studio albums, he confirmed himself as top charts artist: Nessuno è Solo (2006), Alla Mia Età (2008), L'Amore È Una Cosa Semplice (2011) and Il Mestiere Della Vita (2015) went to #1 of the album chart.
In 2010, after years of denial, he finally came out as gay in an interview with Vanity Fair.
His hits compilation TZN: The Best of Tiziano Ferro, released late 2014, spent several weeks at number one. Driven by a pair of new singles and a stadium tour, it continued to chart highly throughout 2016.
Tiziano Ferro went on to a highly successful career not only as a recording artist - scoring numerous platinum records and winning armloads of awards - but as a songwriter for other artists, including Andrea Bocelli//Ed Sheeran and Blue. He also collaborated with John Legend, Kelly Rowland, Chris Botti, Mary J Blige, Jamelia, One Republic. His last album will be produced by Timbaland.
