New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Just 6 weeks after it was released, Andrea Bocelli's No.1 album Sí (Sugar/Decca/Universal Music) - which topped charts on both sides of the Atlantic - has been certified Gold in the UK after selling 100,000 copies. It has surpassed the milestone further in the past week, reaching 150,000 copies.

It's the latest landmark for Bocelli after he became the first classical artist to achieve a No.1 on the Official UK Album Charts in over 20 years; and he simultaneously topped the U.S. Billboard 200 Chart for the first time in his illustrious career. The album also became Decca's first UK/US chart double in the label's near 90-year history.

Sí is Bocelli's first album of new material in 14 years. He has teamed up with some of the hottest musical stars on the planet - reuniting with his friend Ed Sheeran after their chart-topping "Perfect Symphony" on a brand-new song called "Amo Soltanto Te" (written by Sheeran with lyrics by Tiziano Ferro) and joining with pop sensation Dua Lipa on the single "If Only". Watch the official music video HERE.

At the centre of the album is a spine-tingling duet between father and son, as 21-year-old Matteo Bocelli steps into the limelight to duet with Andrea on "Fall On Me". The video has already racked up a staggering 35 million views across all platforms - watch the official video HERE.

"Fall on Me" appears in the end credits of the hotly-anticipated new Disney film, The Nutcracker and The Four Realms, starring Keira Knightley, Mackenzie Foy, Helen Mirren and Morgan Freeman, which is out in cinemas now. The soundtrack is also out now on Decca/Walt Disney Records/Universal Music.
Also duetting on the album is crossover superstar Josh Groban and classical soprano Aida Garifullina.

Bocelli's humble manner belies his international status as one of the world's biggest classical stars. He's sung for Popes, Presidents and royalty - most recently performing at the Royal Wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle. He has performed in all the greatest concert halls and opera houses around the world and has sold 90 million records. He has a Golden Globe, 7 Classical BRITs and 7 World Music Awards under his belt, plus a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Bocelli continues to tour the world with major shows in the U.S., Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Canada, Ireland and the UK where fans will have the opportunity to hear his new music. He recently performed two sold-out nights at London's O2 Arena. More information on his tour dates here. He will be giving major performances at New York's Metropolitan Opera on February 10th and 17th.

In his 60th birthday year, Andrea Bocelli proves he's still at the height of his vocal powers with Sí - an uplifting new album about heart, soul, positivity. It showcases the extraordinary talent that has made Bocelli an international best-selling artist and global icon.
