20 - The Greatest Hits is the second greatest hits album by Italian singer Laura Pausini, released on November 12, 2013 by Warner Music Group. The album was also issued in a Spanish version, titled 20 - Grandes Exitos, and this edition received a nomination for a Lo Nuestro Award for Pop Album of the Year.[1]

Background

On 26 February 2013, in order to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of her career, Pausini released a digital single including the original versions in Italian, Spanish and English of the song which launched her career in 1993, "La solitudine". The track was launched as a limited-edition single, available for purchase for a week only.[2] Later during the same year, she confirmed that a greatest hits album will be released for the same purpose by December 2013.[3]

Working on the album began on April 2013,[4] with recording and photo-shooting sessions taking place up to August.[5] The album was confirmed on May 2013.[6]

On 1 June 2013 Pausini took part in the concert Chime for Change in London, supporting the global campaign of the same name for girls' and women's empowerment. Pausini performed the songs "Io canto" and "It's Not Goodbye".[7] During the same year, she appeared as a featured artist on the track "Sonríe (Smile)", included in American singer Gloria Estefan's album The Standards.[8] A new world tour has also been confirmed by Pausini through her official website. Starting from December 2013, Pausini will promote her greatest hits album with concerts in her native Italy, as well as in other European countries, in Latin America, in the United States and in Canada. The tour also includes a performance during the Viña del Mar International Song Festival in Chile.[9]

On September 9, 2013, Pausini released a new single named "Limpido" (in Spanish, "Limpio"), in order to promote her new album. The song is a duet between Pausini and the Australian singer Kylie Minogue. On the same day, the name of the album was confirmed to be 20 - The Greatest Hits. "Limpido" is the first single released in September 9, 2013.

On September 20, 2013, Pausini posted the official cover of this new album in her Instagram account, created in order to share the image.[10]

The track list of the album was unveiled on October 6, 2013, in Pausini's official fan club. This is Pausini's first studio album that contains tracks in all the languages she has sung up to the moment: Italian, Spanish, French, English and Portuguese.

The second single of the album, "Se non te", was released on November 4, 2013.

Other releases from the album include the singles "Dove resto solo io", "Se fue" (with Marc Anthony), "Víveme" (with Alejandro Sanz) and "Surrender", the last one being released only in Australia.

On July 22, 2014, Pausini confirmed that she would be one of the four coaches of the fourth season of the Mexican reality show and singing competition La Voz. She also confirmed that by September that same year she would release a special version of the album's Spanish version to the hispanophone market, in a special edition that would contain three new duets: with Thalía in Sino a ti, Alex Ubago in Donde quedo solo yo and Melendi in Entre tu y mil mares.[11]

Promotion

To promote both this new album and her twentieth career anniversary, Pausini will embark in a series of concert shows around the world, entitled "The Greatest Hits World Tour".[12]
