Calogero yalla

3 is the third studio album recorded by the French singer and songwriter Calogero. It was released in 2004 and achieved smash success, becoming the second best-selling album of the year in France.


Yalla calogero

Album information

The album, for which all the music was composed by Calogero, was written by several artists, such as Lionel Florence (who had already worked with Pascal Obispo, Patricia Kaas and Nolwenn Leroy), Zazie, Raphael and Calogero's brother, Gioacchino. The R&B duet with Passi on "Face à la mer", was the most successful single from this album. The single "Si seulement je pouvais lui manquer" is dedicated to Calogero's father, and the last track, "La Bienvenue", is a tribute his daughter who was born shortly before.

The album was charted for two years in France and Belgium (Wallonia), topping their chart, and achieved success in Switzerland, and hitting Platinum certifications in these countries.

3 was released as a CD, but there was also a collector edition composing of a CD and a DVD on which there is an interview of Calogero. There were three singles from this album, but "Yalla" was just a promotional single, while the two others were top ten hits in France and Belgium (Wallonia).

The album was also simultaneously released on hybrid stereo/multichannel Super Audio CD. In 2013 the high resolution stereo version was repurposed as a 24/96 download for Qobuz and other providers, and both the stereo and surround programmes were used to make a High Fidelity Pure Audio Blu-ray disc.
