In Anglo-Saxon countries and Latin America, it is a business that has repeatedly overtaken rock, jazz and classical music in terms of sales. A “fall” broke out in Italy in 2020 when the Reali band took second place in the Classical with the album Greatest Hits. Seconds after Lady Gaga’s Chromatica.
