“Be My Love: A Tribute to Mario Lanza” hits No. 1 on Danish Pop Charts and Soars on Amazon and iTunes in UK
Joseph’s new release on Decca, Be My Love: A Tribute to Mario Lanza, has gone to the No. 1 spot on the Danish Pop Chart and No. 2 on the Danish Compilation and Artist Pop Chart, surpassing releases by artists such as Justin Bieber, Bruce Springsteen, and Adele. This marks the first time since the release of The Three Tenors in 1994 that a classical album has achieved such a high ranking on a pop chart in Denmark. The success follows Joseph’s appearance on Good Evening Denmark, a popular Danish TV. Click here to watch it.
In the UK, the album is off to an auspicious start following its release earlier this week. Currently, it is trending at No. 1 on the UK’s iTunes classical music chart and is No. 4 on the Amazon UK Bestseller chart.
