The discography of Lorenzo Cherubini, an Italian singer-songwriter and rapper better known as Jovanotti, consists of twelve studio albums, six compilation albums, a remix album, three live albums, four video albums and seventy-one singles.

After releasing his debut single, "Walking", which became a minor hit in Italy during 1987, Jovanotti reached commercial success in 1988, when he released the single "Gimme Five", which topped the Italian Musica e dischi's Singles Chart. The song was later included in Jovanotti's first album, Jovanotti for President, which sold more than 400,000 copies in Italy and spawned three other top 5 singles in Italy.

Jovanotti for Presidents's follow-up, La mia moto, confirmed Jovanotti's success in his home country, selling more than 600,000 copies, while 1990's Giovani Jovanotti obtained a very poor commercial reception.[1] During the next years, Jovanotti was able to re-gain popularity, scoring nine number-one albums in Italy between 1994 and 2012, including the greatest hits Lorenzo raccolta and Backup 1987-2012. As of 2012, Cherubini has also released eight number-one singles as a lead singer and two as a featured artists.

In the late 1980s, Jovanotti also released two dance singles under the pseudonym Gino Latino, while in 2003 he released a Latin music album, titled Roma, together with other musicians under the name Colletivo Soleluna.[2]

During his career, Jovanotti recorded songs with several Italian and international artists, including Ben Harper, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Mousse T., Gianna Nannini, Pino Daniele, Negramaro, Luciano Ligabue and Piero Pelù.

As a songwriter, he adapted songs in Italian for Jarabe de Palo and Miguel Bosé and he penned original songs for several Italian artists, including Zucchero Fornaciari, Adriano Celentano, Giorgia and Irene Grandi.

Notes

  • A ^ "J'ai confiance en toi (Mi fido di te)" did not enter the Ultratop 50, but peaked at number 12 on the Wallonia Ultratip chart, which acts as a 30-song extension to the Ultratop 40.[137]
