From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Jovanotti (Lorenzo Cherubini) is an Italian cantautore and rapper. Most of his output is hip-hop influenced, although not most of his work should be viewed as hip hop music per se. Many of his songs are not hip hop related and may probably be best viewed as part of the earlier Italian cantautore tradition. Some of his earlier work is also closer to keyboard-heavy 80s pop. Most of his songs are sung in the Italian language; he also released a Spanish-language greatest hits album. His live album includes a short version of the Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight". Jovanotti appears on several international compilations, most notably "Red Hot + Rhapsody", a 1998 tribute to George Gershwin, on which he performed "I Got Rhythm". Jovanotti has also appeared in one Luciano Pavarotti's charity concert in 1996. His most recent CD, "Buon Sangue", includes influences from both rock and old school hip hop. It is one of his most innovative works to date. Edoardo Bennato collaborated on one track; Saturnino co-wrote two of the songs.

The name Jovanotti derives from the plural form of the Italian word giovanotto ('young man'), i.e. giovanotti. The spelling Jovanotti is anglicised; the letter j not being used in Italian per se. It was used instead of i and ii in some contexts, and not instead of gi.
