Thanks to steady high chart positions across continental Europe, Zucchero’s duets CD “Zu & Co” (featuring Dolores O’Riordan on “Pure Love”) has now sold over 1 million copies worldwide. To date, “Zu & Co.” has achieved multi-platinum status in Italy, platinum in Switzerland, Austria and Germany, gold in France and is very nearly gold in the Netherlands and Belgium. The CD still has Top 10 status on the charts in Italy, Slovenia, Austria, and Switzerland. There are still no plans to release it here in the USA.
In other Zucchero news, both Zucchero and Dolores were featured briefly in this past week’s edition of CNN International’s “The Music Room” show. The segment was on Italy’s Fesitivalbar in May. The show aired a short interview with Zucchero, then played a clip of Dolores and Zucchero performing “Pure Love” at Festivalbar, then aired a short interview clip with Dolores. Dolores told CNN that after doing the Cranberries for 13 years it’s now fun to work with other people.
