Wiki

Recording started in the first half of 2004 in Sweden, with producers Quiz & LarossiPer Magnusson & David Kreuger and in the UK with producer Steve Mac. This self-titled album contained the Spanish renditions of Toni Braxton's hit "Unbreak My Heart" (Regresa a mí), which in turn was recorded by Braxton under the guidance of Il Divo; their second single and first original song "Mama"; Sinatra's "My Way" (A mi manera); an adaptation of Ennio Morricone's "Gabriel's Oboe" from the movie "The Mission (film)," titled "Nella Fantasia," and 1994's San Remo Festival winner "Passerà."

The album hit the #1 slot on both Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com after a career-defining appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show on 5 April 2005, where they performed "Regresa a mi."

In the United Kingdom, the Il Divo album knocked Robbie Williams out of the number 1 spot in the UK charts, Williams allegedly said to them at the "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason" film premiere, “So you are the four idiots who have forced me off my number one spot!”[6].

This multiplatinum-selling CD became number one in the charts in a total of 13 countries around the world, and achieved top 5 placing in 25 countries.
