"I Belong to You (Il Ritmo della Passione)" (English: "I Belong to You (The Rhythm of the Passion)") is a duet by Italian singer Eros Ramazzotti and American singer Anastacia, released as the second single from both Ramazzotti's eleventh studio album, Calma apparente (2005), and Anastacia's first greatest hits album, Pieces of a Dream (2005). It was a hit in mainland Europe, topping the singles charts in Germany, Italy and Switzerland and charting inside the top ten in several other countries.

The song is a ballad in which Anastacia sings in English and Ramazzotti in Italian or Spanish. As Ramazzotti records his songs in both Italian and Spanish, there are two versions of this song as well: the original one with Italian lyrics and the other with Spanish lyrics, entitled "I Belong to You (El Ritmo de la Pasion)", which is available on the Spanish versions of both Ramazzotti's and Anastacia's albums.

Critical reception

Worthy of mention are some quality new tracks, placed towards the end but good enough to be top of the bill. Best of these is "I Belong To You", a gorgeous duet with Eros Ramazzotti which reveals a silkier side to the hard edge normally so distinctive in her voice, and ends with the kind of lung excess that would put Celine Dion to shame.[1]

Music video

The music video was filmed in Rome, Italy, on 21 and 22 November 2005. In the video, Ramazzotti and Anastacia play a romantic couple.
