Sanremo 2018: Ultimo Wins Nuove Proposte Category

Ultimo has won the Nuove Proposte category of this year's Festival di Sanremo.

The Roman-born singer and hip hop artist, who released his debut album Pianeti at the end of 2017, entered the contest with "Il Ballo Delle Incertezze," a lyrically impactful song that blends melodic singing with rap verse. "When I wrote Il Ballo Delle Incertezze I wanted to focus on people like me," he said. "It's a song that represents those who don't have a future in society; who have more questions than answers; who lost risking. It's my latest declaration that reaches out to those who have been marginalized."

Ultimo also dropped his new album Peter Pan yesterday, the same day as his Sanremo victory. It includes his winning song. Watch the official music video for "Il Ballo Delle Incertezze" below.
