His second album, Barcelona, recorded with Spanish soprano Montserrat Caballé, combines elements of popular music and opera. Many critics were uncertain what to make of the album; one referred to it as „the most bizarre CD of the year.” The album was a commercial success, and the album’s title track debuted at the No. 8 position in the UK charts and was a hit in Spain. The title track received massive air play as the official anthem of the 1992 Summer Olympics (held in Barcelona one year after Mercury’s death). Caballé sang it live at the opening of the Olympics with Mercury’s part played on a screen, and again prior to the start of the 1999 UEFA Champions League Final in Barcelona.
