Like his first album, The Italian, Buanne's second album is composed of fresh arrangements of romantic Italian tunes sung in Italian, English, and Spanish. It also presents some original songs written specifically for Buanne. Additionally, the album includes an Italian version of Robbie Williams' song "Angels" (called "Un Angelo").

At its peak, Forever Begins Tonight ranked number seven on Billboard's "Top World Music Albums" chart. In addition, it reached platinum status in Australia.
