He’s the runner-up of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. And buoyed by the success of “Soldi”, Mahmood is now touring across the country. Last weekend he performed at the well-known Mi Ami Festival in Milan. Established in 2005, it’s now one of the most important festivals in the country.
It’s on wonder Mahmood is busier than ever. “Soldi” has become one of the biggest songs of the year in Italy. Cracking up more than 90 million views on YouTube, the song has been met with global acclaim. It keeps climbing the charts all over the world. The three times platinum-certified track still sits atop the Israeli iTunes charts and also leads Spotify charts in Israel, Lithuania and Malta.
It’s also proven to be very popular in Iceland, Cyprus, Estonia, Sweden, Greece, and Switzerland. And Mahmood has also landed at number eight on the Billboard Digital Songs Chart in the US. Nothing but good news for Mahmood!

Just last weekend, the Sanremo winner performed at the Mi Ami Festival in Milan. The diverse selection of artists marries several cultural and musical styles. Most importantly, it’s a platform to celebrate the domestic music scene.
Other than “Soldi”, Mahmood also performed songs from his studio album “Gioventù Bruciata“. Among them was “Calipso”, the Charlie Charles pinned track he features on (we previously reviewed it here).
Throughout the summer season, he’s been a busy boy and recently had concerts in Bologna and Florence. More concerts are coming up, including the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland on July 8, which also features British pop star Rita Ora!
