He’s been performing all over Europe. And with the success of “Soldi”, things keep going well for Mahmood. The schedule of the Eurovision 2019 remains as packed as ever, and the platinum records just keep coming.

“Soldi” has already cracked more than 100 million views on YouTube — becoming only the fifth Eurovision entry to achieve that.

Ever since Mahmood’s appearance at Eurovision in Tel Aviv, he has had a diary full of performances all over Europe. Becoming the most successful Italian artist of the year, Mahmood has also performed at many festivals in his country.

Mahmood has also seen success with sales and streams of the “Soldi” single. The song now has three-times platinum certification in Italy. But the single isn’t just limited to local success. It also achieved platinum status in Greece, Switzerland and most recently in Spain. Mahmood shared the good news in an Instagram post.

“Soldi” is still charting in the iTunes singles charts for Israel, Switzerland, Lithuania and Spain.

Mahmood’s most recent collaboration on the single “Calipso” already is two-times platinum certified in Italy as well. The song nearly reached 40 million streams on Spotify, while “Soldi” is very close to reach the 100 million mark on the platform.

And just months from his Eurovision appearance, Mahmood has picked up another dream gig. He recently announced to fans that he will be the opening act for the former Fugees singer and acclaimed singer-songwriter Lauryn Hill in her Italian show on 7 August.

The performance will be a special one for Mahmood, as he explained to fans on social media:

“The Fugees’ The Score is the first album I ever bought, but The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is the album that I’ve listen to the most in my life. On August 7th I’ll open Lauryn Hill’s concert at the Locus Festival, and I just can’t believe it.”

And there’s more music to come. A new single is in the pipeline — but fans will have to wait a little longer before being able to hear the “Soldi” follow-up.

Dear Mahmood, you are a kinge, and despite what some envious people say it is a fact that your song is having a huge success and soldi will remain one of the most important songs in eurovision story. You deserve all and I don’t know if persons like “P.”, who always talk bad below every single article I read about you, has never heard an album so amazing and deep as Gioventù bruciata…
We are waiting for your next album 🙂

Mahmood definitely is the new discovery of the year. I thank my beloved Eurovision to let me discover this amazing one in a million genius! Mahmood is the embodiment of true art in combination with a gorgeous personality. He is a very modest, authentic, friendly and kindhearted person and his music is very fresh, deepgoing, meaningful and catchy. I am glad to know him and I am proud to call myself his fan. His Album Gioventú Bruciata is a collection of musical masterpieces. Italy, be proud of him! His time to shine has come now! We will still hear a… Read more »

Some days ago Soldi was playing in a Turkish music channel as well. I was so shocked and felt so proud. Idk why but everytime I hear Eurovision songs outside of Eurovision, I feel proud as if they are my own songs 😀

I’m so happy for Mahmood’s success. Soldi will always be among the best songs in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest.

Seems like he is earning a lot of Soldi with “Soldi” 😀 I am happy for him! 🙂

If he’s opening for Lauryn, he could be onstage a while…she doesn’t come out until she feels likes it, leaving her audience waiting until 22.30 sometimes. She’s worth it in the end, though.

Will fans really have to wait a while before hearing the follow-up to Soldi? Surely it will be something from his already-released album?

Yeah, she hasn’t released anything in years, but she’s been touring the 20th anniversary of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.

I would have given him 27 more points than the score he got at Eurovision. Oh well…

The Italian juries surely must feel disappointed that not even their deliberate down voting of Duncan and Sergey helped Mahmood win.

Soldi isn’t platinum in Switzerland http://www.swisscharts.com/search_certifications.asp?search=mahmood
And apparently according to the mods on the Italian wikipedia, Greece stopped certifying songs years ago.

Every day wiki’s admins and mods have to remove the non existing certifications from Soldi’s wiki page https://it.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Soldi_(Mahmood)&action=history

Same happens on the English wiki page by the way.

(Down voting doesn’t change facts by the way.)

The success of Soldi is a fact.
