Miki Nunez - Amuza album cover

For some acts performing at Eurovision can be the start and the end of their career.

But since he closed the Grand Final four months ago, it seems the only way for Spain’s Miki Nuñez is up.

He spent summer on tour, wracked up over 5 million streams on his new single “Celebrate”, and now his first album Amuza has debuted at Number 1 on the Spanish album charts.

The star took to Twitter, thanking his 129k fans in a tweet sent earlier today:

“I can’t believe it…what’s going on…thanks so much,” Miki says in the tweet. It has since wracked up over 2000 likes.

Spain’s Eurovision 2019 star beat competition from Spanish acts like Indie band León Benavente and international stars including Lana Del Rey in the race for Number One.

The success came hot on the heels from an open air gig in Barcelona, where Miki played songs from the new album to a crowd of almost 50,000:

Gràcies Barcelona. Un puto sueño. Os dejo unas fotos y unos vídeos para que veáis cómo lo vivimos desde arriba? . Ayer escribí esto: Acabo de llegar a casa y creo que voy asimilando poco a poco lo que ha ocurrido esta noche. He cantado delante de casi 50.000 personas. Presentando las canciones de mi nuevo disco. Que el público ha cantado a pleno pulmón. He compartido escenario con mis amigos y amigas de toda la vida. Y encima he podido invitar a artistas que admiro y que he trabajado con ellos. (wtf) No se porqué ha ocurrido esto y lo mejor es que siento que sólo acaba de empezar. Sé que eso no hubiese sido posible sin cada una de las personas que estaban ahí, dándolo todo incluso con la lluvia cayendo a mares. No tengo palabras de agradecimiento suficientes. No las tengo de verdad. Nos vemos en la #GiraAmuza. Link de las entradas en la biografía. . ? @arturgavalda

The “Nadie Se Salva” singer shared his delight in taking the stage with “lifelong friends” and appreciation for the public “singing at the top of their lungs”. The concert will have been a homecoming of sorts for Miki, as Catalonia is his home region.

Fans who want to see Miki perform songs from Amuza will be in luck as he goes on tour next month.

The Eurovision 2019 star is set to play 14 dates across the length and breadth of Spain between October and January. Cities visited will include Pamplona and Malaga. Before the tour sets off however, he’ll also appear on Wednesday in Madrid.

What do you make of Amuza’s success? Do you like the album? Are you going to see Miki on tour? Let us know in the comments below!

Miki seems to be a very nice down to earth guy and a hardworker. He deserves what he’s getting.

Speaking of Operación Triunfo’s alumni, Aitana got a nomination for best new artist in the Latin Grammys.

Horray for Miki! Hope this inspires more Spanish artists to want to appear in Eurovision.

I’m very happy for him, he totally deserves it. I briefly listened to the album and added the great new version of “Nadie se salva”, as well as “Per tu” to my playlist. Unbelievable how those awful juries at Eurovision did him in, I’m glad to see it didn’t damage his career.

I’m so happy for him! He was robbed in Eurovision. OK, the staging didn’t blow me away, but 22nd position? Are you kidding me? That was harsh
