Y’all voted him as the Eurovision 2019 act most likely to succeed commercially. And Italy’s Mahmood is most certainly living up to your expectations.

After a stunning result at Eurovision 2019, “Soldi” has become a smash hit all over Europe. And the Sanremo winner is also collecting multiple chart certifications for his other recent singles.

Mahmood’s “Soldi” goes four times platinum

Just a few weeks ago, “Soldi” landed on top of France’s biggest Spotify playlist Hits du Moment.

Furthermore, the song is now four times platinum in Italy as well as double platinum in Spain. The track has accumulated more than 130 million views on YouTube and over 120 million Spotify streams.

Mahmood’s “Barrio” goes gold

But there’s more to Mahmood than just “Soldi”.

The Italian public is clearly behind the singer. His recent single “Barrio” went gold for selling more than 25,000 copies within just one month of release.

He also recorded a duet version with the popular reggaeton singer Lalo Ebratt. “Barrio” hit number one on the Italian airplay charts.

Mahmood performs with Eden Ben Zaken in Israel

Last week, Mahmood scored a nomination for Best Italian Act at this year’s MTV European Music Awards. And his success doesn’t stop at the Italian border.

In a few weeks, he’ll perform at the European Parliament in Strasbourg. “I‘ve been invited to play at the Friends of Music event‬ in the European Parliament on Oct 22nd in Strasbourg, right before the start of my European tour”, he says on Instagram. “I am honoured and excited for this opportunity, thank you! 🙏🏻 Let the Europa Good Vibes Tour begin!”

Earlier this month, he returned to Israel to perform a special concert with Israeli singer Eden Ben Zaken in Tel Aviv. Thousands of fans turned out to see the two stars perform together. As a bonus, they also premiered a previously unreleased duet.

Mahmood — European Tour

The Europa Good Vibes tour will take the singer all over Europe. Most of the shows are already sold out, including Berlin and Madrid as well as second shows in London and Paris. Additionally, the Barcelona show has been moved to a bigger venue due to high demand.

Mahmood is also proving his ability as a songwriter. He teamed up with Italy’s 2013 entrant Marco Mengoni for his new single “Duemila volte”, which Mahmood wrote together with Alessandro Raina, Davide Simonetta and Mengoni himself.

On top of that, Mahmood showed his versatility on “Karate”, which is a collaboration with Gemitaiz and Madman.

Of course everyone’s now wondering what’s next for the Italian superstar. Based on his recent social media activity, he’s been working with producer Dardust for new music. A new studio album is expected to come out next year. But before that, there’ll be plenty of opportunities to see this year’s Eurovision runner-up in action.

Before Sanremo, Mahmood was unknown for me; I loved Soldi, then, when I heard the album Gioventù bruciata , I was impressed by the incredible talent of this artist.
He deserves all and I’m so happy people in all Europe and not only Europe is listening to his songs !

I love it how this went from a controversial victory in San Remo to a big hit in Italy and honarable 2nd place in Eurovision.

Big hit not only in Italy: Israel and Greece also, and Spain (where Soldi us double platinum) and other countries. One of the few Italian songs, sung in Italian, that reached a so big success abroad.
