Italy’s Mahmood has another record in the bag. His Eurovision entry “Soldi” has now become the competition’s most streamed song on Spotify.

“Soldi” now boasts more than 122 million streams. With a few more remixes available on the platform as well, the accumulated number is even higher. This now puts him on top of the pile as the single most streamed Eurovision song. All that happened in just eight months, making him a true hitmaker.

With “Soldi” hitting top spot, that means Loreen’s “Euphoria” now sits in second position.

There’s one big elephant in the room. There are two key versions of Loreen’s winning entry on Spotify: the original and the radio edit. Adding their streams together, “Euphoria” would stand at about 136 million streams as of today.

Nevertheless, it’ll only be a matter of time until Mahmood’s “Soldi” also passes that number of plays.

Notably, Måns Zelmerlöw’s “Heroes” has also cracked 100 million streams on Spotify. This year’s winning song “Arcade” by Duncan Laurence is close to hitting 80 million streams.

With his Europa Good Vibes Tour starting in just a few more days, Mahmood has a lot to celebrate with his fans. Later this month, he’s performing at the European Parliament in Strasbourg. And in November he has the chance to win an MTV EMA award as he’s currently running in the regional category of Best Italian Act.

Previously, the music video of “Soldi” became the most watched Eurovision clip on YouTube.

His Eurovision entry is also four times platinum-certified in Italy. And the track became a hit in various countries all over Europe, including Spain, France and Switzerland.

Are you happy to see “Soldi” become the most streamed Eurovision song on Spotify? Did you expect the song to blow up back in February when it won Sanremo? Let us know in the comments section down below!

I love Soldi but can Soldi fans stop bashing Duncan? Duncan has an emotional song that rightfully won Eurovision. Though his commercial success is not as good as Mahmood, that doesn’t mean he’s not worth the title.

Considering how MaNga fans still talk about Lena 10 years after her victory I am already looking forward to salty soldi stans behaviour in the coming years.

The power of this (autobiographic) song is this mix between the catchy and original rhytm and sound with the deep meaning and the true pain and anger of Mahmood telling his story.
It’s something we’ll hardly see again in Esc, and it’s a pity part of the public didn’t understood completely the meaning of the song at a first listen…

Gosh this comment section is toxic. Bashing the last year winner etc. This a song contest remember, not who will be the biggest international star, or who deserved to win more or less, so have some love and peace for God’s sake

But I believe it:
He’s beautiful as the song
He has the courage to arabe without prejudice
He has the most fascinating dances of Italy behind him
But if the Eurovision doesn’t give the prize to him, we will give it to him!!!

The night I saw him first at the festival of Sanremo performing Soldi, I knew there we had an aspiring superstar! Stage presence, amazing voice, stunning appearance and lovely personality! Mahmood has everything necessary for playing in the supreme league of music! I am absolutely sure, that Soldi, Barrio and Europa Good Vibes are going to be only the beginning of his shooting star career! He knows how to combine message and character of a song with modern and catchy influences! He is a genius with giant brain and heart at the same time and I am sure Europe will… Read more »

Sure, that’s why Barrio is such a huge international hit. At least when you redefine international as only in Italy.

I agree with you. It was just like a bubble of a hype. Besides, the lack of charisma and magnetism of the full pack doesn’t help at all. Really.

In February it wasn’t possible to imagine all the goals that would have been reached in few months by this wonderful song, above all abroad; don’t forget it’s a song in Italian.
We are very proud of Mahmood and still think that maybe, singing one more time in Esc, in the semifinals, he could have won…
But now it doesn’t matter because he and his songs demonstrate he IS a winner, as artist and person 🙂

And yet, Italy doesn’t win ESC because some people don’t want it to host, because Toto Cutugno couldn’t speak English. Some countries are sabotaged (Italy, Russia……..).

But it is true RAI is not interested in hosting Eurovision, unluckily, and this is a problem, and also people in Italy are not so interested in Esc ; just think that there were more Dutch people watching the final of Eurovision than Italians

Italy wants to win Eurovision. It’s very obvious. Even from very far away. The question is: why haven’t they been allowed to win? why were Il Volo sabotaged? As far as I’m concerned that Swedish thing that won wasn’t that special, and although it still was an ok winner, there were MUCH BETTER songs that year.

Well, maybe sabotaged isn’t the right word. Why weren’t Il Volo supported by the juries?

Dude, the Italian jury didn’t give points to Duncan, Sergey and Luca and the Russian jury didn’t give points to Duncan, Mahmood and Luca. So you are right there was sabotage going on.

Russia sabotaged??!! Don’t make me laugh! In 2019 they finished 3rd with a lacklustre boring way too predictable unoriginal un-interesting unexciting un-everything song!
