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.
