Not always success in Eurovision rhymes with success in the world music industry. For Soldi, however, the triumph at Sanremo Festival and the second place at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest seem to be just the beginning of a long haul at the top of music charts.
Mahmood represented Italy at the 2019 Eurovision in Tel Aviv, Israel, and finished runner-up with his hit Soldi.
