After teasing some impressive visuals (as ever) via his Instagram, Mahmood has released his latest single ‘Inuyasha’. According to his Twitter, the track will feature on the much anticipated follow-up to Gioventù bruciata.
Not even a pandemic can keep Mahmood down. Even though he had a 2020 European tour planned, he’s still busy as ever. Although he’s not due to compete at Sanremo 2021, he is credited on two of the competing entries of the festival. He is credited as a co-writer on Francesca Michielin & Fedez’s song “Chiamami per nome” and the writer of Noemi’s “Glicine”.

In 2016, he made his Sanremo debut in the Newcomers Section with the song “Dimentica”. Following this, he released a number of singles and features. In late 2018 he was announced to be returning to Sanremo with Soldi. Although an outsider, he ended up winning a surprise victory in the super final over the likes of Ultimo and Il Volo. Although controversial at the time, he has since become a huge star in Italy, as shown by the success of Soldi and its parent album Gioventù bruciata. He was originally unsure of whether he would accept the offer of Eurovision participation following the backlash he received, but ultimately confirmed his place. The song went on to achieve second place in Tel Aviv, with 472 points.
After placing second at Eurovision, he embarked on his first European tour, with multiple sold-out dates. Not to mention, the first stop of this tour was the European Parliament! He also won an MTV EMA for Best Italian Artist. After the success of Elodie’s ‘Andromeda’, he’s due to return to Sanremo as a writer once again.
