Italy: Francesco’s video of «Occidentali’s Karma» hits over 10 million YouTube Views.
It hasn’t been over 6 days since Francesco Gabbani won the Sanremo Festival with his entry Occidentali’s Karma and its impulse all over Europe is growing huge.
While Italian euro fans are arguing on whether the message of Francesco’s video is clear to the public or is considered just another “amusing” entry for the Eurovision Song Contest, the number of views on YouTube are really impressive. The official clip of the song Occidentali’s Karma, Italy’s entry for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Kiev, has reached a number over 10 million views in six days from its official release on YouTube. The same time Italy is first on the betting boards predicting the potential winner of the contest next May.
This year Italy’s entry has already entered the i-tunes charts in 15 countries. Ιtaly (#1), Μalta (#3), Switzerland (#4), Luxembourg, Greece, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Belgium, Germany, Norway, France, Ιreland, Αυstria and Denmark. In Italy of course it’s already No1 on all charts (spotify, airplay κλπ). In the U.K despite the fact that it hasn’t entered the charts yet, Metro’s newspaper interest on a Eurovision entry, a development that is often on British tabloids, is another indication of how popular this year’s Italy’s Eurovision entry is turning out to be.
