In the aftermath of the Grand Final, Eurovision 2018 artists have started climbing the worldwide Spotify and iTunes charts. They really are on fuego, and they ain’t cooling down anytime soon.
We’ve put together a list of all the contestants in Lisbon whose songs are already charting in the top 10 in at least one country. Keep in mind, we don’t list every country where an act is charting, nor do we mention every act.
There are simply too many! If you’d like to know that Australia’s Jessica Mauboy is charting at #184 in Bermuda, head over to esctracker, where the full list is available.
So, without further adieu, here are this year’s biggest commercial hits (as of Monday at 16:00 GMT).
Cyprus is at #1 in five countries, while Austria, Denmark and Germany can each claim #1 in two markets of their own.
