It has been almost five months since Eleni Foureira set Lisbon on fire. However, the flames are still burning bright. “Fuego” is on the rise and has soared to number one on the PROMUSICAE radio airplay charts in Spain. This is an ACHIEVEMENT!
“Fuego” — Eleni Foureira
“Fuego” secured Cyprus its best ever result at Eurovision. Pop diva Eleni Foureira was on fire on stage, lighting up the Eurovision arena. The fire has gained steam in the aftermath of Eurovision, topping the charts in Greece, which Foureira calls home. It has also hit the top ten in the charts of Spain, Israel and Belgium, as well as charting in a number of European countries.
The latest achievement of “Fuego” involved topping the Spanish radio charts. This is not to be confused with the Spain singles chart, on which “Fuego” peaked at number 9. “Fuego” has remained on the latter for 20 weeks since entering the charts after Eurovision 2018.

Both Eleni Foureira and songwriter Alex Papaconstantinou were quick to share the song’s success on social media.
Alex P said: “This means so much. It’s hard to explain how incredibly much hard work has been put in these 3 minutes. But thanks to such a talented and unified team, we did it. And of course it wouldn’t be possible without @foureira“.
Eleni Foureira has been a busy woman since Eurovision 2018.
She received the key to the city of Tirana in her country of birth Albania. She has also been travelling and performing around Europe, from Sweden to Spain, spreading her wildfire all over the continent.
New music has also been on her agenda, giving us a taste of “Caramela” with more new music in the pipeline.
