There’s still a lot of time to run until the showdown in Tel Aviv. But our Spotify playlist is filling up fast, as most of the competing songs are already available. The streaming figures on Spotify give us an impression of what fans have on replay (though, obviously Tamta’s “Replay” isn’t among them as it isn’t fully out). With the current numbers in, Italy’s Mahmood and France’s Bilal Hassani are sitting happily on top.
In the weeks leading up to Eurovision in Tel Aviv, we’ll be tracking the entries on Spotify and giving you an overview of which songs have made the biggest gains over the past seven days. It’s obviously not a perfect science, as you can stream artists from your home country. But it’s a fun barometer to look at anyway.
Today’s update is the starting point on the road to the three shows in May. Most of the competing songs are already available for streaming (and you can do listen via our playlist linked right here).
Spotify streaming charts
The table above shows the current number of streams for each song as of today, 24 February. While fourteen songs are currently available on the platform, the entries from Albania, Lithuania, Montenegro and the United Kingdom haven’t been released yet.
“Soldi” is the leader so far — and by some distance. The track has accumulated more than 1.5 million daily streams in Italy alone and sits close to 20 million streams right now. Following behind are France and Spain which have also reached six-figure numbers. Surprisingly, Estonia comes in fifth with a considerable gap to Australia’s “Zero Gravity”. Croatia’s entry “The Dream” is currently in last position, but there’s still plenty of time for that to change.
