Eurovision is off to another busy week of entry revelations. And our Eurovision 2019 Spotify playlist is filling up fast, as most of the competing songs are already available for listening.
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). While there are a few changes within the top ten this week, Italy’s Mahmood remains in the lead.
Today’s update includes six new entries. Unfortunately, Ukraine is no longer on the list following the national broadcaster’s withdrawal announcement. Most of the competing songs are already available for streaming (and you can do listen via our playlist linked right here).
Eurovision 2019 Spotify streaming charts
The table above shows the current number of streams for each song as of yesterday, Sunday 3 March. While nineteen songs are currently available on the platform, the entries from Albania, Lithuania, Montenegro, United Kingdom, Georgia and Serbia 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 already surpassed 20 million plays. Following behind are France and Spain which have also reached six-figures.
New to the top ten is Denmark’s Leonora, climbing from twelfth to sixth after her victory last Saturday. Moreover, new entries from Norway, Portugal and Iceland debut in the top ten.
Croatia’s “The Dream” no longer sits in last place. That unenviable honour now goes to Moldova — but there’s still plenty of time for that to change.
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.
