Eurovision has had another busy week of entry reveals. Our Eurovision 2019 Spotify playlist is filling up fast, as most of the competing songs are now available for listening. In our latest weekly update, Sweden comes in as the highest debuting entry.
The streaming figures on Spotify give us an impression of what fans have on replay. While there are a few changes within the top ten this week, Italy’s Mahmood remains in the lead.
Today’s update includes nine new entries. Unfortunately, Ukraine is no longer on the list following the national broadcaster’s withdrawal. Most of the competing songs are already available for streaming (and you can 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 today, Sunday 3 March. While nineteen songs are currently available on the platform, the entries from Lithuania, Montenegro, Georgia, Serbia, Austria, Belarus, Ireland and Azerbaijan haven’t been released to the platform yet. Besides, North Macedonia and Russia aren’t included in this week’s ranking as their songs have just been released on the platform today and haven’t had a full day of tracking yet.
Italy remains in the lead — and by some distance. The track has accumulated more than 1.5 million daily streams in Italy alone and is now close to 30 million plays. France and Spain round out the top three.
New entries join the ranking
New to the top ten is Sweden’s John Lundvik. “Too Late For Love” comes in at four and is catching up fast. Norway climbs from seventh to fifth following an appearance on the Spotify global viral charts where they hit #2 — does this suggest global appeal for them?
Also new to the top ten is the Netherlands. Duncan’s entry “Arcade” comes in at number eight. Moreover, Cyprus (16), Switzerland (21), Greece (24), San Marino (25), Poland (26), Albania (27) and the United Kingdom (28). The latter two are finally available for streaming after a rather long wait.
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.
