After weeks of national finals and entry reveals, we now know all forty-one songs for this year’s competition. 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, Russia 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.
Eurovision 2019 Spotify streaming charts (17 March)
|15||Czech Republic||364,463||31||North Macedonia||70,264|
The table above shows the current number of streams for each song as of today, Sunday 10 March. While 32 songs are currently available on the platform, the entries from Lithuania, Montenegro, Georgia, Serbia, Belarus, Ireland, Azerbaijan, Malta and Armenia haven’t been released to the platform yet. Notably, Romania’s entry “On a Sunday” was replaced with the new Eurovision edit and thus we’re combining the total count with the earlier streams counted so far.
Italy remains in the lead — and by some distance. The track has accumulated more than 1.5 million daily streams in Italy alone and just hit 30 million plays. Sweden enters the top three with Spain and Norway rounding out the top five.
Back in the top ten is Iceland. Cyprus’ Tamta is up five spots at number eleven — looks like the replay function has actively been used!
New entries join the ranking
This week’s highest new entry is Russia’s Sergey Lazarev. “Scream” makes its debut at number twenty-three. The other acts debuting on the list are Austria (at 30), North Macedonia (31) and Israel (32).
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.
