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.
Today’s update includes four new entries. Unfortunately, Ukraine is no longer on the list following the national broadcaster’s withdrawal. You can listen via our playlist linked right here.
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.
What do you think about the current Spotify stats? Do they indicate a possible win for Italy? Let us know in our comments below!
Yeah spotify streams are nice but what about YOUR favourites? Would be amazing if y’all could vote in this poll, it just takes 3 minutes! All you need to do is sending me your points!
as 16th march Soldi has 26,487,844 streams in Italy so almost 5 M streams are from outside Italy, that’s almost like the total of the second most streamed song.
one thing is sure, those 88 thousands streams of Albania are definitely not coming from Albania cause there is no spotify service here lol
I really think that Mahmood will do very well this year. Do not be surprised if he takes it all out, or at least top 2. Us super fans have new faves week to week, but remember our first listen of Soldi; it stunned us!! That is the effect it will have on the 95% who only watch the final. Soldi will do so so well…
Agree, he could win, he and Duncan my favs, with either winner i would be super happy 😀
Supporting Italy from Malta! Ever since the first night of Sanremo, Mahmood became my favourite, not only to win Sanremo but also the Eurovision. His song speaks about his father, who left while Mahmood was still a child. I think a lot of people can relate to this unpleasant experience.
Most of the streama come from within the countries though. Like Italy is screamed by Italians, Netherlands by the Dutch and so on. There is a small procentage of streams coming from abroads but its only from fans who have heard the songs. The majority wont stream until after the show.
So I don’t know if one should read to much into it.
You can tell something about hit potential from the Spotify streams. For instance in Holland, people won’t stream it unless they really like the song. They didn’t stream our previous entries so much, not even close. It’s not like in Sweden where even if you release a turd in Melfest it will end up 1st on the Spotify charts.
I don’t understand the hatred towards Sergey this year. I actually thing “Scream” is such an improvement over his 2016 attempt. Does it deserve to win? Personally, I don’t think so,
But considering the fact that the fandom overrated such an awful song from him in 2016, to the point that he finished 1st in the televote and 3rd overall, yet suddenly despise him when he comes back with a much better entry.
it’s because fandom wanted shirtless Sergey in video and they got Disney instead 😛
Mahmood tells honest story of his life and his song is modern. Sergey has a well-done song, but the song is really dated.
I actually don’t understand why people continue to spread hate to Italy: most of the views are from Italy, of course it is, like for all the other countries (Netherlands of course which are supporting so much their entry). So what’s the problem?
“Spread hate” – you call people commenting about the fact that all of Italy’s streams are coming from Italians as spreading hate?? It’s the truth though.. just as much as all of Sweden’s streams are from Swedes, France’s are from French people and all of the Netherland’s streams are from Dutch people. It’s not “spreading hate”. I’ve seen some terribly horrible and even racist comments about e.g. John Lundvik and Sweden that gets plenty of upvotes yet no one calls it out as “spreading hate”. Get off your high horse please – no one is spreading hate when it comes… Read more »
Well I doubt that just Italians stream that song because it has 30 millions streams. There is a big difference. And it’s not like Italians were ok with that song winning Sanremo. If spotify was available in my country I would stream Soldi all day, instead I just use youtube.
They say: most of the Mahmood’s streams are coming from Italy. Instead, all of the others?
Obviously that streams aren’t a reliable yardstick; but 31.000.000 streams, 51.000.000 views in a month (1.000.000 only today): it’s numbers.
Finally: Mahmood live is amazing, this was just yesterday https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tToJMyM_AM
I am Irish and I have been streaming Italy, alongside Portugal and Netherlands on repeat on Spotify…Atleast 3 times daily.
So it’s not just Italians supporting their own, of which they are 100% entitled to do so in my opinion. Especially seeing as Italy really does deserve success this year
Yeah he is really great in live here also at amici :
exactly what I was thinking and Italians don’t even like the song that much. lol
In the meantime, Sergey’s live is as good as everyone would’ve expected https://www.instagram.com/p/BvHn_s4hRyM/
His voice is so good but his song is disappointing…
*Pumps his fist up* SCREAAAMM
The problem with the Russian entry I have: it’s a product, not bad but still…I prefer something that comes from the artist’s heart, not so polished, not trying to be perfect…there are more than 5 original songs this year, which is not bad!
Wow I did not expect Russia to be that low.
Seeing how Spotify isn’t aviable in Eastern Europe it’s not surprising..
even if it was, I wouldn’t stream it and I am from eastern Europe. That song is a yawn, Disney’s old soundtracks are better than this one
I think responsible for half of Israel’s streams!
I’m pretty sure the large majority of the streams of Soldi are coming from Italy and Italians obviously can’t vote for his song at Eurovision.
Making a poll about who knows that song outside Italy and eurofans maybe we get something like 0,001%
So yes again that irrelevant spotify stats.
Of course most of those streams are coming from Italy.
Same with the rest of the countries and their entries xd
Italians love this song and that’s great. Soldi was not made for Eurovision.
Last I checked they were mad about this song winning so I don’t think 31 millions streams are coming from just Italy
I wonder when will people finally understand that Italy’s situation is completely different, for as much as I hate it it’s undeniable. They should just take us off this chart.
