After weeks of national finals and entry reveals, we now know all 41 songs for this year’s competition. Our Eurovision 2019 Spotify playlist is filling up, as most of the competing songs are now available for listening. In our latest weekly update, Malta’s “Chameleon” and Lithuania’s “Run With the Lions” make their way to the streaming platform.
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 (7 April)
The table above shows the current number of streams for each song as of Sunday 7 March. While 40 songs are currently available on the platform, Georgia hasn’t been released to the platform yet. Notably, a few earlier versions were replaced with Eurovision edits and thus we’re combining the total count with the earlier streams counted so far.
Italy remains in the lead — and by some distance. Following not-so-close behind are Sweden, France, and the Netherlands, which swaps places with Spain’s Miki who’s now down to number five.
Further down in the top ten, Switzerland and Cyprus both climb one spot, while Estonia is down two to number nine. Rounding out the top ten are Norway (at 6) and Portugal (10). Eleven songs have now reached more than one million streams on Spotify!
Malta and Lithuania now available on streaming
This week sees Malta and Lithuania debut on our streaming chart — answering the prayers of countless fans who have been dying to stream these tracks. Malta’s Michela comes in at 38 while Jurij is at 40 this week.
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.
