The streaming figures on Spotify give us an impression of what fans have on replay.
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 weekly streaming charts (21 April)
Italy’s Mahmood extends his gap over the Netherlands this week. Estonia re-enters the top ten as “Storm” is up at number nine, while Greece leaves this week’s top ten.
The biggest gainer of the week is Hungary’s Joci Papai. Up from number 29, he’s now sitting in the top 15. Lithuania also climbs and enters the top 30 of the weekly streaming list.
Besides, our prayers for Albania’s Jonida Maliqi have been heard as she climbs up seven spots. A good start to begin with!
Eurovision 2019 Spotify total streaming charts (21 April)
The table above shows the current number of streams for each song as of Sunday 21 April. 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. The Netherlands have entered the top three for the first time this year, beating France’s Bilal Hassani. Moreover, Hungary’s Joci Papai reaches the top 20 just behind Russia’s Sergey Lazarev.
Further down the list, Azerbaijan and Malta receive considerable gains. Malta’s Michela rises another three spots with her song “Chameleon”, which is on the edge of reaching the top 30.
Eurovision 2019 Spotify tracking
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!
Just so you know, with spotify being a swedish company, EVERYONE has it here, som maybe that plays in a bit. 😀
One thing that perturbs me about this and I’m hoping someone can set my mind at ease – does Spotify randomise the order of which songs appear where on a playlist? I hope so, if not, then surely isn’t it a self-fulfilling prophecy – ie, most people will only listen to the ones at the top, so the popular ones get more popular, etc, and the ones at the bottom seldom get listened to?
I think these charts are interesting in the sense that you can see which songs have longevity, which songs get played over and over again. Eventually the real hits come to the fore. Mahmood obviously, but Duncan is doing really well with a type of song that I normally wouldn’t see chart so well on Spotify in Holland. Luca Hänni is actually doing quite poorly with a song that should do better on Spotify.
Countries with a higher population will always have higher streaming numbers though, also Spotify is not equally popular everywhere, so yeah these charts are interesting, but not really meaningful.
estonia issa streaming monster this year, is it sweden or ?
I think Sweden is a bigger streaming monster . Its got more streams than the population of Sweden.
Estonia has about the same streams as it has population,few percentage here and there!
I saw a similar article on ESCextra and there Hungary wasn’t this high ? How so ?
They can’t count
Hey Kris, our series started back on February 24th. From what I can see they’ve started updating in late March only, which explains several differences. For instance, songs from Romania and Latvia were replaced with new Eurovision edits (the original songs got removed). However, it’s only fair to include streams prior to this removal, which is why their numbers are higher here (and actually accurate) rather than on their format which lacks data! Hope this explains it for you 🙂
Ohk , got it , thanks for clearing it up
But the article there mentions Hungary got 55k streams this week , and here you’ve written 90k , so one of you must be factually incorrect
stop articles about overhyped Netherlands, arcade
i hate this obsession people have this year with Duncan
How is this an article about Duncan?? No one is “obsessed ” with Duncan apart from you..
You are the only one who is obsessed by the Netherlands. Get a life friend !!!! And stop reading these articles please hahahaha
Hey Nicky, the purpose of this article is to report on the latest developments of Eurovision songs on Spotify. Hungary emerged in weekly streams, while Duncan reached the top three in overall streams – which I both consider worth mentioning!
Arent you the one calling him King Duncan? Saying how there is no competition this year? Arent you hyping him the most? To the point of others not liking him?
No, Nicky is notorious on several eurovision sites for his behaviour. His allegiances depend on the hour of the day and can take a 180 turn within a few seconds.
This comment from a few days ago on escforum sums it all up:
i like 40 out of 41 songs this year, the only song i dislike is Arcade, disgusting outdated emotionless overhyped song
Seriously Nicky, friendly advice: seek help. You’re a 28-year-old with the mental maturity of a toddler.
@dutchie, you are being too generous. I have seen toddlers with a much more mature behavior. Nicky’s mental abilities come close to those of a jellyfish
There is something I don’t understand. There is a lot of talking about Italy. ‘Soldi’ ranks very high on Youtube, I-tunes etcetera. But Italy is ‘only’ number 4 at the bookmakers. And Russia is number 2 at the bookies, while a lot of people are disappointed about ‘Scream’ and the song doesn’t score as high as ‘Soldi’ on Youtube etc. Why does Italy not score higher among bookmakers?
Is that only because of the high expectations about the performance of Russia?
That is a good question. I might have a theory. Italy has twice in recent history been presented as a frontrunner for ESC (Grande Amore in 2015, Occidentalis Karma in 2017) and it didn’t win. Russia, on the other hand, already has a track record of surpassing the odds (I mean, singing grannies got the second place over the likes of Never Forget and Nije ljubav stvar) and Sergey is a reliable performer people will vote for. Maybe the bookies are just being careful.
In the past years Italy always ranked the highest on both streaming and youtube , but eventually it never translated into a win. I think that there is also some concern regarding Italy’s live peformance. And when it comes to Russia; you can never tell. But they (usually!) get lots of points from the Ex-Soviet block and this year they sent Sergay, who is an established known artist with past sucsses in Eurovision (3rd place in 2016 and was ranked #1 with televoters that year), so everyone expects them to have an amazing staging in Tel-Aviv. At the end of… Read more »
IMHO staging is the point. My country is not that reliable about that, because of the past years. Hope Mahmood will change it, he said that Attilio Cusani is working for the staging, which is a good news.
You can’t vote for your own country, simple as that. 90% of Youtube or Spotify are from Italy.
Soldi has been 40th in Top 50 World spotify for some days, Top 50 viral in Israel, Spain and others. Gold Record in Switzerland.
Though, for some incredibly brilliant users here, if Italy goes good is because of Italians, the others not, because they are special in a magical way.
But still, only ranked 100th in Malta and 130th in Switzerland.
“Only”, you would say: “furthermore” what I’ve already said. Even the whole album is ranked 97 in Slovenia and 128 in Uzbekistan. What about the others?
I don’t know if Soldi will win the ESC, but it has won all of the ranks. Sorry for the haters.
And how many sales do you think rank 128 in Apple Music in Uzbekistan means? Or 100th in Malta’s iTunes? We have to wait till the semis and the grand final to see what the real impact of all contestants is abroad. Unfortunately esctracker isn’t updated yet for this year.
40th in Top 50 World spotify, Top 50 viral in Israel, Spain and others. Gold Record in Switzerland means nothing abroad, obv. And after 2 months.
Btw I am not saying that Soldi is for the win in the ESC, but you’re constantly telling us that all of the support is from Italy, when facts are more liable than words: these ranks are facts.
The others hasn’t been ranked abroad, apparently, following your link. A HUGE outcome for one, who was literally unknown in Italy before Sanremo.
Kworb is updated almost in real time. If you follow that site for various artists you can see that most support from all eurovision artists till now is from their own country. And yes the others also ranked abroad. Duncan was first in the Belarus iTunes a few days ago and 1st in the Hungarian iTunes last week. Both lasted for a day. Also means nothing compared with the real big selling artists like Ariana Grande etc.
Also Arcade still every Viral
The same is for every other eurovision songs!!! 90% of the streams and views are from the country which that song represent! Right? Now, can you explain me why italy have all that streams and views?! You haters are pathetic!
Because most of those streams and views are from Italians, we make massive use of Spotify and YouTube, it’s not something we do in relation to Eurovision (like “to hype the song”) or anything. They should just take us off the chart or stop posting this kind of articles altogether.
Soldi has been 40th in Top 50 World spotify (the actually one) for some days, Top 50 viral in Israel, Spain and others. Gold Record in Switzerland.
I don’t think it’s enough to justify a 30k streams difference with the second in that ranking. Not to mention the streaming parties organised to let it go double platinum or the hours long playlists to play in background and raise the count like this one https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7204V4IpMpHLZymLVNWC26?si=BzTAAL1rTRWBTZsMWNpD_Q
I’m not saying it’s a bad song and it doesn’t deserve to be amongst the favourites lol, I love it and I support Mahmood to the fullest, it’s just that us Italians can get pretty… passionate about certain stuff at times and you can’t deny it. I’m just being objective.
Not on this Spotify ranking
(Really hilarious when a factual true comment providing a source is down voted.)
Are you answering to my comment? Sorry I don’t understand what you mean with that link.
Edit: this layout is so confusing, I can’t follow this discussion anymore I’m outta here
You can choose the country and whether it is the daily or weekly chart.
John Lundvik had in the weekly chart of 18/4 856,035 streams in Sweden.
Duncan had 1,067,454 streams in the Netherlands in that same period.
Mahmood had 1,531,200 streams in Italy in that period.
So it is easy to deduct how many streams are from other countries, considering that the totals are in the table in the article above.

facts 2: https://wiwibloggs.com/2019/04/02/daily-digest-mahmood-goes-gold-in-switzerland-and-sergey-lazarev-does-madwalk-in-greece/
An article from Februari.
And so? It happened. And this is a fact, sorry.
Top 50 viral in some european countries + Israel is even more recent, you can find them with google.
You obviously don’t know what those viral rankings on Spotify mean.
As a mathematician, I can have some ideas about statistical cross-checking. That’s for the virals.
The other were the actual rankings (even the Top 50 global – not the 50 viral, the actual one)
Then I trust you are capable of deducting the weekly streams from within a country from the total streams a song had.
Don’t worry stommie we’ll hand the trophy to Duncan so you dutches will stop harassing people every-fudging-where because your country’s entry is number one forever and ever best brilliant incredible music true poetry mind blowing and everyone should vote for it cause there’s only one true winnerrrrrr.
I’m starting to relate to the Arcade haters thanks to y’all harassers
The funny thing is that I am a Duncan supporter (and a Hatari – Conan Osiris – Tulja one), and I will be happy if one of the will win. But I can’t stand that hate against Italy and Sweden here, only because every year they do well in the competition.
Same for Hatari, Conan and Tulia, and I also support Mahmood and Zala&Gasper. All in my top 5. I used to support Arcade but the dutches are getting too aggressive I can’t even.
Unfortunately, there is also a lot of hate towards The Netherlands. That causes irritation among the Dutch. In this way the circle stays round and everyone remains resentful towards each other.
I’m surprised about this envy. It is the first time that I’m interested in ESC and that I keep an eye on comments. But I don’t always like this ‘ESC-world’. Sometimes I’m ashamed of my own country.
ESC should just be fun and should be taken less seriously by some people.
Funny how you reply to nothing I have claimed or ever claimed here or on any other site.
Lol just because you didn’t outright write “Y’ALL SHOULD LOVE DUNCAN HE’S THE BEST IF YOU DON’T VOTE FOR HIM YOU’RE AN IDIOT” it doesn’t exclude that you’re actually pretty much fudging implying it. All of you are not saying it out loud, but that’s what you actually mean. I saw other people being quite full of your load of bulls**t.
Whatever dude. If that is what you conclude from this than you are beyond help.
Not a dude, BROH.
Getting downvoted for telling I’m not a man, go Very Aggressive Dutch, I love you more with each passing day king Duncan the best <3
I’m a huge fan of Mahmood and Soldi but I don’t think he will be the winner… People are expecting something different from Italy and Soldi is not that kind of music you love instantaneously (even if after 3 or 4 times you listen to it becomes a drug). The stage is another critical point ahahah
Perhaps there are more Russians placing bets on their song than there are Italians placing bets on their song?
Thank you all for your reactions. So there are different explanations, such as that the bookmakers take into account the performances of previous years. I didn’t know that.
Hungary gained more streams? I think my mom discovered Spotify.
Hahaha! Love your comment!
