Eurovision 2020 is just a few months away and our Spotify playlist is slowly filling up. In our weekly update, we’ll once again keep track of how the competing Eurovision songs are performing. With our first update of 2020, Italy’s Diodato and Spain’s Blas Cantó debut on top.
With the submission deadline in March still a few weeks away, most countries are yet to reveal or even select their entries. However, there’s more to come this month with several national finals as well as internal selections.
Once more entries have been revealed, we’ll also add sections looking into the streaming statistics on other platforms, such as Apple Music and YouTube.
Eurovision 2020 Spotify total streaming charts (9 February)
Along with this week’s update, we’re also providing numbers regarding the change in streams compared to last week’s figure starting next week.
As of Sunday 9 February, Italy’s Diodato is ahead of Spain’s Blas Cantó and Australia’s Montaigne. Albania’s entry “Shaj” from Arilena Ara is yet to be released on the platform.
Rounding out the top five are the Czech Republic and Latvia.
Notably, Spotify’s consumption rate differs among the competing countries. While it’s particularly big in the Northern and Western countries, Spotify is yet to be available in some Balkan and Eastern European countries. Nevertheless, it might suggest which songs are currently receiving lots of streams and gains in popularity. At this very early stage, it’s fair to assume that most of these streams are from the domestic audience. As the hype train builds on the road to Eurovision, however, music will definitely be streaming across borders.
