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)

# +/- Country Streams
1 NEW Italy 740.662
2 NEW Spain 279.346
3 NEW Australia 91.605
4 NEW Czech Republic 67.721
5 NEW Latvia 59.313

 

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.

What do you think about the current Spotify stats? Do the latest numbers indicate positive reactions for Blas Cantó? Let us know in our comments below!

Why the hell has the official ESC website removed Diodato from the list of 2020 participants?

Erika Vikman Cicciolina would be in 2nd place. And she hasn’t even won yet and UMK isn’t even a huge national music festival like San Remo is. Erika is doing well.

The odds make me MAD and SAD. Latvia 38/41 and Australia ,Italy top 2. No for me it does not make sense. i guess its beacuse they are so big. All the small ones is in the bottom to win.

Italy has the trend + Fai Rumore is currently charting across the continent on Itunes. Sanremo winning songs had that power idk.
Australia idk

Odds mean nothing when only 6 songs have been released. When all 41 songs have been released, then play attention!

Well these updates are the most pointless. A lot of European countries don’t have Spotify + some countries are way bigger than others so it doesn’t really matter which ones have the most streams since it isn’t based on the song but rather on the country.

You’re right except for Erika Vikman’s Cicciolina. It has nearly as much streams as Italy’s song already, and it hasn’t even won. And Finland is a small country population-wise too =)

As much as I love “Fai rumore”, we need to take Spotify streams for Italy with a hefty pinch of salt. We’ve got to remember that Sanremo is more than merely a national selection for Eurovision – it’s one of the biggest nights in Italian music and TV so the winner is obviously going to get streamed a lot, as did happen for “Soldi” last year.
