The Roop Spotify Lithuania On Fire

The heat is certainly getting higher in Lithuania. Its Eurovision 2020 act The Roop is enjoying all kinds of success since winning last weekend’s Pabandom iš naujo!.

The Roop “On Fire” tops Lithuania’s Spotify Charts

This includes huge streaming figures on Lithuania’s daily Spotify chart. The electro-indie band had already spent some time inside the top ten before the national final, but post victory they’ve dominated the chart.

They first hit the top spot on Sunday 16 February, the day after they were selected. And they haven’t looked back since.

At the time of writing, The Roop have topped the chart for four consecutive days. And going off the figures, they won’t be slipping anytime soon.

That’s because they’re absolutely thrashing their competition. For instance, on Wednesday’s countdown they amassed 16,855 daily streams. The Weeknd and Billie Eilish pale by comparison at numbers two and three respectively. Streams for both their songs combined only come in at 13,263.

The Roop’s biggest day to date was on Monday 17 February when “On Fire” racked up 19,722 daily streams. That’s more than numbers two, three and four together!

The Roop “On Fire” Daily Streams

  • Sunday 16 February: 17,221 streams
  • Monday 17 February: 19,722 streams
  • Tuesday 18 February: 18,405
  • Wednesday 19 February: 16,855 streams

At the time of writing, the most recent chart available is for Wednesday 19 February. Historic chart data can be accessed here.

Also, it’s worth nothing that these figures just relate to streams from within Lithuania. Their overall streaming figures are even higher.

The Roop after Pabandom iš naujo!

It’s hardly surprising that The Roop have been able to beat such huge names on home turf. After all, they secured a record-smashing televote result in the Eurovizijos atranka final. After amendments this week, Lithuanian broadcaster LRT confirmed they received over 50,000 votes. This is around double the previous record held by 2019 selection winner Jurijus.

The group aren’t just popular in on streaming. The Baltic trio are being favoured by bookmakers across the continent, with odds as low as 8.0. That puts them in second place in the bookies’ rankings. However, with current favourite Italy’s odds drifting, will we soon see “On Fire” atop the list?

If they were to win the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam, it would be Lithuania’s first win ever. This is a feat both of their Baltic neighbours Estonia and Latvia achieved in the early 2000s. A weight would certainly be lifted! There haven’t been any winners previously with The Roop’s sound before either, though this would be difficult with their unique sound and styling.

Have you been playing “On Fire” on loop…or roop? Or have you been too busy mastering the dance moves ready for pre-party season? Leave us a comment below.

On Fire is not my favourite song, but I’m always happy to see Eurovision songs achieve commercial success

I need to practice my moves!!! Lithuania has my 12 points this year at the semi-final and also in the final, if they qualify. I totally like the meaning of the lyrics. Vilnius 2021: drop the Prada, let’s go!

Spotify isn’t really big there it seems. Around 18,000 streams a day isn’t a lot, would probably not hit top 50 in any western European country.

lol, do you know how many inhabitants Lithuania has? Three million. So it’s actually quite huge. Of course it doesn’t have hundred thousands of streams as the songs in Germany or France have.

I know perfectly well! Lol thats why I said it. It’s just a comment on how much less streams the most streamed song has there compared to other countries, which implies Spotify isn’t as widespread there. Should have had at least 60-70,000 streams per day with that population. I guess other channels are more popular there.

I still remember with horror the Baltic states wins during the 2000s and how bad it all was.
This song is no different.

Looks to me like a Euro-fans flop.

Exactly, I don’t know if it even will make the final.

I remember the horror too. Estonia and Latvia did not deserve to win those years. But this song is 100x different.

Don’t read that cheap lithuanian “journalists” posts… They just know not enough. Just write anything for not lost work probably. They probably don’t feel how bad they doing by writing things like that. I’m Lithuanian i happy so much that The Roop On Fire represents our country. And are soooo mad that some “Journalists” writing things like that with attitude… 🙁 Please ignore that. 🙂 Some people just get too much excited and writing nonsenses…

Not a fan. The song is primitive and the staging is dated.

I’ll tell you what: this one is addictive. The melody got stuck into my mind.

Looks like we have our breakout hit of the Eurovision 2020 season, especially now that this is also becoming a TikTok song (which I kinda expected tbh that Tik Tok would pick this up).

Did they mention that the video on the Eurovision YT channel passed a million views within four days of their national final win?

And now it’s 1.2 million Views six days after it was uploaded to the Fishel Eurovision channel.

Seriously I can’t stop listening to this. I’m from The Netherlands and I think this will do really really well in televote (and possibly also with the juries)

It also would be the first band to win the contest since like 2006.

Please provide us with a list of all the times this has occurred outside of Italy and Sweden before the contest.

We’ll all wait.

Not fair. Both countries have state controlled public tv stations promoting the interests of the government.

I don’t see this doing well with western European televoters. Too dated, and appalling English!

German here. This is my favourite and 3/4 my friends who are eurovision fans have it as their favourite too.
I can understand if someone says its dated. If you are a fan of this type of music then you must have heard many songs like that. But to say that his English is apalling… Makes me think that your some kind ultra british/irish nationalist where people who have accents/pronunciations are considered lower class.

They get big support from their diaspora (Sweden, Norway, UK, Ireland + neighbors) that’s already enough to be in televote top 10 in the final. So don’t underestimate the power of immigrants from poor countries. Romania, Russia, Albania, Lithuania always get points from their immigrants.

Lithuania is no way a poor country, check your stats

There’s about 20k Lithuanians in Sweden, 45k i Norway, 150k in UK and 50k in Ireland. Not everybody watch ESC and not everybody vote even if they watch. There’s no way that only 250k people make a huge impact among 200+ million viewers. Also Lithuania is not a poor country.

They are at the top of my leaderboard so far! And that’s a great candidate for a lot of points from the televote.
Quirky, visually on point and a very cleverly written song. Yes, Lithuania!

Who da fuq are the Weekend and Billie Irish? I know what the weekend is, the time of the week where you can relax and go to the bathhouse, but why is that a thing in the Lithuanian charts, guyz?

Normal.

This is hitting Top 10 for sure as long as vocals don’t majorly suck in the final.

I feel the staging theyve done really enhances what is quite simply a very basic song and melody. I can see why Europe is digging it and it is very catchy. Once youve heard it, you have to listen to it again. Will it win Eurovision though? I think its definitely top 10 material I just hope it doesnt do a Portgual 2019 and fail to qualify in its semi.

A Lithuanian song streams well in Lithuania. Wowza!!!

It’s been a slow news week.

Carola

Over simplifying much? It’s doing much more than streaming “well”… especially since in most countries bar Sweden and Italy songs struggle to chart even after Eurovision.

it’s the second biggest daily stream number in lithuania’s spotify history after mahmood’s “soldi” so it deserves to be told
