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 latest streaming update, Lithuania’s The Roop is climbing up the list.

With the March submission deadline 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 (23 February)

Along with this week’s update, we’re also providing numbers regarding the change in streams compared to last week’s figures.

# +/- Country Streams
1 = Italy 9.112.291
2 +1 Norway 1.126.721
3 -1 Spain 777.658
4 +1 Lithuania 466.721
5 -1 Australia 359.531
6 = Latvia 172.322
7 = Czech Republic 162.467
8 NEW Belgium 135.639
9 NEW France 101.467
10 -2 Armenia 67.669
11 NEW Ukraine 25.977

 

As of Sunday 23 February, Italy’s Diodato is ahead of Norway’s Ulrikke, who’s now in second place, ahead of Spain’s Blas Cantó in third position. Besides, the entries from Albania and Slovenia are yet to be released on the platform.

Rounding out the top five are Lithuania and Australia, which swap places this week. Moreover, out of the debuting entries, Belgium’s Hooverphonic make the highest debut ahead of France and Ukraine.

On the weekly chart, Italy is ahead of the pack by some distance. Norway’s Ulrikke surges in streams following her Melodi Grand Prix victory. Notably, Lithuania’s The Roop also show huge gains this week. Along with Italy, Australia’s Montaigne is the only act dropping in streams compared to her performance last week. Unfortunately, we don’t have data for Belgium’s weekly chart performance. Thus, they’ll make their debut on next week’s weekly streaming list.

Here’s why some countries receive less streams from the domestic audience

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. Eventually, 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 Italy’s Diodato? Let us know in our comments below!

There are not only spotify or Youtube platforms to listen, streaming songs. I prefer Soundcloud much nore than Spotify. 🙂 But still YouTube is first for me 🙂

official charts don’t count soundcloud, and only in the uk charts youtube counts sumthin. the rest of the european music industries only take into account – other than the shrinking digital downloads – streaming services (spotify, apple music, deezer, tidal), and apart from france where deezer originates from and has a bigger market, spotify is by far the main means of consumption of music in the main markets where it’s available. so stop complaining if u see articles bout spotify bc it’s like, single-handedly keepin the music market alive.

It probably means another Top 10 which is not bad. You don’t win Sanremo with a bad song

Ik but that was last decade. This decade was much better and Sanremo winning songs are good and the ones that went to ESC came Top 10. Fai Rumore is good, not a winner, but potential Top 10

Czech Republic is the common name used at the Eurovision, at not any time they call them Czechia.

Czech rep is so doomed. I would have assumed the modern, radio friendly sound would be a hit in Scandinavia. If it does not appeal to Nordics, I wonder what would be their target audience during competition?

I’m from Spain and Czech will probably appeal to locals here like when we gave 10 points to Mikolas (with no hype) over Eleni who had so much media buzz.
Scandinavia is not everything. I can see Iceland or Denmark voting for Czech Rep this year anyway

Czech Republic really is a “depends on the song” kind of country. At least once they’ve done amazingly well with the televote and twice they’ve done terribly.

Off topic, but, does anyone know what’s going on with Russia, Azerbaijan, Ireland and San Marino?

There are 3 potential names for Russia. (Aleksandr Panayotov, Zivert or Asker Berbekov) Ireland will most likely send either Lesley Roy or ELM. Though, ELM’s concert dates overlap with those of the rehearsals. As for Azerbaijan, there are 2 or 3 potential names. And finally, we have absolutely no idea for San Marino. However, I dare to say that they might have asked either Inis Neziri, Aly Ryan or even Elvana Gjata to represent them. Though I don’t think that Elvana would do it, both Inis and especially Aly would go for it imo. The San Marinese fan page said… Read more »
