Eurovision 2020 is just a few months away and our Spotify playlist is slowly filling up. In our weekly update, we’re once again keeping track of how the competing Eurovision songs are performing. With our latest streaming update,  Iceland’s Daði & Gagnamagnið picks up in streams while Sweden lands a strong debut on the list.

With the March submission deadline only a few days away, most countries have selected their entries. However, there’s more to come with a few remaining internal selections.

Once all of the entries have been revealed, we’ll also add sections looking into the streaming statistics on other platforms, such as Apple Music and YouTube.

As of Sunday 8 March, Italy’s Diodato is ahead of both Norway’s Ulrikke and Sweden’s The Mamas, who enter in third position. Rounding out the top five are Spain and Iceland, which enters the top five for the first time.

Furthermore, out of the debuting entries, Sweden’s The Mamas make the highest debut ahead of the Netherlands’ Jeangu Macrooy and Finland’s Aksel. And just behind, Poland, Estonia, Belarus and Moldova also make their debut on this week’s list.

The entries from Albania, Slovenia and Croatia are yet to be released on the platform.

On the weekly chart, Italy is ahead of the pack by some distance. However, following their national final victory, Iceland’s Daði & Gagnamagnið are catching up. Norway’s Ulrikke is down by one in third place. Notably, Germany and the United Kingdom both debut in the top ten most-streamed songs of the past week. Moreover, other than Italy and Norway, all entries received more streams compared to the previous week.

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 Sweden’s The Mamas? Let us know in our comments below!

Thx to bulgaria for kicking iceland from the first place in the odds. Karma is a bitch….iceland knows only to spread hate in eurovision, no one forgot what happened last year in israel.
0 points to iceland this year.
Thx everyone, lesson should be learned

Offcourse not, iceland should be banned this year because they deserve it…you get what you wish for, and they even continued to spread hate against israel in this year national selection…paying a ticket for what they did isnt enough, they didn’t even apologize so again 0 points to iceland this year, thx everyone, lets keep eurovision clean from politics. This will be the lesson

I’m worried about this year’s trend of favorites not winning their NFs, being projected onto Eurovision itself. Can you imagine Estonia or France winning???

I hope my country Sweden flops big time so that SVT will make some changes for 2021. The voting system is not working and the contest needs a revamp.

Denis
Guest

Honestly I think Dotter fans just should realise she wasn’t the big favourite and that Swedes didn’t think she was that good. No need wishing for acts to flop because you feel robbed. You dont have to support but you could just say wish them all the best

Helene
Guest

Well it is not clear that the Mamas are the winners either in terms of being the public choice. It is not about not liking them as persons – it is that the wrong song might have won because if a new system.

Milla
Guest

I’m not sure The Mamas won the televotes without the age groups. The age groups need to go. There isn’t such a thing in Esc. It’s so silly. Many times young people get the music industry a whole lot better . They embrace new sounds and visiuals. While people over 50: “They sing good and has a catchy song”. It doesn’t matter if it has a dated sound.

Robyn Gallagher

SVT have already confirmed that The Mamas had the highest number of televotes overall. The full Mello results breakdown will be released on Wednesday.

I don’t think it was the people over 50 as ju stated a coupe of times. I think it was the children. If you think about it, it was not a clear song for the Young kids this year, as Arvingarna was last year. The mamas was the closest to a catchy song that the children likes.
I haven’t heard anyone in their 50ies who had the mamas as favorite

Helene

I think Hanna Ferm won the kids.

Elin

I think a lot of children voted for the Mamas, Hanna and Anis.

Well, a lot of people I know had the Mamas as their favorite. They are 40-55 years old. Dotter was my favourite

Lolek
Guest
Lolek

Likewise Dotter was my favourite – she would have been my #1 choice to win eurovision. However we must accept that Sweden legitimately chose the Mama’s as their representatives (and they have amazing voices and brilliant personalities). Seeing how happy Dotter is with her outcome makes me happy and accepting of the outcome.

FanESC

She was my favorite but she wasn’t that good live though, did we hear the same live ? The SF one wasn’t amazing already and the one in final was even worse while The Mamas did the job more than perfectly.

Polliu

Pathetic much? Dotter fans are so ridiculous. Your Dotter is not that amazing ‘cuz Swedish people voted for The Mamas. Get over it!

Citizen of Memel

Personally, I wasn’t following Melfest at all – just heard a few songs but nothing major. And I think that both, “Bulletproof” and “Kingdom Come” had better chances in the Eurovision. I just don’t get The Mamas – all I hear is noise.

Helene

Yes now Sweden is falling in the odds…

Denis

Eh, it’s not. It’s somewhere around the same spot it was when Dotter was thought to be the winner.

No it wont down to 10th place from eight. It. Would have been going up if Dotter won. The numbers are red. So it might go down further.

And now Sweden is in 12th place still red and falling

The real winner of Melodifestivalen Dotter has way more streams and are number one on Spotify in Sweden. So sad.

Hmmm… I am still sad about Dotter… But on the other hand. I honestly loved Cry from 2018 more… and now we might see Dotter more times in melfest whith an even amazing song.

Trying to change perspective and join team Sweden that support and cheer for three amaizing singers whith fantastic personalities and hope for them to reach the grand final .

Helene
Guest
Helene

Have you seen how Sweden falls in the odds… I am still sad. I never liked Melodifestivalen that much, but now I dislike it. when the whole circus ends up with a song that might not quality. I love Eurovision and Melodifestivalen should be able to bring out the best possible winner. Some people here are just happy that Sweden has less chances.

Are Azerbaijan, Russia, Malta going to be out of the contest? They still havent released their songs and the dead line is like in a couple of hours. I hate the fact that they wait until the very last second, like theyre the best ans are the most anticipated ones.. So self centered, its gross.

Adrian
Guest

Actually, today is just the deadline to submit their entry to the EBU, they can released their entry later than today if delegations wish to, I think it has happened before in 2016 with Armenia, Malta both revealing their entry after the submission deadline.

uzhas
Guest
uzhas

no, what’s gross is ESC fan attitude.
It is the deadline for submitting their entries to EBU, which they have very likely already done.

Maybe they are still working on music videos or are planning something for the song premiere.

Liam Lindsay

Granted, its not the best performance in the world but you have to consider that this may well be the first time he sung it live, he could be reserving his vocals for the Pre-Parties and the contest itself. One underwhelming performance before the contest does not a last placer make. There is a lot to praise with the UK Entry this year and the response has been much more positive than the past 5 years combined at this stage of the competition. Furthermore, given who we have for staging, this will do very well, not winning mind you but… Read more »

There are 12 songs in SF1 I really want to see in the GF, and only 4 songs from SF2 that I think are really worthy of going to the final. It’s a shame the semis are so unbalanced.

Jimmy Smit

Ok, here’s my list for SF1, based on everything we know and can expect, I’d predict the following qualifiers in the following order: 1. Lithuania 2. Russia 3. Sweden 4. Malta 5. Norway 6. Australia 7. Romania 8. Ukraine 9. Israel 10. Ireland (or Azerbaijan, depending on what they reveal) That order isn’t quite my personal ranking but I think they all deserve to go through to the final. I would guess that Lithuania will win the SF1 televote and that Sweden and The Mamas’ vocals will win the jury vote. I would also like to see at least Belgium… Read more »

I think it’s probably because it has a huge non-Eurovision audience in Italy due to Sanremo. It’s also leading by a lot in YouTube views
