It’s almost two weeks since the grand final of Eurovision 2021 but its top songs are still making an impact. Songs from winners Måneskin, runner-up Barbara Pravi and televote runner-up Go_A have all made an appearance in this week’s Billboard Global Excl. U.S. Chart.
The Billboard Global Excl. U.S. Chart is based on overall streams and download sales of singles, and focuses on all territories outside the United States.
Måneskin are the highest placed Eurovision 2021 act. Their single “Zitti e buoni” has reached No.11 in the chart. The song first entered the Global Excl. U.S. Chart back in March, following Måneskin’s Sanremo win. Back then, the song only made it as high as No.106, whereas the impact of Eurovision has seen the song almost make it to the top ten this week.
The Italian rockers have also made the chart with their album track “I Wanna Be Your Slave”. The song — which Måneskin performed live at the Wiwi Jam at Home 2021 — has reached No.73 in the chart.
France’s chanteuse Barbara Pravi also makes an appearance in the chart. Her song “Voilà” has reached No.70 in the chart, bringing some French style to the international chart.
A little further down the list, Ukraine’s techno-folk stars Go_A are at No.80. Their song “SHUM” is seeing in the spring for listeners around the world.
All Eurovision 2021 acts to feature in the chart have songs with lyrics not in English.
Also featuring on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. Chart is Eurovision 2019 winner Duncan Laurence. His winning song and later popular viral hit “Arcade” is at No.37, clocking up 17 weeks on the chart.
As well, the Billboard Global 200 chart looks at the most popular songs in the world — including the United States. On that chart, Måneskin have made it to No.26 with “Zitti e buoni”, while Duncan Laurence is at No.50 with “Aracde”.
Måneskin chalk up more successes
Meanwhile, Måneskin continue to chalk up more successes following their Eurovision 2021 win. The group is set to have two songs in the UK top 40. The mid-week singles chart update indicates that the group’s album track “I Wanna Be Your Slave” will join “Zitti e buoni” in the coming week’s chart.

Over on Spotify, Måneskin are now among the top 500 most popular artists on the music platform. Specifically, the group have earned a rank of #464 in the world. As lead singer Damiano David said on a recent Instagram story, it’s a big achievement considering some said the band wouldn’t even last beyond their time on the X Factor Italia.
Måneskin have also clocked up over 10 million months listened on Spotify, showing that their Eurovision win has earned them a substantial new fanbase.
