It’s news that will shock no one. Måneskin’s “Zitti E Buoni” has topped the year-end list of most-streamed Eurovision 2021 songs. The Italians amassed almost 300,000,000 streams of their winning entry across multiple platforms.
And while the rest of the top ten didn’t come anywhere near the group’s figures, they still had a stellar year of streaming. The entire top ten surpassed 20,000,000 individual plays each.

Eurovision 2021 songs and streaming
Måneskin, of course, have had a phenomenal year. In addition to topping the list of Eurovision songs, they’ve also made it onto Spotify’s overall global list of most-played songs. The Italian champs are at #10 with their 2017 cover of “Beggin’”. Further down the list, we find their first post-Rotterdam single “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE”. The Wiwi Jam at Home favourite is at #34 globally.
And the rest of class of 2021 performed rather well too! In the days immediately after the contest, eleven acts cracked Spotify’s global top 200 — Italy’s Måneskin, France’s Barbara Pravi, Finland’s Blind Channel, Ukraine’s Go_A, Switzerland’s Gjon’s Tears, Iceland’s Daði og Gagnamagnið, Cyprus’ Elena Tsagrinou, Malta’s Destiny, The Roop, Sweden’s Tusse and Azerbaijan’s Efendi. Even more made the global viral chart.
Several acts also achieved national milestones. Blind Channel scored the most-streamed Spotify song of 2021 in Finland with “Dark Side“, while TIX was the most-streamed homegrown artist in Norway.
Meanwhile, Eurovision 2019 winner Duncan Laurence continues to win over new fans, joining Måneskin inside the global top 50 for 2021 with “Arcade”.
