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.

Top 10 most-streamed Eurovision 2021 songs

Following hot on the heels of Spotify’s 2021 Wrapped experience, the EBU and MRC Data came together to crunch the numbers across all the major music streaming apps — Amazon, Apple, Audiomack, Napster/Rhapsody, Pandora, Qobuz, SoundCloud, Spotify, TIDAL, YouTube Audio, MediaNet, MyMixTapez and Slacker. And, based on this data, they’ve compiled the top ten most-streamed Eurovision 2021 songs of the year.

The top ten is: 

  1. Italy: Måneskin – Zitti E Buoni 299,200,000
  2. Ukraine: Go_A – Shum 61,800,000
  3. Finland: Blind Channel – Dark Side 45,700,000
  4. France: Barbara Pravi – Voilà 43,900,000
  5. Sweden: Tusse – Voices 34,800,000
  6. Cyprus: Elena Tsagrinou -El Diablo 33,700,000
  7. Iceland: Daði og Gagnamagnið – 10 Years 29,100,000
  8. Switzerland: Gjon’s Tears – Tout L’Univers 26,500,000
  9. Norway: TIX – Fallen Angel 22,400,000
  10. Azerbaijan: Efendi – Mata Hari 21,700,000

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”.

What do you think of the streaming success? What was your most-played Eurovision song?

I’m curious if anyone knows the numbers from just after Eurovision to compare to now. Which of these songs has stood the (six month) test of time post ESC? For example, I think Shum exploded later than others, whereas I believe Voices was one of the biggest songs before the GF.

Not surprising some of them are still salty but the Tusse and Barbara’s successes are proven with these huge numbers here and are real and will stay forever, Voilà is not a streaming song friendly in his essence on the opposite of the others, it is more a song to see in live, a song to feel rather than a song you listen on repeat so her success in these platforms is even more impressive for that. So the haters we don’t care.

the landslide lmao… and 2021 ain’t over yet, zitti e buoni will have 300m+ in a couple of days. also impressive numbers for ukraine, iceland, cyprus and azerbaijan, considering they’re very small music markets it means that their songs connected well with the public abroad.

Esc 2021 is so far the most successful in terms of streaming ever and I hope this trend will continue for the artists the next years. 10 songs coming from the same contest getting each at least more than 20 millions of streams it’s huge! Great achievement! It means the quality is increasing in Eurovision imo and it’s cool.

It might also mean that the show has managed to once again reach a younger audience. Which is essential for the Eurovision’s longterm success.
