Ukraine Kalush Orchestra Stefania Eurovision 2022
EBU / Andres Putting

Only one country walks away with the Eurovision trophy. But plenty more walk away as winners. Just act the 23 Eurovision 2022 artists who currently have songs in the Spotify Global Viral Top 50!

Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra lead the way with their winning song “Stefania,” which currently sits at #3. That puts them just ahead of Moldova’s Zdob si Zdub & Fratii Advahov (#4) and Latvia’s Citi Zeni (#6). 

Norway’s Subwoolfer (who are #1 on the Viral charts in Australia, Austria, Israel, and Ukraine) are the only other act in the Top 10.

The highest-charting Big 5 entry comes from Germany. Malik Harris is currently at #26 with “Rockstars”, which puts him ahead of Spain’s Chanel (#30), the UK’s Sam Ryder (#31), and France’s Alvan & Ahez (#33). Italy’s Mahmood & Blanco do not feature on the Top 50, though they did reach the Top 5 of the chart following the Sanremo Festival in February.

The UK’s Sam Ryder has hit #1 in his home market.

After seeing Måneskin crack the Billboard charts in the U.S. with one of their follow-ups, and Duncan Laurence go gold here with “Arcade”, 2 years after it made its debut on the ESC stage and 4 years after a preliminary version (which he performed) was posted at YouTube, I’m anticipating that both Sam and Kalush will crack the Billboard charts and peak fairly high on the Hot 100.

Nerdy as I am I made some maths to see how the different songs are played outside their own country. (I took the total streams and substracted the domestic streams)
It brings some changes in the list:
Ukraine being clearly the most played outside of Ukraine, and Sweden and Norway passing UK and Spain in the list.

1 Ukraine 1 876 687
2 Norway 936 116
3 Sweden 903 507
4 Uk 889 898
5 Spain 809 550
6 Italy 682 921

Swedish seeing slightly more play than the U.K. isn’t that surprising. It’s not like the U.K. beat Sweden by much in the televote, a mere 3 points. Likewise, Sweden’s only beating the U.K. by 14000 plays according to your statistics. I’m surprised Spain isn’t beating Sweden and the U.K., but I assume that’s because Spain was more a visual spectacular and people didn’t really care too much about the song itself.

But where’s Moldova?

When it comes to my personal taste, I found it surprising that before the contest I was listening to pretty much every song from the big 5 except for Germany and now after the contest it is Germany that got stuck in my head. Can’t explain why! I did not pay attention to this song at all before. Funny how that works. You never know when and why a particular song just gets stuck in your head.

You can see here what people really like. We are influenced by specific taste of ESC fans before the contest. They are obsessed with average female pop like Andromache, Amanda etc. Now you can see that other people doesnt care about this type of songs. Fans gave Moldova on last places in their almost every personal ranking. People could think this is really bad song. The reality is, thats the 2nd most popular song in Europe. Thanks God that ESC fans are not the only ones who votes in Eurovision.

My personal opinion as a Swede: I love Eurovision, but i think EBU really needs to step up the visibility of the winner post contest.
Something is off if on the second day, the winner of a national contest (Brividi in Sanremo) is streamed by more than 3.500.000 people, while Stefania is streamed by “only” 2.000.000. The contest needs to be entertaining for us, but it should also be an attractive platform for the artists.

Some context since Eurofans don’t seem to know this: Of those 3.5 million streams, nearly 3.4 million were in Italy. Blanco was already a huge star prior to Sanremo and Mahmood was a former winner. They have large fan bases and incredibly busy careers, which is why they were both touring right up to ESC rehearsals. It’s not a fair comparison to look at the success of established artists within their own country singing their own language, and compare it to the first 24 hours of a Ukrainian artist exposed to the rest of Europe for the first time.

That is not accurate: Brividi reached almost 1.000.000 streams in Europe, not 100.000: it peaked at #1 in Switzerland, and it reached top 10 in many more countries. I think it is pretty obvious that most streams were in Italy, as Brividi’s performance is average right now in Europe. However, it still does not change the fact that a national selection can be a better platform than Eurovision, which shouldn’t be the case. None of the songs in Mahmood’s Ghettolimpo (one of my favorite albums) even showed up in the top 10 in Italy; Blanco was fairly unknown to the… Read more »

For the sake of clarification, by no means I am saying Eurovision is not a good platform. If you are talented, it is a great chance to let the public know your music.

However, I think it does not provide enough visibility to the winner after the concert ends. Considering how popular Eurovision is, the streams are not enough.

The marketing support provided to the artist should continue way beyond the night of the contest.

I was discussing the numbers for the first day after Brividi was released since that’s all we have to compare with Stefania’s first day post-Eurovision. Brividi was streamed in Italy 3,384,192 times the day after it debuted at Sanremo, nearly doubling the previous streaming record. I wasn’t trying to say it didn’t become known outside Italy after that, but that the impressive numbers that put it in the top 10 on Spotify were due to its popularity at home. Sanremo provides a huge platform *within Italy*, but we’re discussing popular artists in their own country (Blanco was on 4 of… Read more »

I don’t think acknowledging the limits that EBU has in promoting winners equals to discredit them. I have often highlighted the strengths (although i do think the improvements of last years are thanks to an overall increase in the quality of entries starting from the 2010s, rather than to a shift in the management). I do understand that a deep comparison between a national contest and international contest is not accurate due to the difference in contexts. But this exactly what i am trying to point out: Sanremo’s songs have a total market of 60.000.000 people (population of Italy), and… Read more »

The EBU is in a strange place right now as two, somewhat opposing, views of Eurovision clash: is it a serious music competition that can launch emerging artists to fame such as with Måneskin? Or is it a silly and camp extravaganza that is at its worst when it takes itself too seriously (the overload of ballads)? Some countries and artists believe the former, but many hold onto the latter. These are the shifting attitudes Eurovision has to juggle in a reputation rebuild from the 2000s era, but without pushing away casual fans. That means that many viewers do turn… Read more »

I think rather than being torn between two movements, Eurovision is once again in the midst of an inevitable generational shifts, and it seems EBU is fighting to keep the status quo. The times of musically mediocre but kitsch performances ended after Loreen’s landslide victory in 2011. Since then, a sort of Melodifestivalen era began, with songs really affected by Swedish norms. You still had extravagant and entertaining winners, but now the music needed to be well produced (Rise like a Phoenix, Toy) and yet most of the wins of the last decade were “tuned down” (Heroes, Only Teardrops etc).… Read more »

Yes. It might help a little to stop geo-blocking the contest and performance videos. The record companies should want to increase exposure of their artists around the world, and The ESC should stand up to the record companies in contract negotiations around this geo-blocking nonsense. Geo-blocking hurts the artists and the fans.

To be honest, I didn’t mind the booty hypnotic part of it at all either, especially the really cute brunette girl next to Chanel, it’s just the song that I really never cared too much about so I had to rank it accordingly, hopefully next year I’ll get to be more positive about their entry…

Live performances are the main source of income for a lot of artists; most money from music sales goes to record companies, unless you’re not on a label and self-publish stuff.
That’s how there a lot of artists from niche genres who never chart, yet they still do well for themselves. Most of my music library consists of classical singers and you never really see their albums or tracks chart.
But I concede, charts are important in popular music. If for nothing else, at least they gave stans ammo and serve as for methaphoric dick-measuring contests.

You are right, but this mostly applies to niche artists. Eurovision is meant to take these artists out of the niche and show them to millions of people, or expand their audience if they are already big.
On a macro-level, especially in a world emerging from two years of pandemic, charts increase visibility. And visibility guarantees sponsorships, partnerships and advertisements. The implications are beyond the direct revenues of charts (we all know how platform like Spotify effectively steal profits from artists)

It’s not disappointing when almost the entire albums of Kendrick Lamar and Bad Bunny are ahead of it as they are major world wide artists taking up most of the spots.

Also Stefania is the only Eurovision song on the global top 50 rn so how is that disappointing for Stefania???

Yeah I definitely agree that I wish more artists from success post Eurovision… I do think Måneskin is more marketable than Kalush Orchestra and success is relative so I still think Stefania being the highest charting Ukrainian song, the current most daily streamed song of any Eurovision 2022 songs can still be counted as a success. Success for one artists looks different for another!

The viral chart holds less merit than the overall chart, from Spotify “ Spotify Viral Charts capture the songs gaining the most buzz on Spotify.

Brividi reached #5 on the Spotify Top Global, not the Viral Top 50 mentioned in this article. Being on the Top Global list is way more difficult as it gives an honest representation of how many people are actually streaming the song. Of this year’s songs only Stefania is currently trending at #38.

Not sure if we can use the word ‘honest’. Most of the actual streams are taking place in its own country (see Italy for example) or a few countries. The Viral chart shows the global reach which is not affected by local streams. It also has the buzz (sharing, new listens) which shows the impact.
