Eurovision 2022 may be over, but plenty of its songs are still reaching the masses, as we can see on the Billboard Global 200 chart.
As Billboard explains, “the chart ranks the top songs globally and is based on digital sales and online streaming from over 200 territories worldwide.”
For the week of 28 May 2022, Harry Styles once again finds himself at the top with “As It Was” (the only song to beat the UK’s Sam Ryder and “Space Man” on the official UK charts this week).
Behind him we have Kendrick Lamar with “N95” and Bad Bunny with “Moscow Mule”.
And further down the list we’ve spotted three acts from Eurovision 2022: Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra, the UK’s Sam Ryder, and Spain’s Chanel.
The Ukrainians lead the way for Eurovision stars. Their winning song “Stefania” debuts on the list at #85 — just behind Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” and just ahead of The Kid LAROI’s “Thousand Miles”.
Further down the list, Sam Ryder’s “Space Man” has hit #93 (moving him ahead of Charlie Puth’s “Light Switch” and Doja Cat’s “Kiss Me More”).
Down at #151 we have Chanel’s “SloMo”, which is one spot ahead of Sia’s “Unstoppable”.
They are not doing as well as last year’s entries…
I’m disappointed that, for all the bluster about changing attitudes, there are not more Eurovision songs in the UK charts. Scott Mills, Rylan Clark, play some on your shows.
I believe Italy’s “Brividi” also peaked at 15 on the same chart following its release.
It’s nice to see people are still streaming Eurovision songs. Space Man and SloMo have consistent streaming numbers post-contest even though the fandom said were overrated. Space Man entered the Spotify Viral 50 in Japan at one point last week.
I see a lot of people still trying to convince everyone that ‘Stefania’ is the best ESC song ever. Just stop being ridiculous hypocrites. It would have never won Eurovision if that inhuman war didn’t happen.
I think you should get over it. They won, it’s over.
I know it’s over, contrary to the people that keep overcomplimenting ‘Stefania’ and convincing everyone its victory was fair and square. That’s just my 3rd comment here on Ukraine victory
They didn’t though. The UK won fair and square. The Ukraine won fair and circle.
It was proved that Spain would’ve won if Ukraine didn’t participate.
The UK would’ve come 2nd in either scenario.
Serbia would be in top 3
There’s no way of ever knowing where those 400 televote points would have gone if not to Ukraine… so you’re both wrong, in my opinion.
In Eurovision anything can happen, so for all we know, Stefania could have won even without the war. It’s an amazing song and would definitely have received a high score in the televote anyway
Keep being delusional. Without the war, Ukraine would just be around 5-10. Chanel or Sam would have won.
totally agree… Without war Ukraine had no chance of winning
It’s top 10 material but definitely NOT winner material. Though, Alina Pash’s ‘Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors’ may have done even better!
I guess you are the booty hypnotic fan? Damn that song was beyond awful.
Be careful about speaking the truth here. Some people will just never accept music is supposed to be heard with your ears and heart – not with your eyes and crotch.
Yeah, but mostly a proud ‘Space Man’ stan. At least ‘SloMo’ is less awful than Kalush Orchestra victory based on Europeans pity.
What are you trying to prove? Maybe Stefania wouldn’t have won without the war. Maybe Rise Like a Phoenix wouldn’t have won if it was sung by someone else. Maybe Dima Bilan didn’t win purely based on his song. There’s always other circumstances involved. Get over it, and accept that Europe chose Kalush.
It isn’t the best song ever, but it was probably the biggest moment ever in the contest. Those six lads singing their hearts, out having crawled over broken glass to even get on the Eurovision stage. I don’t see any reason why we should complain that televoters (i.e. us) reacted in the way they did.
And if my aunt had balls, she would have been my uncle…
What does it even mean “Ukraine would have never won without the war”! The war is there, and Ukraine won, period!
Stop with these nonsense hypothetical scenarios that are totally pointless.
I think it’s now safe to say, and we should all agree that Stefania is the greatest ESC song of all time. Waterloo comes close second. Eurohoria rounds up the top 3. Ukrainian result had nothing, and I can’t stress enough – NOTHING to do with the war, as they would have probably got even more points had the situation been different. In fact, next year should be non-competitive and Stefania should be proclaimed the first ever consecutive winner song. That’s how one of a kind it is. Period! P.S. Have I mentioned that this has nothing to do with… Read more »
Russian troll detected
Troll, yes but I don’t think they’re Russian. They wouldn’t be this happy about Stefania winning
they’re not happy, they’re clearly trolling the song
What’s “Eurohoria”? Not heard that one.
P.S. To this ”troll’s” mind Russian politics (one of the most undignifying in the history of politics since history is being recorded) does not equal all of its artists. This ”troll” would never set foot in Russia in their lifetime due to the lack of respect for human rights in that uncivilised country. Not every reaction equals to taking sides. This ”troll” is on the side of Eurovision and sees beyond what meets the eye. To this ”troll” casting a vote at Eurovision and in that way showing support for a country broken by unrest and weapons means nothing. This… Read more »
What an achievement. It’s incredible seeing a song in Ukrainian chart so high. The last Ukrainian song I remember that charted internationally was Plakala by KAZKA.
I hope Kalush can make an international career out of their Eurovision win before May 2023. I know they have more obvious things to worry about right now, but I’m afraid their name will start to fade. Let’s just hope Europe remembers their name and streams their future music, no matter when they release a new song.
Actually, Ukraine’s Go A was in Billboard charts last year too.
Further proof that people actually liked Ukraine’s entry, and it wasn’t a pity vote.
Ukraine won due to the war, period.
Denying the effect the war had on Europe’s televoting this year is ridiculous. The song is great by the way, but come on, don’t deny the obvious.
I dislike it immensely when people put Ukraines success solely down to ‘sympathy’ votes. It was more than just sympathy. The song itsself would’ve made the top 5 without the sympathy aspect because it was a hard hitting song, melodically cultural in sound, performed amazingly and staged beautifully. It’s one of those songs that works really well on a large stage, but could also translate well to a street performance. Kalush have that perfect performance that works across all platforms. The fact that they have even charted in the UK top 40 is incredible in itsself. Non British Eurovision songs… Read more »
Absent the war I suspect Ukraine would have received an exaggerated version of what they got last year. A strong finish among televoters and a flop among the juries.
cool how top 3 starts with ‘S’ 😀
Stefania * Spaceman * Slomo
btw Sam said in few interviews he dreams to colab with Kalush guys and they’re sending demos to each other, hope we will see it as interval act of esc2023 please
Is Stefania now the highest charting Ukrainian song (ever, not just for ESC songs)? If I recall correctly, it’s done better than Shum.
Stefania trending in charts that’s what i love to see, such amazing and unique song, a dope
Eurovision 2022 top 10 is amazing plus the Netherlands, I simply adore the contest 🙂
I don’t really get Harry Styles. I mean, it’s very admirable that he doesn’t care about what a “man” should be wearing or doing… but it just feels put together by corporate stylists to me. Damiano David is the real thing.
Am I wrong? I could be wrong.
Though I’m liking Harry’s new songs I also feel that part of him to be off, like too manufactured and annoying while Damiano comes off as more genuine in that aspect
Yeah, like it’s for publicity or just to build some sort of Bowie-like persona. Maybe it doesn’t matter what the reasons are if it’s doing some sort of good.
I was cringing listening to the radio earlier as Harry Styles was in the BBC Live Lounge and he did a cover called “Wet Dream” and the lyrics were exactly as you would expect. I don’t understand the hype but every song from his album will be in the charts this week.
Most people only listen to what they are spoonfed by celebrity culture. This is why I really don’t care about charts, and why the achievement of Kalush Orchestra at 85 is actually more impressive than Harry at number one.
Good luck to Harry but he wouldn’t last five minutes on the Eurovision stage
