Sound ArtSpotify Streaming Data Predicts Eurovision 2022 Winner

After last year anticipating Måneskin’s victory, Spotify is again analyzing the platform’s data to predict the winner of the 2022 edition of Eurovision.

After last year Spotify data predicted a victory for Italian hard rock band Måneskin, with “ZITTI E BUONI”, whose song was the most listened to between March and May 2021, this year Italy can repeat the victory in Eurovision. The biggest highlight of Europe’s music calendar is back – and its popularity remains stronger than ever. Spotify data reveals that streams of Eurovision playlists increased by more than 594% during the 2021 edition, with streaming of 27 million minutes, with 71% of users aged between 13 and 34 years.

The song chosen to represent Italy in 2022, “Brividi” by Mahmood and BLANCO, currently has five times more streams than “Hold Me”, by Cornelia Jakobs from Sweden, which is in second place, with the podium ending with “De Deipte ” from S10, the music of Holland. With the exception of the song chosen to represent each country, “Brivid” is the most listened to song in 28 of the 40 countries participating in the Festival da Canção in Turin. Only four countries – Spain, Luxembourg, Israel and Ireland – have won twice in a row, with Ireland managing to win three times between 1992 and 1994.

The song that will represent Portugal, “Saudade, Saudade” by MARO, has grown exponentially since the announcement of the victory at the Festival da Canção, having grown by more than 1000% and has already surpassed 2 million streams. According to Spotify data on the songs participating in Eurovision with the most streams, “saudade, saudade” is in 12th place, which should guarantee a place in the final in Turin, on May 14.

Spotify also recalls the favorites from previous editions of Eurovision, which includes the winning Portuguese song “Amar Pelos Dois”, by Salvador Sobral, with 88% of streams in 2021 coming from abroad, from countries such as Spain or the Netherlands. Contrary to what you would expect, Arcade, by Duncan Lawrence, Dutch winner of the 2019 edition, got more streams between April 2021 and March 2022 than “ZITTI E BUONI”, by Måneskin, winners of the last edition.

Festival fans can also enjoy an extensive catalog of playlists for every mood and occasion, including Eurovision Winners, Eurovision Party and Eurovision Ballads – with entries from previous years – and playlists by decade – Eurovison 10s, 00s, 90s, 80s, and Eurovision Gold (with music from the 50s, 60s & 70s) – which celebrate European musical culture.
