  • While several Eurovision 2021 entries have been going viral across the globe, some of them have achieved to enter the Billboard Global Top 200 chart. 

    Eurovision 2021 songs are riding the wave of success as several entries we saw competing in Rotterdam have met massive acceptance and success worldwide. This fact is confirmed by the fact that some of those entries have already entered the top 200 Billboard chart. 

    Namely, the songs performed by the ESC 2021 winners, Italy's Maneskin, France's Barbara Pravi and the folk band from Ukraine, Go_A, have achieved to enter the Billboard 200 Chart. 

    Måneskin's song “Zitti e buoni”  debuted at number 26, while “Voilà” by Barbara Pravi entered the Billboard’s Global Top 200 Chart at number 70.

    Go_A have entered the chart at number 80 with their song “SHUM”. In Addtion the Ukrainian entry, “SHUM” has also achieved a Number 27 placing on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and number 12 on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart. This mark the first time an Ukraining song achieves to enter the Billboard’s Global Top 200 Chart. 

    The previous months the ESC 2019 winning song  “Arcade” performed by Dutch act, Duncan Laurence,  entered the Billboard Top 100 Charts  becoming the first Eurovision entry to enter the Billboard Charts since 1996,  entering  chart at Number 100. Last time this happened was back in back in 1996 the United Kingdom's entry, ‘Ooh Aah… Just a Little Bit‘ performed by Gina G,  charted at No.12. “Arcade” has become a hit in the US following its use on the social media platform TikTok and the singer’s appearances in the past weeks on a number of US TV shows. The week running the song is for a 17th week in the chart spotted at number 50.

    In addtion to all this and  continuing their path of success the Eurovision entries since the day the were released and further on during and after the song contest in Rotterdam , are achieving remarkable placings on the Spotify charts across the globe.
