Sound ArtSpotify Streaming Data predicts the winner of Eurovision 2022

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

After last year, Spotify data predicted the victory of Italian hard rock band Måneskin, with their song ZITTI E BUONI, which was their most listened song between March and May 2021, Italy this year can repeat the victory at Eurovision. The main highlight of Europe’s music calendar is back – and its popularity is still stronger than ever. Spotify data reveals that Eurovision playlist streams increased by more than 594% during the 2021 release, with 27 million minutes streamed, with 71% of users aged 13-34.

The song chosen to represent Italy in 2022, Mahmoud and Blanco’s “Brividi”, currently has five times as many songs from Hold Me, by Cornelia Jacobs of Sweden, which took second place, with the podium ending with “De Deipte” from the S10, music Holland. Excluding the song chosen to represent each country, “Prived” is the most listened to in 28 of the 40 participating countries at the Cansau Festival in Turin. Only four countries – Spain, Luxembourg, Israel and Ireland – have won twice in a row, while Ireland managed to win three times between 1992 and 1994.

The song that will represent Portugal, “Saudade, Saudade” by MARO, has grown exponentially since the victory was announced at the Cansao Festival, having grown by more than 1,000% and already surpassing 2 million songs. According to Spotify’s data on the songs participating in Eurovision with the most streams, “saudade, saudade” took 12th place, securing a place in the final in Turin, on May 14.

Spotify also mentions favorite songs 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 countries like Spain or the Netherlands. Contrary to what you might expect, the Arcade game, written by Duncan Lawrence, winner of the 2019 edition of the Dutch edition, had more streams between April 2021 and March 2022 than the “ZITTI E BUONI” of the winners of the latest edition of Måneskin.

Festival fans can also enjoy an expanded list of playlists for every mood and occasion, including Eurovision winners, Eurovision Party and Eurovision Ballads – with entries from previous years – and playlists by decade – Eurovision 10s, 00s, 90s, 80s and Eurovision Gold (with music from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s) – celebrating European musical culture.
