According to the latest update of the pan-European iTunes songs charts, Loreen has a firm grip on several tallies across the region. Despite topping the UK tally earlier this week, ‘Euphoria’ has slipped. It is currently No.4 after Rudimental, fun. and Rihanna. Loreen has also lost the top position in Ireland to Flo Rida’s ‘Whistle.’ Another strong competitor is the Brazilian singer Gusttavo Lima, whose ‘Balada (Tchê tcherere tchê tchê)’ tops the tallies in the Netherlands and Switzwerland. Following the success of Michel Télo and Luan Santana, ‘Balada’ is a pop country track.
Supporting the pan-European success, Lorreen canceled an appearance in Jönköping earlier this week according to SvD.
