Loreen enters the Swedish singles chart at No.29 on the Swedish Top 40. The track will compete in tomorrow’s Second Chance competition. Only then, we will know if she has a chance to defend her crown in the finale. Meanwhile, Wiktoria is the highest (new) entry from Melodifestivalen. At No.7, she is the only artist from the competition to reach top ten this week.
Swedish Top 40
WelcheMusic.com has previously reported on daily streaming figures from Spotify. On a daily basis, ‘As I Lay Me Down’ is a top 4 hit in terms of streaming. Ed Sheeran rules the Swedish Top 40 with ‘Shape of You’ ahead of Joakim Lundell.
The highest new entry on the chart comes in the shape of The Chainsmokers and Coldplay. Their collaboration, ‘Something Just Like This’ vaults in at No.4.
FO&O climbs 17-11 in its second week with ‘Gotta Thing About You.’ Robin Bengtsson is new at No.15 with ‘I Can’t Go On.’
Benjamin Ingrosso’s ‘Good Lovin’’ is new at No.17. As Anton Hagman advances from 33-21 with ‘Kiss You Goodbye,’ he is well ahead of Loreen. Favorites Nano (No.23), Jon Henrik Fjällgren (No.25) and Mariette (No.40) cleary indicates that the competition is fierce.
There is another chart that includes many Melodifestivalen entries. The Heatseeker chart consists of tracks outside the Top 100. They have not ever reached the Top 100, but may one day do so. Owe Thörnqvist is at No.2 with ‘Boogieman Blues.’ Roger Pontare and Krista Siegfrieds also climbs that chart.
