Darin Will Not Be Disqualified

CHART REFLECTION. There were speculations whether Darin’s Melodifestivalen entry would be disqualified as it was available for purchase before the official release. According to SVT, the mistake was made by the distributor that accidently made the track purchable online.

Darin’s “You’re Out of My Life” was downloaded 54 times, which rendered him the No.95 position on the download chart. As this, by no means was no fault of Darin’s, there will be no consequences. A correct decision, WelcheMusic thinks.

The song will be officially released later this March. Earlier this week, Sibel and Peter Jöback’s Melodifestivalen entries were leaked online. This prompted SVT to release previews of the tracks far earlier than usual.

UPDATE: The track was officially released on March 5, finally peaking at No.3. In total, “You’re Out of My Life” spent 13 weeks on the Swedish singles tally.
