Throughout 2017, Eurovision Union was dedicated in bringing you Weekly Playlists with new music from Eurovision and National Final stars, new and old, as well as stars we’d love to see at Eurovision one day! We made so many musical discoveries, and through 2018, we want to share with you which songs we’ve been loving! Some songs will come and go, and some will stick around – here are our Eurovision Union Chart Toppers!
1. Serio – Emis Killa ft. Capo Plaza (NEW)
Our charts have been dominated by Italian artists over the last couple of Chart Toppers, but we haven’t yet had an Italian song hit number one, until now. Emis Killa has been a resident in our charts for his songs such as Non Era Vero and Linda, but he’s recently come out with his new track Serio featuring Capo Plaza, and we’re obsessed.
2. Tifældigt – Basim (↑11)
Basim has been in our Top 5 Chart Toppers in every edition, and this fortnight is no exception. This time it’s Tifældigt which has been our favourite, and we even said last Chart Toppers that this wasn’t love at first listen, but it was a song that could grow the more you listen. That it did, because it’s number 2 this week!
3. Frida (mai, mai, mai) – The Kolors (NEW)
We finally got caught into the hype of Sanremo, and admittedly we were a bit underwhelmed. The song that really stood out to us was this track from The Kolors, which is a bit darker than some of their previous songs but a sound that really suits them. It’s a hit from us!
4. Knock Knock – Nika (NEW)
Speaking of hype, we’re not really getting into the La Forza for Estonia hype, but we’ve definitely created our own hype around this tune, which is also still fighting it out to represent Estonia at Eurovision this year. It’s modern, unique and interesting, and although slightly underwhelming live, it has potential. We’re not done done done done with this song just yet!
5. Tequila & Lemon – Elena Risteska (↑9)
It nearly slipped out of the charts last time, but it’s made a return into the Top 5 for the third time. It’s such an addicting song, and we love the ethnic sound and the mix of languages. We think it’s here to stay.
6. Comme Ci Comme Ça – Basim (↓3)
There’s not too much to say about this song, since it’s been in our Chart Toppers each and every time since we first launched this series. The Danish/Middle Eastern mix in Basim’s new music is addicting, and it shows, with Basim having three songs in the Top 10 this week.
7. Aji Aji – Basim (↓1)
8. Mamma Mia – LOUKA (↓6)
We had quite a few Destination Eurovision songs last Chart Toppers, but only a few have remained in our Chart Toppers this time around, with LOUKA’s entry Mamma Mia being our favourite of the group. The mix of French and Italian is seamless and we just think this is a top song.
9. Talk to the Hand – Aleksander Walmann (↓5)
Norway is bringing the goods to this national selection season, with some super amazing songs fighting it out to represent the nation at Eurovision, including this super addictive tune Talk to the Hand. It’s a bit sassy, and totally empowering in those moods when you just need a bit of a boost.
10. Stavo Pensando A Te – Fabri Fibra ft. Tiziano Ferro (↓3)
Sometimes we think it’s time for this song to move on to make room for another fresh new tune, but as soon as the song starts, the sing-a-long begins. The love is still strong for this one, and as we have said numerous times before, the unlikely mix of these two artists wasn’t our cup of tea, but clearly times have changed!
11. Guersace – Gue Pequeno (↑1)
Keeping the rap trend going, we’ve still got Gue Pequeno in rotation in our playlists. We still think it’s one of the catchiest choruses we’ve come across in a while, and it’s the pop/rap mix which makes it a bit more radio-friendly, especially for those who don’t have an affinity for rap.
12. Perdonami – Salmo (↓2)
Unlike the previous song which mixed pop and rap elements, this track from Salmo is definitely more rap than pop. It’s harder hitting, and it’s short and sweet, and that’s what we’ve loved about this song week after week.
13. Non Era Vero – Emis Killa (RETURN)
It’s rap central here at Eurovision Union at the moment, with not only Emis Killa topping our Charts this time around, but he’s also back with a song that slipped out of our charts, but returns this week at number 13. We love the melody of this track, especially the verses.
14. Same – June the Girl (↓9)
We’ve lost a bit of the love for this song, which was in our Top 5 last time, but in moderation it can act as a bit of a break from all that Italian rap! The chorus really is the star of this song, and it’s just so incredibly charming that we can’t help but give it the occasional listen.
15. Suburbia – Kilian & Jo ft. Erik Rapp (RETURN)
It’s another return for this week, and it’s a song that fell off our radar with all these new Eurovision and national final songs capturing our attention, but when the hype dies down, this song is there to pump you back up again. Erik Rapp is by far one of our favourite artists, and this is definitely one of our favourite tracks he features on, and even the acoustic version is amazing.
16. Habibi Aiwa – Gilli (↓5)
Gilli made his debut on our charts last time, and we were introduced to him through Basim’s song Comme Ci Comme Ça to which he features on. He has similar features in his songs that Basim does, so it’s a bit of a no brainer that we would like this too.
17. Kiss Me – Naeman (↓5)
Every playlist of ours needs that token cheesy pop number, and this week that spot goes to Naeman’s national final entry Kiss Me. It could have been the Swiss entry, but didn’t quite get there in the end. Either way, we’ve kept it firmly in our playlist!
18. Ulay Nedaber – Nadav Guedj (RETURN)
Nadav Guedj’s latest single Ulay Nedaber got a bit lost on our radar for a while there, especially after topping our first ever Chart Toppers post, but it’s making its way back into our playlists. We’ve loved all Nadav’s releases, but this is probably our favourite.
19. Scandilove – Ida Maria (↓11)
This song is an absolute bop, and although we’d love to see Aleksander Walmann return to the Eurovision stage this year, we can’t help but also want this song to take to the Eurovision stage, as we know it would get the whole arena up and dancing. It’s out there, and the lyrics are a bit hilarious, but it all adds to the charm.
20. Won’t Let You Go – Poptracker ft. Nathan Trent (NEW)
Seeing Nathan Trent’s social media presence reminded us of this 2018 release from the former Austrian Eurovision artist, and now that we’ve found it, we won’t let it go. This is another total bop, and we can see why the fans totally got on board with this one.
