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!
- Trap Phone – Gue Pequeno feat. Capo Plaza (NEW)
We have a new king in town, at least for this week! We’ve seen Italian rapper Gue Pequeno on our Chart Toppers before, in fact, many times but never at the top spot. Trap Phone is the latest release from Gue Pequeno who has also just released a new album.
2. Imprint – Felix Sandman (↑16)
There was a small moment in time when I didn’t pay enough attention to this song but it has certainly been rectified and this banging track from Felix Sandman has well and truly been on repeat. I’m a bit slow off the mark to listen to Felix’s debut album, but for now this track will keep me going until then!
3. I Wanna Fall In Love Again – Robin Bengtsson (↑13)
Yet another catchy Swedish tune, and this may just be my favourite from Robin Bengtsson. Although his Eurovision song was catchy, his latest single has a nicer melody making it an easy listen. It’s absolutely worth a listen if you haven’t already had a chance!
4. La Mesa – Omar Rudberg (↓3)
It’s a very Swedish Top 5 this week, other than our #1 Chart Topper this week, but although Omar Rudberg is Swedish, the song La Mesa has taken inspiration from his South American heritage. The more I listen to this song, the more I question whether I prefer this one or Que Pasa, but what I’m confident about is that this is a cracking song.
5. I Wouldn’t Know – Benjamin Ingrosso (↑4)
This was yet another song that took a fair few listens to truly fall in love with, but I’ve reached that point where I don’t want to stop listening to the song. Better late than never!
6. Don’t Talk About It – Aminata (↑11)
Aminata’s latest track wasn’t love at first listen, but like we said about the previous song, it just took a few listens to get into the groove. The retro style song hits all the right notes, and the highlight of the song is the punchy bridge that focuses on her incredible vocals!
7. Paradise – Ofenbach feat. Benjamin Ingrosso (↓5)
Benjamin Ingrosso could put his name and voice to any song and i’d be sure to love it, and this song is a prime example. His voice suits well to this song, even though it’s a bit different in style to the music he has released himself.
8. Dance You Off (Extended Version) – Benjamin Ingrosso (↑5)
Usually by this time, the Eurovision songs of the year fade away only to be reminisced occasionally, but Dance You Off is hanging around. It was a favourite before the contest, and it’s emerged as a clear post Eurovision favourite too.
9. Perdonami – Salmo (↓2)
When does a song go from being a current favourite to an all-time favourite? Perdonami has been on our Chart Toppers all year, so surely it can be considered an all-time favourite? It’s short, sweet and leaves you wanting more!
10. Teléfono – Aitana (↓7)
This song is such a bop, and if you’re in the market for a new, contemporary pop song this is the one. Aitana’s voice is heavenly and so is the melody. This song has certainly had a few listens over the last fortnight!
11. Blossom – Molly Hammar (↓7)
It’s a bit provocative, but Molly Hammar hits the spot with Blossom, one of the tracks off her latest EP, Sex. It’s a contemporary number that oozes sex appeal and proves that Molly has still got it, even though it took a while to get this EP!
12. Tesla – Capo Plaza ft. Sfera Ebbasta & DrefGold (↓7)
This track from Italian rap newcomer remained at the top of our Chart Toppers for a while, but it was time to step aside. As someone who enjoys the occasional rap song, this certainly fulfils the requirements with its catchy melody.
13. One Last Time – Gromee ft. Jesper Jenset (↓7)
Speaking of catchy, the latest track from Polish Eurovision act Gromee is up there with the best releases of the year from former Eurovision artists. Here’s hoping that his collaboration days with Jesper Jenset aren’t over, because this is a tune and a half!
14. Heaven On My Skin – Oscar Enestad (↓6)
The Swedish are at the top of their game when it comes to pop music, and this song is proof of that. Oscar Enestad may have just started his solo career, but it’s easy to see from this release alone that he is going to be successful.
15. Que Pasa – Omar Rudberg (↓4)
Speaking of success, fellow former FO&O member Omar Rudberg is also bound for success with his ‘international Latino’ pop style that we’ve seen on both La Mesa and Que Pasa. All three former boyband members released killer debut singles, and it will be interesting to see Omar’s career progress.
16. Lungomare Latino – Gue Pequeno ft. Willy William (↓4)
This is a bit of a guilty pleasure song, but it keeps with the Latino theme going on in our Chart Toppers! It’s a good mix of rap and pop, a mixture that’s featured a lot less on Gue’s latest album Sinatra.
17. Arquitectura – Mandinga (↓7)
Also in that Latino pop style is Romanian group Mandinga who hit the nail on the head with this song. Both the original and the salsa version are welcome additions to my personal playlist, and it’s hard to decide which one I prefer!
18. Žiūrėk Ką Padarei – Donny Montell (↓4)
Gone are the ‘Love Is Blind’ days as we’ve welcomed an edgier version of Donny Montell. We saw a bit of this edgy side at Eurovision 2016, but with this release he has come out in full force. This is a fantastic track, in fact, it could just be one of the best of the year.
19. Elevate – Blissful (↓4)
Once upon a time this track was elevated (higher) in our Chart Toppers, but recently it hasn’t been getting as much love as it once had. Despite that, Elevate is a stand out electro pop tune that deserves much more love than it is getting – and not just from me!
20. Secrets – Nathan Trent (=)
Closing out our Chart Toppers this time around is Nathan Trent’s latest single, well, at least the English version of it! This song is infectious, so once you start, you can’t stop listening to it! I can’t wait to hear his next single which is on its way, so watch this space!
