Arvingarna debuted on the 12th place on the Spotify chart. Their song “I Do” is also currently the highest charting andra chansen song. Lisa Ajax’s “Torn” debuted on the 17th place. Both of them qualified to the andra chansen from the fourth semifinal of the contest last weekend.
From the other songs competing in andra chansen this week, Anna Bergendahl’s “Ashes to Ashes” is currently the 25th most streamed song in Sweden and Vlad Reiser’s “Nakna i regnet” made a comeback to the chart and is currently sitting on the 31st spot.
Nano, who will compete against Vlad in the andra chansen, also got his song back to the chart and is currently two places lover than Vlad, on 33rd. Rebecka Karlsson (36th), Andreas Johnson (45th) and Martin Stenmarck (46th) also just got their songs back on the chart.
