Abba have lost out on the most-streamed Eurovision song of all time to Dutch singer Duncan Laurence.
RuPaul’s Drag Race star Michelle Visage announced during Radio 2’s Eurovision: The Official All-Time Most-Streamed that the Swedish pop group’s classic Waterloo, which won the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest, came in second place.
Laurence’s ballad Arcade came out on top as the most-streamed Eurovision track after it won the competition in 2019, securing a first Eurovision title since 1975 for the Netherlands.
The list comes ahead of the 66th edition of the competition, with two semi-finals across May 10th and 12th followed by the grand final in Turin, Italy, on May 14th.
Think About Things by Dadi Freyr, which was due to be Iceland’s entry in the 2020 contest before the event was cancelled due to the pandemic, took third place on the list.
It had been considered one of the favourites to win before the cancellation, however, it later went on to become a viral hit through TikTok.
The group represented Iceland the following year with the song 10 Years, finishing in fourth place.
The winners of the 2021 competition – Italian rock band Maneskin – came in fifth for their hit track Zitti E Buoni.
