Breaking records

Eurovision 2019 is a winning game for Duncan Laurence from The Netherlands – in more than one way! The artist’s victorious song Arcade is proving to be an international hit, appealing to a large audience beyond Eurovision. It broke the Spotify record of being the most streamed Eurovision winner a day following the Grand Final with more than 2,83 million streams and hit the top 14 spot in Spotify’s Global Top 50, an unprecedented feat.

Arcade is also topping the iTunes charts across the world, placing number 1 in eleven countries plus reaching the top-10 in many others, and placing 5th in iTunes Worldwide Song Chart, alongside the likes of Taylor Swift, Halsey and Lady Gaga.

Arcade is also charting in countries such as Canada, Japan, Mexico, Mozambique and the United States, making Duncan Laurence internationally the highest-charting artist of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019.

Concerts sold out

Meanwhile, Duncan Laurence is preparing himself for his first European tour. All of his planned concerts in his home country are already sold out, including his big concert at renowned venue Paradiso in Amsterdam on 5 July.
