Eurovision contestants Mae Muller and Loreen make early progress in the UK chart race

Mae Muller

Europe didn’t show much interest, but the British audience is embracing Mae Muller’s song, “I Wrote A Song.” Muller had the privilege of representing the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest, which reached its grand final on Saturday night at Liverpool Arena.

Historically, the UK hasn’t had much success at Eurovision, and Muller’s entry didn’t receive an overwhelming response from the Eurovision panel or viewers. It ended up second-from-last, receiving only 24 “public” and “jury” votes, far behind the winning entry from Sweden, which amassed an impressive 583 combined points.

Despite this lackluster performance at Eurovision, Muller’s song is set to make its mark on the UK charts, surpassing its previous peak of No. 30, achieved in March of this year. Based on sales and streaming data from the first 48 hours of the chart cycle, “I Wrote A Song” is projected to climb 36 places to reach No. 9. If it maintains its momentum, the song, co-written by Muller along with Karen Poole and Lewis Thompson, will mark Muller’s first appearance in the top tier of the charts.

Meanwhile, Sweden’s Loreen, who won Eurovision in the past, is expected to experience another taste of victory on the UK charts. Her Eurovision-winning song, “Tattoo,” is poised to make its debut at No. 28. Over the weekend, Loreen became the first woman to win Eurovision twice, joining the ranks of Johnny Logan, the Melbourne-born Irish singer, as the second artist overall to achieve this feat.

In the upper ranks of the UK singles chart, Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding are on track for a sixth non-consecutive week at No. 1 with their song “Miracle.” The chart also sees an upward movement of several dance music tunes, including “React” by Switch Disco and Ella Henderson (No. 6) and “Baby Don’t Hurt Me” by David Guetta, Anne-Marie, and Coi Leray (No. 10). Additionally, K-pop girl group Fifty Fifty is soaring to a new peak at No. 7 with their song “Cupid.”

The Official UK Singles Chart, which will be published on Friday (May 19), will reveal the final rankings and the impact of these songs on the British music scene.
