The two most recent Eurovision winners, Måneskin and Duncan Laurence, continue to go from strength to strength as they both make Billboard’s top 10 Emerging Artists chart, with the two artists currently at number one and two respectively.
This week marks Måneskin’s second week on the chart, and their first week occupying the top spot, whilst Duncan Laurence has peaked at number two since July 24th.

Since bringing Italy their first Eurovision win in over 30 years, Måneskin have become something of a global sensation, topping the charts not only in Europe, but further afield in the United States and Australia. Måneskin’s cover version of “Beggin'” is still charting in the United States, and currently sits at number 46 on the Billboard Hot 100, whilst “I Wanna Be Your Slave” is at number 14 on Billboard’s Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart.
After winning Eurovision in 2019, Duncan Laurence took “Arcade” to the top of the charts across Europe, and in the United States, where the song peaked at number 2 on Billboard’s Euro Digital Song Sales Chart. Arcade saw something of a resurgance in late 2020 and early 2021, when the song became very popular on TikTok. This resulted in over 200 million streams on Spotify, a return to the U.K. charts at number 29 and becoming the first Eurovision act since Gina G in 1996 to make the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.
