Loreen’s Euphoria tops the most popular chart in Spain

As it has happened all over Europe, the winning song of the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest has made it to the charts in Spain and Loreen has reached the number one on the chart of Los 40 Principales. After four weeks climbing positions Euphoria has been the most voted song by the listeners this week.

It started five weeks ago when Euphoria entered the most popular Spanish chart known as Los 40 Principales ranked 26th on the list. The following week it climbed to number 17, then it came into the top 10 with the 10th position and last week it ranked 7th. This Saturday, Loreen has been the favourite for the listeners and she has managed to reach the top.

Los 40 Principales is Spain’s most important radio station with more than 4 million listeners nationwide. Currently the list is the result of the vote of the listeners through phone calls and the official website.
