‘Amar Pelos Dois’ Hits iTunes #1 Following ESC2017 [LISTEN]

After managing to defeat the televised contest’s 25 other contestants to be crowned winner of this year’s Eurovision, Salvador Sobral’s Amar Pelos Dois has this morning officially entered the iTunes Singles Chart.

The violin-dripped pop ballard, which breaks away from the usual Eurovision mould of being in-your-face-cheese, has become #1 in Portugal over the last hour – as it currently sits at #51 on the European iTunes Song Chart, and #85 on the global chart.

As a little further background, Salvador’s LP debut –Excuse Me– saw its release last August where it landed at #10 on the Portuguese Albums Chart and later spawned standouts: Excuse Me, Nem Eu and After You’ve Gone.

This year’s winning song was actually co-composed by Salvador’s sister, Luísa Sobral – a Lisbon native and known herself for meandering between the areas of soul, pop and jazz.

Upon winning the contest, Salvador expressed his beliefs that we currently live in a world of ‘disposable music,’ or what he referred to as “fast food” music…

“Music is not fireworks, music is feeling,” the singer concluded.

Fun fact: Portugal itself has not won the Eurovision Song Contest, for over 50 years
