Netflix’s ‘Eurovision Song Contest’ reaches No 1

Iceland’s own “Fire Saga” has No. 1 song in hometown of Iceland

The soundtrack for Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, a Netflix Film directed by David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) starring Will Ferrell, Rachel McAdams, Dan Stevens, Demi Lovato and Pierce Brosnan is projected to crack ten million streams in its first week of release. The soundtrack available now via Arista Records reached No. 1 on the iTunes overall chart in five countries including the US, and No. 1 on the Apple Music soundtracks chart in 24 countries. Breakout track, “Húsavík (My Hometown)” reached the Top 10 on the iTunes overall chart in over a dozen countries and entered the Spotify Top 200 chart in Sweden, Norway, The UK and Ireland. It’s currently No. 37 on the US Shazam Chart. In a surprising twist, the film proves extraordinarily prescient, as Fire Saga, the film’s musical group consisting of Lars (Will Ferrell) and Sigrit (Rachel McAdams) hit No. 1 on the Spotify Top 200 Chart in their hometown of Iceland with their single, “Húsavík (My Hometown).”

In addition to “Húsavík (My Hometown)” performed by Molly Sandén, the soundtrack includes original songs from the film, featuring Will Ferrell and additional cast members, as well as “In The Mirror” performed by GRAMMY Award-nominated artist, Demi Lovato and fan favorites “Double Trouble” and “Jaja Ding Dong.”
