Loreen - "Is It Love" + General Discussion

He/him
Is there a risk of this peaking too soon by the time the contest actually comes around? She's obviously incredible but I feel like this song and performance in particular has entered the world of casuals and social media a lot more than other entries in previous years.
Yeah that's always a risk, especially nowadays when people can see it a million times a day on TikTok.

As long as she's not overdoing it. I'd rather not see her performing it everywhere. She doesn't need to. The song and incredible visuals are doing all the promo for themselves.

And yeah @AcerBenII that really works. I know it's crazy hyperbolic, but it's one of the most visually striking live performances I've ever seen, yet it's really just smoke and lights. But the correct camera angles can almost make or break it. Get too close and the atmosphere is lost. Get too far out and the illusion is gone. It's tricky.

The screen obviously plays a massive part, but she truly sells the shit out of the most basic things.

Honestly the song has already done everything it needs to do. A second Eurovision win would be phenomenal, but lets not take away from the record-breaking success it's having already! I think there's always a case of wanting to break the next record, get the next number one, etc but after 'Statements' I know NONE of us would have dreamt this moment happening.

Well it hasn't done everything it needs to yet. The song's sole purpose is to win Eurovision, so a focus on that seems sensible.

The fact it's genuinely great, and it's achieving genuine success is amazing, and something that just isn't guaranteed with any Eurovision track, no matter how great we think it is.

Living like this must be so sad though
That's pretty rude. My life is pretty fulfilled, thanks all the same.

The song was entered into a song competition, where people literally score it and it competes for a win. It's literally the whole point. Every contestant says they're just there to have fun etc, because they don't want to appear ultra-competitive, and it saves face when they underperform.

Obviously, it doesn't mean we have to stop enjoying the song if it doesn't win. Practically all my favourite Eurovision songs are non-winners. But let's not pretend that's not why we have the song in the first place.

I thought about this too. But today some extra time might be an advantage. Look at Snap, if it had been out a couple of months earlier, maybe it would have its TikTok moment during Eurovision and it could have changed everything. And these days once a song peaks, there's a good chance it sticks around there for weeks.

Just noticed Tattoo has overtaken Statements to become her 3rd most streamed track ever on Spotify, with 12m streams. Getting to that amount 2 months before the actual competition is huge. It'll easily overtake My Heart is Refusing Me (17m) to be 2nd to Euphoria.

It's lovely to see her streams more than double since the release of Tattoo. They were around 1 million before and are now at 3.47 million.
