In the tenth position of the Top Songs Debut Global chart, there’s Elisa, a singer-songwriter who started her career in 1996.

Thanks to her track, she won the Bigatti Prize as the best musical composition of the entire contest.
La Rappresentante di Lista
La Rappresentante di Lista (also known by the acronym LRDL) is an Italian band made up of Veronica Lucchesi and Dario Mangiaracina in 2011 in Palermo. They define themself as a “queer band“: La Rappresentate di Lista is a symbol of change, transformation and quirkiness. The duo competed in the Sanremo contest with the track Ciao Ciao, a catchy and danceable single that conquered the audience at the first listening. In Spotify’s global chart, we find Ciao Ciao in the ninth position.
Filippo Maria Fanti, known as Irama, is an Italian singer and songwriter. He participated in Sanremo Music Festival four times: in 2016, 2019, 2021, and this year, with the song Ovunque Sarai. This latest track is a melancholic ballad, which was immediately acclaimed by the public and critics. He ended up in the fourth position of Sanremo’s overall standings and conquered the eighth one in Spotify’s Top Songs Debut Global chart.
